Barefoot meets trail-worthy. These lightweight training shoes combine the benefits of a barefoot running platform with the sturdier protection of a trail shoe.
- Uppers are a thin, synthetic material featuring a welded, no-sew construction.
- Anti-microbial treatment.
- Midsoles use lightweight, low-profile ACTEVA® foam with elastomer. This combination offers the muscle-strengthening benefits of a minimalist barefoot training shoe with cushioning and protection for comfortable trail use.
- Platform drop is 0mm.
- Low-profile Vibram® outsoles provide grip without contributing extra weight or bulk.

Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|5.5 - 5.5mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
