Merrell Barefoot Collection: The Wait Is Over


The eagle has landed!  A pair ranges from $90 to $120.  Merrell Barefoot Collection offers six different models, three for men and three for women.  Uniquely designed to engage your feet and strengthen your body’s core, from your feet up, the super-light, low-profile designs create a link to the terrain that immediately stimulates the senses and increases your quickness and agility

Merrell Philippines will be bringing in the Barefoot Collection by April 8 and I have to say that the price point is very attractive. The men's shoes will be sold around P4,500 while the women's will be pegged at P4,000
