You can find a gallery of images documenting the raft's building process and the event itself on our Facebook page in an album called 'Paddle Round the Pier 2011'.
We set up in the Paddle Village where customers were able to try on a pair of our VIVOBAREFOOT Ultras, Achilles or Dopies, test them out on our pressure pads, and have any of their questions answered.
This simply could not have gone under way had it not been for the massive input from the volunteers, friends and generous donations of materials we received from various businesses. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved for the help and support offered. We at Terra Plana would like to welcome those who pitched in to a 25% discount on any full priced item in store as a token of appreciation and respect for those hard working and charitable hearts that just keep giving. Please contact Ethan Gunn in the Brighton store using the details below.

Once I had reached 30 I no longer rushed around quite so much but still continued to run for pleasure, as I find running to be... Read more

The Barefoot giveaway promotion on Saturday the 22nd of January was a great success. We heard that some die hard Terra Plana fans had caught the 5.45am train down from London to join the queue! The queue started around 7am and had already reached around 50 people by the time we arrived at 9:30 to prepare the shop. We started letting people in to the shop at 10:00 after taking a few photos of everyone without there shoes. At its peak the queue had approximately 80 people waiting, not including those who had already made it... Read more
