Thick-soled shoes have coddled your feet far too long. The proof of weakened muscles and ligaments? Try running barefoot. Skinners Shoes are probably closer to socks than shoes, but still offer enough protection to guard your feet from succumbing to adverse terrain. They’re hand-made in Europe and boast a durable dual coating of an anti-abrasive polymer underneath that’s affixed to antimicrobial fibre. Admittedly, working up to being able to run a few miles with this style shoe might take awhile, but they’re handy for a multitude of uses since they roll up tiny and are ideal for bringing along as an extra pair of shoes that you can shove in your pocket.
