THE MERRELL BLOG: WHAT'S NOW. WHAT'S NEXT. LET'S GET OUTSIDE.
Looking to run up walls?
Do you remember the opening chase scene from James Bond Casino Royale, where Bond chases one of the bad guys through a high-rise building site, climbing over scaffolding, through elevator shafts and up walls? Well this is Parkour; a sport of free-running using obstacles to move quickly from one place to another. The only real piece of equipment you need to practice Parkour are some good shoes and we are proud to be informed that the Merrell Barefoot shoes are some of the best. Shoes like the Merrell Barefoot Trail Glove offer the freedom, durability and traction needed to keep you on your feet when you are running along the trails or up walls!
The Australian Parkour Association recently held its annual gathering in Magnetic Island and asked us for a few pairs of Trail Gloves to take along, which we were happy to oblige.
They have very kindly sent us this video of some of the beautiful places they visited, and some shots of the Trail Gloves in Action. Check out the video here!
