Men's Barefoot Running Shoes
Looking to run in a new direction? Barefoot running might be your answer. Barefoot running shoes are designed to increase strength, speed, and reduce risk of injuries while helping you achieve your optimal running stride. Advocates of barefoot running strongly believe the "less is more" philosophy. The aim of barefoot running shoes is to mimic the feeling of running barefoot and allow your feet, ankles and legs to work the way they were naturally designed. In general barefoot running shoes have a flatter profile (lower heel-to-toe drop) encouraging you to land on your forefoot and dramatically decrease the force of impact. You'll get better body alignment, a more efficient stride, stronger feet and legs, and more fun runs!
For your most natural, stripped down running experience, choose Barefoot Ride shoes. These are the most minimal of barefoot running shoes putting as little as possible between your foot and the ground. With a heel-to-toe drop of 4mm or less these shoes are the closest thing to running completely barefoot (but, WAY more comfortable).
Looking for a tad more cushioning, but still want that natural feeling? Choose from our selection of Minimalist Ride shoes. These low-profile minimalist running shoes serve up a slightly higher heel-to-toe drop (4 to 7mm) than Barefoot Ride shoes, but still allow your feet to move and flex naturally so your body remains in-tune with the ground.
Want an easy transition into the whole barefoot running thing? Take a look at our super selection of Lightweight Ride running shoes. Perfect for race days and tempo training runs, these feathery, lightweight running shoes offer you the familiar feel of the standard heel-to-toe drop you find in more traditional running shoes (7mm and above). You'll generally get a little more cushioning than a minimalist running shoe or barefoot running shoe, but you'll speed up your run thanks to lighter materials than those found in traditional running shoes.
