I don't understand this whole "Running Barefoot" thing, but I do like these shoes. I guess you would consider me more of a geek since I wear them with low profile socks (the world does not want to smell my sweaty feet). I also put an arch in them. So you wonder, "Why did she buy them". Well, the...

I have a pair of barefoot Merrells and love them so when I saw these I thought they'd be a great addition to my wardrobe, they are indeed! I wear these shoes for Jazzercise and really like them. I usually wear them with light socks as I prefer just a little more moisture wicking and padding. I also got a chance to wear them hiking on vacation this winter and they were great for hiking volcanic terrain as you can feel the ground under you, without being uncomfortable. I usually wear a 9 - 9 1/2 and the 9 works well for me in these shoes. While a little snug at first, they do stretch and form to your foot as you wear them. – A great shoe!

these are great looking shoes. they are comfortable and there's room for an arch support for long hikes or walks. I'm looking forward to wearing them at work too. they will be great for travel because of their light weight

I bought a pair of these a few months ago for walking and jogging home and on the road w/o socks. I always had used regular running shoes, but they seemed very confining, cumbersome, and heavy, and socks were required. I loved the these at first wearing. I bring them everywhere. I love the way my foot strikes the ground in them, and as yoga person, them enable me to use my toes more in both walking and jogging. I love feeling the ground under my feet. I am a women's 6 in regular shoes and usually wear a 6.5 in NB. I ordered the 6.5 and kept it, but it is almost too small.

These are extremely comfortable shoes and offer good support. I am on my feet all day long and these are perfect! They seemed a bit snug at first but now fit quite comfortably. I would most likely purchase another pair in the future. The only negative thing I have found is the tread seems to wear very quickly, as I have had these shoes for a few weeks and the tread has worn off to a smooth texture so they do not grip as well. One would think they would make a sturdier tread since these were designed for trailing running. If I had used them for that I fear there would be no tread left at all with in a month!

The drop is 4mm. The Minimus 10 shoe features a 4mm heel-to-toe drop, ideal for those looking to transition to a mid-foot strike, or pursue a more minimal experience with less material between your feet and the ground.|For runners looking to transition to lower stack heights, the Minimus 1010 offers a minimal underfoot feel while providing the protective support of a traditional trail shoe, bringing you from more to minimal with every step.
