I've been running barefoot and now my distances are gradually increasing I want to buy some vibram five fingers - trouble is none of the running shops stock them (and we all know why that is!), sports direct don't answer the phone so I can't find out if they stock them

does anybody know a uk retailer (I live in manchester) where I can try a pair on

no use me ordering off ebay or online to find out they don't fit or are uncomfortable


Help apprecited

Check Start Fitness - they had KSOs in the store I think, so you should get 'em on their site...

Their website has a store-locator page.

One of the larger, more hard-core climbing and walking shops in Keswick sells originals, along with a really good range of minimalist running shoes (not Planet Fear - it has a rather anonymous name that I can't remember). Think they also had the KSOs.

The ones I got through Amazon were definitely genuine. I would recommend not buying from Ebay: too many counterfeits.

If you've got Egyptian shaped toes, no bunions and fairly average arches (a lot of ifs), it's a fairly safe bet that you'll get ones that fir if you follow the sizing instructions on Vibram's website.

I've never seen a running shop that stocked them, although the Up & Running in Keswick had those even more minimalist toe-shoes that seem to be made of latex or gel.
