Top 5 Minimalist Shoes
No1. Camper Beetle, £155, www.camper.com
Providing a zero drop, wide toe box and a nice hug of the upper foot whilst allowing for maximal movement; plus enough style for most occasions. A shoe that feels better than most trainers.
No2. Vivobarefoot Motus, £110, www.vivobarefoot.com
Uber minimal footwear providing the best proprioceptive feedback to sole protection ratio out there. The added bonus is that the Motus is proving to be a touch more durable which helps.
No3. Luna Sandals, from £60, www.primallifestyle.com
Made using upcycled tires and a Vibram midsole, these sandals LAST and the JC look is definitely back!
No4. Innov-8 X-Talon 225, £80, www.wiggle.co.uk
For those who plan on moving through particularly rugged terrain and need that little extra grip the X-Talon works well under the wettest and harshest of conditions and is also good when balancing on wet tree branches!
No5. Barefoot, free, look down and spread those toes!
