Still a debate going on. I guess everybody has to find his/her personal mix that fits!
Since the invention of the modern running shoe by Nike in the 80s, hobby runners like me heard the same for decades: Cushioning is very important, you should land on your heel and roll over your foot to the toes.

My Vivo Gobis are a daily wear item here in the Pacific NW. I have the Tobacco Finish and they still look great after a year of soakings. Plus they keep my feet dry.

No problem. They don't even ask to remove them. Same as barebottom shoes, flip flops, etc.

Made myself a pair of flip flops for the few businesses that still require footwear.

Just a follow up. The pair had holes on the pads of my feet in under 40 km. Quite disappointed.

The great thing about the xeros is the sound feedback you get too.

For every study showing that minimalist shoes change your stride, reduce your impact forces, or lower your injury risk, there’s another showing the opposite.
