Great shop. Might appear small from the outside but super well equipped with all the models and sizes. Frank offered us a fantastic shopping experience while we were there, he seemed knowledgable and passionate about barefoot running and gave us a lot to make our decision with. Nothing beats coming into a shop and trying out the shoes compared to clicking online. I definitely recommend coming here if you’re looking for some good options to transition to Vibrams.
