The shoe provides the best ground for an absolute minimalist running experience while still offering protection for your feet when you take your running off-road.

The trail-friendly pad in the forefoot and the Vibram outsole offers the best traction, grip, and support, even on rough terrain or wet situations.

My name is Mick, and I'm a marathon runner and travel enthusiast from New York. I'm not a natural runner and have worked hard to cut my marathon time from 5.14 to 3.68. I'm currently chasing a Boston Qualifying time of sub 3.30. My blog shares my experiences of balancing marathon training, work and active travel adventures, plus advice specifically for runners. In a nutshell, I’m your average runner who is full of encouragement, motivation, running stories, and a lot of (both solicited and unsolicited) beginner fitness advice.
