    I'm looking for a pair of minimalist hiking shoes.

    They should effectively drain water, be fast drying, have a thin but still pretty grippy outsole.

    Like these but with zero drop, thin sole and room for toes.

    Anyone with a suggestion?

    I like the Merrell Vapor Glove.

    Thanks for the tips. Never heard about those Carson shoes. It looks like they are not so wide and a bit to pointy so the big toes are forced in a bit? Or am I seeing it wrong?

    I think they are a bit wider than my Vapor Glove 2's.

    My Tadevo's dry out quick, are very grippy and very minimalist!
