Epic Article on Minimal Shoes

Published by RunningPoint on Tuesday, 22 Mar 2011 09:29 EDT

Justin over at Birthday Shoes has written an epic article about minimal shoes and the pros and cons of different designs with a focus on why the toe shoes, best example being Vibram FiveFingers, exist and are a superior design. After reading, I am a bit more intrigued by the validity of design choice to make shoes with toe pockets and would probably even consider trying a pair on now. I have always been a bit apprehensive about the FiveFingers since my second toe is longer than my big toe and I have read numerous times that FiveFingers are notoriously bad for not fitting my type of foot. I still don't think that I would ever give up my huaraches, but I really appreciate the amount of thought and information that Justin poured into this article. Check it out and if you don't regularly read the Birthday Shoes content, you should.
