Great beginners shoe.
on 26 November 2012
I'm new to barefoot running and wanted to take it up as I heard it was less stressful on the knees.
These shoes are ideal for a beginner with some cushioning for your sole. They are lightweight and have a wide toe spread but still supportive.
You do need to do them up tight or else they move around a bit which can be uncomfortable. I use these with thin socks but if you wear them barefoot, I would suggest keeping your toenails trimmed or else you would wear through the uppers.
Word of warning to all beginners at barefoot running, start with very short distances - or else your calves won't know what hit them.
Shoes aren't waterproof at all but dry very quickly. Merrell's website is good for tips and techniques as well.
I would highly recommend these shoes.
