One of the most common questions on my YouTube channel is "what shoes are you wearing?" I like to keep my shoes protective but minimalist! Here are minimalist shoe brands I actually wear (or someone in my family does).
Outdoorsy style with a slightly thicker, more forgiving and flexible sole. The wide toe box is great and the sole is well-suited for walking on harder surfaces (like concrete) for long periods.
If you want the absolute thinnest shoe sole in a modern, sleek style, check out VIVOBAREFOOT. They have athletic, casual, and more formal styles for men and women - all with extremely thin soles.
Made in America with a very Pacific Northwest style and SUPER comfortable wide toe boxes. Choose sole thicknesses to suit your needs. They also have some decent women's casual styles and comfy kids leather moccasins!
I really love the Z-trek and Genesis sandals. My friend Mitch likes the DayLite Hikers.
Toe boxes on these shoes tend to be a little narrower than on Vivos, Lems, and Softstar.
Barefoot style shoes for kids that are affordable and easy to put on and take off!
My son LOVES these shoes. For style, function, and affordability, these are tops for kids' barefoot style shoes.
Men's dress shoes with zero drop? Want minimalist mens dress shoes that actually look like dress shoes? They were impossible to find until Carets.
When I have to wear dress shoes, I wear Carets.
