If you’re looking to buy a minimal shoe you have a few different options. The most minimal of them all fit like a second skin, allow your 10 toes to move independently, but protect your feet from the ground for the completely barefoot experience. If you’re nervous of going that far there are shoes halfway between barefoot and a regular cushioned shoe. They allow to be closer to the ground than in an ordinary running shoe but still have a bit of cushioning and there is less of a drop from the heel to the forefoot which encourages you to land more on the midfoot and forefoot. Generally the sizing is different to your average running shoe since you want the shoes to be nice and snug. Most people find it important to try on different models from different companies to see what fits them best, when making the transition to barefoot or minimalistic running.
