This shoe has a great barefoot feel, yet the sole protects from sharp rocks along the road. The Evo also is good for trails, feels like a cross country shoe. Plus the black/re…

About Men's Barefoot and Minimalist Shoes:
If you're checking out the men's barefoot shoes on this page, then you probably already know how popular minimalist running has become. You probably also know there's all sorts of science and what not that shows how great barefoot running can be for you. All I know is that I always catch the girls on my co-ed, beer league, track team starring at my shoes. The ones I have are bright blue color, and really bring out my eyes. And the most important thing recreational track and field is to match your shoes to your eyes.
I own quite a few pairs of barefoot shoes, and absolutely love them. I have a really sweet pair of minimalist shoes that look like gloves on, but on my feet. These things have individual pockets for each of my toes to slide into. Not gonna lie though, they felt a little weird at first, but once I got used to them, I feel like they're the most comfy things my feet have ever worn. I mainly wear them for kayaking, and running. The best thing is that they dry super quick, so when I get them wet while kayaking, they dry fast.
Not all barefoot shoes need to have the separated toe thing going on. I have a couple other pairs that look exactly like normal shoes. I have a more normal looking pair of minimalist shoes that I use for my crossfit training. They're great because they have just a little bit of cushioning in the soles, so that my feet don't hurt when I do jumping exercises and what not.
Another pair that I have isn't really designed for any athletic activities. They're just great barefoot shoes that look like any other semi-dress casual shoes. You know, the type of shoe you would wear out to the bar. They're sort of like the mullet of shoes, saying, "I'm formal, but I like to party."
Before you scroll back up the page and check out our selection of barefoot shoes from the best brands in the industry, I want to note that if you are just getting into the barefoot shoe game, take it easy at first. Although minimalist shoes will be a more natural feel, spending years in more "traditional" shoes have probably taught you to walk and run in an unnaturally. Wearing barefoot shoes will pretty much correct that issue automatically. The thing is, it takes a little while for your body to get used to the feeling, so take it easy at first. For example, for your first few times out running, only run in your minimalist shoes for about half the distance you would normally run. That's probably all you'll really be able to run anyway, because you'll for sure feel the burn in your calf muscles.
The guy that sits next to me always wears barefoot shoes. His calf muscles are HUGE. Like, has to wear shorts all day, every day, huge. I want to ask him about it, but nobody knows his name.
