Another vote for Merrell barefoot shoes here!
Love my NB Minimus Trail shoes. Trying Vivobarefoot and will report back
Ok! I'll check Merrell out. Anyone have opinion on Vivobarefeet? I liked the vivo aqueous:
I love high tops, so I thought these looked sick.
Here's another one to look at: Altra "Zero Drop". I just got a pair of their "Eve" shoes, and they are very minimal--but they come with two different thickness insoles, so you can gradually get used to the pseudo-barefoot feeling. I've had them a few days, and they're very comfortable.
They also have running shoes with thicker soles, but without the elevated heel, so they're still "zero drop".
