Hey guys

I'm looking to get some VFFs and http://www.runnerinn.com/ has some good prices.

I've been warned to be wary of where you purchase these (especially when a good price is being offered) and I cannot workout if this site is legit or not?


I've used Alexa and All Who Is, to try and verify the site, and still can't make my mind up!




The site has a lot of connected sites so i'm hoping someone on here may have heard or hopefully successfully used the site, had a google search and couldnt find any reviews or feedback

I have no idea what VFFs are, but I bought my Garmin 910 from them this year. They are based in Spain and asked for a photocopy of my passport to be emailed to them, which I thought was strange but apparently this is fairly normal inside the EU.

My Garmin arrived within 3 days as promised and is fine. I would certainly use them again.

(Vibram FiveFingers, sorry)

Thanks for the advice

I have just had a rather nasty experience with them. Ordered a headlamp they have admitted was lost (after 2 weeks of chasing them for updates about the delivery) somewhere between Germany and the UK. They were unwilling to help and unwilling to give me a refund.

The battle is still ongoing with them.

Do not touch them with a barge pole - would be my advice.

I know it's been a few weeks since the last post, but thought my experience was worth mentioning.

Ordered two pairs of of Vibrams as I was not sure of the sizing. Having placed my order I noticed that one of the items was out of stock, this wasn't indicated against the product when I selected it. I emailed them not to hold the order and send what they had and cancel the out of stock item. Almost by return I received an email saying that they had canceled the out of stock item as a matter of policy and that my Pay Pal account would be credited. It was the following day.

Delivery updates via GLS suggested that the parcel was doing a tour of europe. I think that's more to do with GLS as their hub is in Germany. Anyway a week later the Vibrams turned up, well packaged and they are very comfortable.

So my experience was as good as any company I have purchased from in the UK. I would certainly consider them again.

just used them for the first time for a new pair of runners. was promised the product by the 15 march and now i receive a random email saying they are not even going to receive them (themselves) till at least the 30 march. this is not what they advertised, this is not what i agreed. shocking way to do business.


tried to contact them, couldnt get through. first and last time dealing with this company! STAY CLEAR

I've used them with no problems. Good price. Item turned up on time and as promised. It did go around Eurpope first, but got me me just fine.

DO NOT USE I paid for an expedited delivery, checked on their website to see where my order was only to find that there was no order showing. Emailed them via their website no response. Emailed them via the contact email, again no response. I spent 45 minutes yesterday and 1 hour today on the phone to them on an automated line, They answered after about an hour then disconnected. They do not respond to emails and there is no way to contact them. They send an email to you when you complain like i'm doing but the email is noreply@tradecomunication.com and so it just bounces back to you I paid via pay pal so have an order number and now am in dispute resolution. The 5 star reviews are hoaxes just checking on them and you will find that they have also reviewed (5 stars) several of the other websites owned by 'TRADEINN', Just like Runnerinn these are also fakes designed to get you to part with your money.   I CAN NOT SAY THIS CLEARLY ENOUGH DO NOT USE. THEY WILL STEAL YOUR MONEY.

Don't use. I've had a bad experience now twice and will never use them again. They tell you the item you've ordered will be with you in 3-5 days and then the emails start - telling you there has been a delay and that it will be another week before the goods are there. These were trainers but I had the same thing with goods from another of their sites. There are lots of them - DiveInn, TrekkInn, SwimInn. Today, one month after placing the order for the trainers (they took my money on 9 October) I've cancelled and ordered elsewhere. BEWARE AND DON"T USE ANY OF THESE COMPANIES.

10/11/2015 at 18:15
