Runner's World Awards: Best Debut
This new minimalist shoe is one of the lightest we've ever reviewed. It doesn't have any stiff plastic to weigh it down, just squishy foam underfoot and just enough material on top to hold down the foot. It's also a low rider, bringing the heel close to the ground and creating a steady transition to toe-off. Make no bones about it, the shoe offers very little impact protection. That's why we recommend it for efficient runners who want to ease barefoot-like training into their routine. Available June 1.
