About Minimalist Running Shoes
Merrell barefoot-inspired running shoes incorporate a low-profile design combined with a 0mm heel-to-toe drop for heightened underfoot feel. They invite you to discover your Merrell Bareform™ through proper body posture, midfoot striking, and cadence counting (running at 180 steps per minute for optimal efficiency). Progressive and consistent training can help you build strength, increase underfoot sensation and improve alignment.
Driven to provide you with the ultimate minimalist experience, all New Balance Minimus shoes contain only necessary materials, making them almost 50% lighter than traditional lightweight running shoes. All Minimus shoes have a 4mm heel-to-toe drop and a wider toe box, which offers a more natural foot position and allows the foot to expand upon impact. Partnering with Good Form Running™, they believe that focusing on posture, midfoot striking, cadence and lean are the keys to injury-prevention and more running enjoyment.
Saucony understands that no two runners are alike, which is why they have designed a range of minimalist running footwear to accommodate different types of runners. All Saucony minimalist shoes have a significantly low heel-to-toe drop, thin underfoot materials, and lightweight, flexible uppers. Through slow, gradual incorporation into your training routine, you can improve the strength in your legs and feet and become a stronger runner.
While inov-8 understands that barefoot and minimal running are not for everyone, they are confident that there is a middle ground. They offer a range of shoes with heel-to-toe drops varying from 0mm to 9mm. Their variety of neutral running shoes allows you to make a gradual transition from a traditional cushioned shoe to a more minimal, natural position.
BIOM minimalistic shoes are based on the concept of natural motion. With support only where it's needed, the foot is allowed to move the way nature designed it to. All BIOM shoes are built on a neutral anatomical last for an enhanced fit and heightened sense of flexion. Whether you are a walker, the occasional runner, or a serious athlete, BIOM has a shoe to fit your needs.
Vivobarefoot designs barefoot-inspired shoes to help you move as nature intended. All Vivobarefoot shoes are built on a neutral last without traditional heel cushioning, arch support or a midsole. By following a training plan that involves correcting your posture, learning to midfoot strike, focusing on your rhythm, and gathering underfoot sensory feedback, they believe you can learn to run more efficiently and injury free.
