I love minimalist shoes or barefoot more, these are perfect besides the fact they only offer one toe design. my big toe is always snug or pressing up against the rubber or plastic but my pinky toe and all the others are not even in the pocket most of the time. it would be great if they had at least one other option for toe slope. it is a shame to not be able to use any of these without tripping from four toes catching things with no toes in them. and I have bought a few different styles. if your foot is designed like these toe pockets then you may like this shoe for light activities, would break down quickly from running or strenuous workouts.
