We've all heard that running barefoot might just be better for the body than wearing heavy running shoes, but it's not always feasible to run or desirable to run that way. A new foot-friendly solution can be found in the EVO performance shoe from Terra Plana. The shoe is a collaboration between Galahad Clark, owner of Terra Plana and Asher Clark, his cousin and head designer, both seventh generation shoemakers.
The EVO is designed to be like running barefoot but better. The minimalist running shoe weighs only eight ounces and has breathable mesh and lightweight micro fiber reinforcements. The soft rubber sole is just 4mm. The shoe comes in yellow, black, white, pink, blue and green and sells for $160.
