How to transition into barefoot running shoes - 5 tips
Five shoes to get you barefoot running
Nike Free 3.0
If you're not ready to give up entirely on the cushioning, the Nike Free 3.0 are a brilliant way to make the transition. They feel more like conventional runners with decent upper protection, but are still super light and great for your first baby steps into barefoot territory.
After the Vibrams, these are the second craziest-looking lightweight shoes. On the outside, they're a bit like Crocs with a protective honeycomb outer, and inside there's a super-comfy slipper that keeps your feet warm and safe. The puncture resistant sole is a great confidence booster on inner city streets.

So light and flexible you can roll them up and tuck them easily into a tiny Camelback running bag, these Saucony's give you the full barefoot experience. Perfect if you want to change your footwear during your workout, but don't want to lug loads of kit around. Unlike some barefoot newcomers, they also look fairly normal.
New Balance Minimus Trail
Carefully crafted to help you build up a mid-foot strike rather than slamming down on your heels and sending impact straight to your knees the Vibram-powered Minimus come minus the sole insert. You can really feel the ground beneath your feet, but not the stones. They do lack a bit of grip in the wet on concrete, but handle the trails with aplomb.
