    Is there really a better minimalist shoe out there? I have high hopes for the Minimus Zero Road/Trail and the Merrell Road Glove but I still have not found anything better than the EVOs.

    Glad they're working for you,

    Glad they're working for you, Theo!



    I have less than 5 miles on my EVO IIs.

    Had to exchange the first pair to go up a size. Still, the toe box seems too narrow for me, even though the length is (mostly) better.

    Can't wear them for running because of the way the toe box creases (and crushes / hits my forefoot). Also find them way too heavy for what they are - I have several pairs of standard running shoes (allbeit flats and xc) that are much lighter.

    Thought I might wear them for bumming around - kind of a cool look; but not comfortable enough even for fashion's sake!



    Of course, everyone's feet, sensitivities, and tastes are different. It's great that we finally have so many shoes from which to choose!

    Assuming your toes fit in the dang things... Mine don't so they are some of the worst minimalist shoes for me. They give me top of the foot pain because my toes don't fit like they should and are not allowed to move correctly.

    Yes very true, I am lucky in that aspect. I even have Mortons Toe and they fit fine.

    Once I thought VFFs were the cat's ass. Now...I can't wear them anymore. None of my four pairs fit and the toe pockets seem too confining (arbitrarily spacing my toes and inhibiting their movement).

    The best minimalist shoe is the one that works for you.
