    This type of shoes seems to be becoming more main stream with more and more people buying them for the perceived benefits of being “more natural”. 

    In my experience being an avid train running enthusiast, one needs to protect the foot from the uneven stones and rocks that are common to a train running conditions.  While the Whitin trail runners are listed as providing better protection, are they better than the FujiTrabuco series from Assics which I am accustomed to wearing or what are the major advantages?

      Hi, Rich and thank you.

      Yes, the popularity of this type of running shoes has been raising bot quick and much. But as I see it, it is great that there is now a lot of possibilities for a wide range of types of runners and different styles. But, because of that, it is vital to know or find out, what fits for you.

      About your question about the Asics GEL-FUJITRABUCO 7 trail running shoes (guess you have number 7 in mind, but generally it is not critical) vs. Whitin Men’s Minimalist Trail Runner.

      There is a big difference. Number one if you have been in a problem with injuries or foot problems I would use Asics GEL-FUJITRABUCO 7 trail running shoes rather than barefoot shoes.

      The Whitin Men’s Minimalist Trail Runner is lower and much lighter with good protection. On the other hand, the Asics GEL-FUJITRABUCO 7 is, probably, more comfortable for many runners. Too, it is heavier but has excellent support. So, in the end, the choice is a lot based on what style you like more, barefoot or not.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    Nice article. I personally have the within men’s trail and I can attest to the fact that the show is quite a comfortable foot wear. I’m not an athlete though but a student and I use and prefer these light sports shoes to go about my day to day activities that is includes a number of walks. How do you mean “different sizing schemes?

      Hi, Polycarp Momoh and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      This shoe is good for walking too. You get the barefoot feeling there also.

      What I had in mind with the different sizing schemes is that their sizing schemes are a little different from most brands.

    Awesome article. You have given the right guidance to choose right kind of shoes, as choosing shoes is a matter of great confusion among many. Products listed by you have a varying price range, anyone can choose as per their budget. 

    Personally for me., I’m glad that this post came across me at the right time. I was looking for better shoes. I’ll look into bit more detail on size and overall shipping and buy one for myself. 

    Thanks for sharing this review. BTW, which shoe do you personally use for yourself?  Which one is your personal favorite? Your answer may further help me making quick decision.

      Hi, Akshaysaxena and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Before I answer, you are right to mention, like I have done in so many posts, what we are all different, both in the sense that what shoes fit best for the body and too what we have in mind.

      I have been more in road running, but my favorite shoes have changed through time. Both Adidas and Under Armour fit my personality very well, and I like their style too. So I have used most shoes from these brands, even so, I have used other brands also throughout the year. I can mention brands like Nike, Puma, and Mizuno.

      At the moment I used this par most, used this Amazon post so you can see all information about it.

      Good luck.

    I am a regular jogger and I find this article interesting. For me comfortability is everything when it comes to shoes and my choice would be the Whitin Men’s Minimalist Trail Runner shoe. It looks well balanced for me.  However I jog with my little cousins, so isn’t there shoes of smaller sizes of these types?

    Cheers.

      Hi, Sammy and thank you.

      Thank you for your kind words.

      About your cousins, I´m sorry, but eight is the smallest. There are barefoot running shoes for kids on the market, but I don´t want to recommend one on this time because I have not researched it as much as I want. I don´t want to suggest things before I have researched it wll enough to decide if I can recommend it or not.

      Good luck.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.

    It’s always important to make sure our feet are as comfortable as possible when we go out to jog or run. Developing blisters on your feet because, you wore the wrong shoe is really not pleasant. I like the minimalist running shoe because, it allows a lot of space for my toes. If it really feels as comfortable as being barefoot, then it’s fantastic! 

    I quite agree with you, the Joomra Minimalist Trail Running Barefoot Shoes stands out because of it style, and it’s price is one that is also budget friendly. Thanks for sharing, warm regards
