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.

Merrell Vapor Glove Best running shoe I've ever had
March 15, 2013
Reviewer: Laur from Cape Cod
I had read several good reviews of the Merrell Vapor and it sounded like a really different running shoe. I love it, it is the best shoe I ever purchased. I love how lightweight it is, you really feel like you are barefoot. I plan on getting another pair just to wear.

Merrell Run Bare Access Arc 2 zero drop with a bit of cushion
February 06, 2013
Reviewer: Jo from Las Vegas, NV
This is a minimalist style, zero drop shoe; the heel is not raised higher than the toe. You should be conditioned for this type of shoe before running in it. I like this shoe for running longer distances. Very little cushion, just enough to make it more comfortable, but it is still what I'd call firm, not squishy. The toe box is wide, which is good for toe splay. No achilles cut-out, but it is comfortable nonetheless; I don't notice any rubbing. Good all-around shoe.

ECCO Biom Lite 1.3 Ecco athletic shoes
December 29, 2012
Reviewer: Charlene from Pacifica, CA
I was leery when ordering this shoe because I have for the past several years worn another Ecco shoe that they have discontinued. I am partial to Ecco athletic shoes because I have a narrow foot and it is difficult to find an athletic she that does not slide against my heel. I am very surprised and pleased with this shoe. It is extremely light weight and fits like a slipper. My one concern is whether the sole will last with all the walking I do. I walk on concrete and dirt surfaces, so time will tell. But thus far, I've already recommended this shoe to friends.
Wears this shoe: I wear it mostly for walking 2 - 4 miles daily.
