Current Obsessions: New Balance Minimus Trail Shoe!


Hey Sole Foodies, it's Anilyn. I'm super excited to report that our store now carries the NEW New Balance Minimus Trail shoe for both men and women. It is the newest line of barefoot footwear from New Balance. The trail shoe features a rubber wrapped upper designed to reinforce the metatarsal, a stitched tongue to prevent debris from invading your twinkle toes, a wrapped toe to guard against rocks, and an outsole designed to allow the runner to feel the ground without compromising stability.


Now, not every runner is going to need this type of shoe. The NB Minimus is designed so that runners can strike the ground landing at midfoot.  It's best to introduce yourself to the sensation of wearing a shoe like this a little at a time. New Balance recommends that first time wearers do only 10% of their usual running/walking routine to help ease runners into the transition. 

My priorities are simple: I want to look and feel comfortable, at work and at play.  I have had these shoes for a little over three weeks now and I run in them constantly. I took it slow at first but now I'm racing at full sprint. I also love the coral color and it’s totally on trend right now! Come and test them out for yourself and see what all the hype is about.

Oh So Glittery! - Glittersweet Bags



Photo: Glittersweet Studio

Sole Food is so excited to welcome glittersweet to our boutique! Made with love in our hometown of Seattle, glittersweet is the creation of two moms who find sheer joy in all things glittery! They developed a great line of bags suitable for everyday use; they are pretty enough for a night out as well as practical for the grocery store and office.  

We have crossbody bags available in two sizes: the large tote and the medium tote.  There are also some ├╝ber-cute accessory cases that are perfect for everyday essentials, like your makeup, snacks, or zombie survival kit (just kidding!).  

Here is a sample of what we have in-store:
Medium Tote with Huckleberry Applique - Shop Here

These bags are a great everyday size, perfect for your daily essentials and more.  The long cross body strap features a gripper pad so the strap doesn't fall off your shoulders...how neat is that! There's a side pocket for your phone, keys, etc. and the lining is a fun, printed pattern.  Other styles we carry:
Daisy Applique - Shop Here


Blossom Applique - Shop Here
    This fully-zippered accessory case has a sleek liner that makes this bag easy to clean.  The fun designs available include Huckleberry, Wildflower, and Daisy.
