On the evening of Wednesday 24th June, Galahad Clark, owner of Terra Plana shoes, came to the new NYC Terra Plana store for drinks, music, and a book signing with Christopher McDougall, author of the newly released bestseller Born to Run, published by Knopf. The event was a great success, have a look at the pictures below. All images courtesy of our wonderful photographer Kat Bryant.

Born to Run explores the subject of the world's ultra-runners: how they develop their abilities, and investigates how the multi-million dollar fitness shoe industry — built on arch supports, shock absorbers and extra padding — might actually be doing more harm than good.
