Here is my list of local outfitters here in Southern Utah who can help you find minimalist hiking, climbing and running shoes that work in the Utah deserts and canyons.
The Desert Rat
Comments: You can find the full line of Vibram Five Finger shoes here. Store is geared for climbing, hiking, and camping. Bo Beck, store manager and climbing expert, has been guiding climbs and leading rescue activities at Zion’s for years. He has done a few ultra marathons and is quite well versed about the area — especially climbs, hikes, and runs in Zion’s National Park.
