Just thought of something.
I own 7 pair of running shoes now.
And I run barefoot...
My huaraches were by FAR the cheapest of the group, and they probably have the most miles (maybe 50?) followed in a close second, maybe even a tie, with the Merrell Trail Gloves.
I also own some Merrell Sonic Gloves that have about 4 miles on them, and a pair of all black suede Merrell slip ons that are also from their barefoot line that my wife got me for an early Christmas present. I haven't ran in them, and probably won't.
I have 2 pair of Vibrams now. The original pair were the KSO, and I did not like them. They have maybe 20 miles on them. I just bought a set of the SeeYa LS Vibrams. These feel and look like what a Vibram SHOULD be. Extremely light weight. Very thin soled, flexible, breathable and just all around cool looking! I got them this weekend, so they have yet to see any miles, but I feel like they will get lots of use come the hot months of the year.
There's also the New Balance Minimus something another's that I got from Jason Robillard. I think I put about 5 miles on them and didn't like them.
So.... Why do I own so many minimalist running shoes
I wear them when I'm not running. I wish I could get some minimalist steel toe work boots, that would be great!
