Men's and Women's Minimalist Running Shoes
If you've gotten into or want to start “barefoot running”, you can find a large selection of minimalist running shoes for both men and women at City Sports. There are two kinds of minimalist shoes: the barefoot running shoe, and the minimalist running shoe.
The barefoot shoe is shaped like your foot, and has very little padding and bare minimum protection in the sole of the shoe. There's a “zero drop” from the heel to the toe, which encourages mid-foot or forefoot strike.
Minimalist shoes are a hybrid between the barefoot shoes and regular running shoes. They are extremely lightweight with little or no arch support, and it makes a great transition to the barefoot shoes if you're used to running with traditional running shoes.
Be sure to stop by any City Sports store to get expert help in choosing the right type of minimalist shoe based upon your gait and style. Talk to them about which running socks work best with your minimalist style, and get some running shorts to keep you in style.
