This Company "gets" it
These shoes are stunning. I can honestly say I have NEVER felt so strongly towards a pair of shoes, or a company in my life. They truly care for their consumers, they want them to be happy, but they take it to a whole other level that I cannot explain. Not only do they offer a great product for minimalist runners, they also have things in play to help those transitioning into minimalism. They offer a support footbed with more padding and a slight arch. They also include a strengthening footbed for just a touch more padding. They are fully capable of being worn without either for those who want a little more ground feel.
For all those who are vegan!

As I mentioned, I have done a few runs in them so far and they are a dream. How they were compared "KSOs without the toes", I can see that and feel that. They are the most comfortable running shoes I own. The footbed feels great on the foot, the straps work like a charm, the ground is just as perfect as I remembered. What more could you want in a minimalist shoe? I mean really? And at $79.99 it's a STEAL!
So take my word for it, order a pair of minimalist shoes from my favorite company. I hope I have a chance to work with them more in the future for more of their shoes because these shoes, and their employees are one of a kind. Keep an eye on these guys. They are going to be the front runners by the end of this year. That is for sure!
