ZEMgear 360 Round Toe Shoes - Women'sis rated5.0out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromLove this ShoeI really love this shoe. This is the closest you can get to barefoot running without actually taking your shoes off. I had been running in minimalist shoes for over a year, but when I put these on, I could feel a natural difference in my stride even beyond what I had already acquired through using other minimalist shoes. So much so, in fact, that after starting to use these I had to cut down my mileage a bit and build back up for about 2 weeks to allow my calf muscles time to recover and catch up. On the up side of that, that first run I did in these shoes was also my fastest yet for my 2 mile route. I didn't think about it or try for it, it just naturally happened that way. And I continue to run slightly faster times than I did in my formerly beloved Saucony Hattoris. These shoes also have a very thin sole, and I noticed that I can really feel the ground in a way that I do not with other minimalist shoes. Some of the things mentioned in the other reviews are true--there is a thick seam on the inside of the shoe, but the seam has not caused me any discomfort, rubbing, or blisters. I hardly notice it. If the shoes were just a half size smaller, however, I think that it might cause some issues. So correct sizing is important with these. It is also true that at first the shoe felt just a bit narrow, and this initially concerned me, but as I wore it, the shoes very naturally adjusted to my feet. Now that they are broken in, I wear them all the time and they feel great. They are also super easy to get on. Bottom line is that if you are looking for a really minimal minimalist shoe, then look no further.

Rated5out of5byfromLove My Zems!I love these shoes! I have been barefoot running with and without shoes for about 10 months now. I currently wear a variety of minimalist shoes for different purposes but to keep building the muscles in the my feat. These are by far the most minimal I have found and the most like barefoot! I also run in vibrams or new balance minims. I like these the best. Also I can't wait to use them for some Mud runs and my next Sprint Triathlon coming up because they are so easy to slip on! I am ordering some for my kids ASAP.
