Barefoot refers to footwear designed with a flexible, thin sole that is shaped like a foot in order to make the shoe feel more like bare feet than traditional shoe soles. These flexible soles allow feet to have a better sense and feel of the ground while still providing foot protection. Types of barefoot footwear include toe shoes, huaraches, racing flats, hiking flats, and running shoes.
Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.
Keen A86 TR Very thin soles
December 13, 2012
Reviewer: Zendot from Florida
I really liked the feel of the uppers. They are very light and comfortable. I thought they looked great with jeans. A little weird but that's why you buy them, right? Very light like you are wearing no shoes at all. Unfortunately, the soles are so thin that I could feel the little bump tread on the bottom. They felt like I was walking on marbles. My feet started to hurt after half an hour. Not at all comfortable. Too bad.
Wears this shoe: casual

I've worn these shoes to 2 or 3 events so far that required a lot of standing in lines, walking (state fair & mall shopping) and I'm amazed at how comfortable they are! I highly recommend them and I'm very satisfied in the quality.
Wears this shoe: Out and about; when I want to wear something comfortable

Reviewer: Randy from Summerville, SC
This is my fourth pair of K Swiss. I have had them two weeks and run 50 miles. I run 12 miles and day during the week. My other three pair are micro tubes and I really enjoy runnung in them. I am still trying to to decide if I like the vertical tubes as well as the micro. Although I am not sure which I like better I cannot give this shoe a bad review.
