Hello all. New Guy from north Carolina. I am looking at which model shoe would be best for my needs.  I used to workout barefoot, and then put on some trainers when I did cardio. It seems my new gym will not allow barefeet. So it only seems natural for me to get some vff's so I can workout and do strenuous cardio all without changing. Problem is with all the different stylze out there, I'm baffled at what to buy.  Any suggestions?

I go barefoot, but my dog wears shoes.

Classics or KSos. These are the most minimalist and basic. I prefer classics because they're quicker to get on.

I'd have to agree with Hawkeye.  Although I don't lift weights myself, I have a lot of friends who do.  The few people I know seem to love the original soles (Classic, KSO, Sprints) for lifting weights.  This isn't saying that the others won't work just as well, though.  Justin just did a review of the Komodo's in which he seemed to love them for lifting.  Good luck choosing, and welcome!

Or, if you can find some of the MOCS, those would be great for lifting as well.  They're just as easy to get on as the Classics, plus they're made of leather and feel like you're wearing gloves on your feet.
