Phoned me up when the item I wanted wasn't in stock and offered me a different one, which was more expensive, at the lower price. Can't ask more than that! Delivery was very prompt too. Would definitely use again.
For any barefoot runners looking for that personalised homebrew feel, this site is for you.
outstanding quality and service
We have now used this site three times, and they have always provided the best value for money, and a speedy delivery even when you choose the free option, only purchase the last pair of running shoes as they where at such a low price, ready for replacing the previous set, which have now logged over 300 miles.
Everything went smoothly and effortlessly. The video showing the trainers was really helpful, and gave me an idea of what size to get and whether they suited me. They arrived quickly and they're exactly what I wanted :-)
An excellent website with absolutely first rate reviews and excellent pricing. Though the items I bought were end of range they were still £40-50 cheaper than alternative websites. The returns policy encouraged me to try some shoes without being able to try them on in the shop first. They arrived within 2 days, in perfect condition, and fit perfectly after I followed the advice given on the website with regards to sizing. I would recommend this website to absolutely anybody contemplating barefoot/minimalist running, and in fact, already have!
Barefoot Athlete provide a great service with the lowest prices out there. I've compared many shoes online and BA always comes out lowest which includes delivery! I've never been let down by their service and will continue using BA.
If like me you suffered from sore feet at the end of a long work day or just a long night, then these shoes are great for you.
I bought the NB Minimus Road shoes online as barely anyone in Australia stocks them. When they are in stock they're 1.5 times the price that they were on here, and that includes the price of international postage as well! Thanks Barefoot Athlete.
The correct product arrived:
In a timely manner.
In the condition and colour expected.
Email correspondence met upto expectations.
The price was competetive.
I can't comment on returns policy which I see as a positive.
Thankyou Barefoot Athlete :)
Ordered a pair of Merrell Trail Gloves which arrived quickly and were well packaged. I was unsure that i would receive anything as frankly i could not believe the price, so i was well chuffed! The shoes are great, fit brilliantly and are great to run in. I am two weeks into my minimalist transition and have discovered a renewed energy and hunger for running and although i'm very much still building my distance and time back up i'm enjoying the whole process enormously. I think the website is great with lots of info and links on how to transition safely, i thoroughly recommend Barefoot athletics based on my experience this far.
Same day dispatch, free p&p, some of the best prices on the internet, immediate responses to email and a full knowledge of the products they sell not just a load of patronising guff - and I bet they pay tax in the UK.
The inclusion of a brief barefoot running guide with your purchase is a fantastic touch.
A superb company.
As the primary source for feeding my Vivobarefoot shoe habit, I have found the advice from the staff to be excellent. My purchases have been shipped to me in good time and I am a very satisfied customer.
The shopping experience with Barefoot Athlete was great and I got a superb pair of Merrell barfeoot shoes for a very good price; best on the internet I could find.
Arrived fast and on time and I was very impressed overall, so much so, that I would use this company again. I have already recommended them to a friend who will be placing an order for some Merrell shoes in the next week. Well done!
This is one of the few websites I've used who actually go to the effort of adding their own opinions and advice to the product pages. It's so useful to get this extra insight before buying. Also free postage and very competitive prices make for a winning package.
Phoned the shop first to ask about sizing of the shoe, ordered online and they arrived next day. Unfortunately these shoes were around the same as the actual UK size although the shop advice (given honestly) was to buy a size larger as they tend to be smaller than expected. Returned them (at £6+ cost) as they were too big and received the smaller pair promptly, which have plenty of toe space and feel right when running (properly, not heel striking). I am normally a 9.5 shoe but could probably wear the 9 without it feeling too uncomfortable; however, these shoes have room for the toes to spread out and at present there is an excess. I reckon that when I get used to them the toe space will be about right.
My personal advice is to buy the normal UK size for your feet or half a size smaller.
It was very easy to get through on the phone to get some info before I made my order. I got a great deal on a great pair of shoes. They arrived very quickly.
Barfootathelete has the best selection of barefoot shoes out of any website i've come across, it has a nice looking & user friendly layout. The first shoes i ordered weren't to my liking & i returned them with no issues, they gave me a very fast refund & i managed to find a pair of shoes that were perfect for me. Will definitely use again in the future
These are really nice shoes for walking in. They are so comfy, lots of room for your toes and you get a great sense of feeling the ground. I think they also look OK (although they are wider than normal shoes)
