Aside from water shoes are there any barefoot style shoes that dont have the toe pockets and just have a toe box if you will? When i have tried on the five fingers the toe pockets allways bothered me and that was one reason i went with the body glove "seek" even though the quality is not the same?

For work i usually wear new balance 801 clogs, not every employer will allow that though, fine for women to wear clogs but a guy they wont allow  Angry

in oil they would stain but they do make a version in black, not exactly a barefoot shoe but the feeling of fresh air on my heels and great

one place I worked at has a 1 mile mixed Terran and the company had a contest on how many laps you do in a set amount times, I always had  point at me and look at my feet because i did the rocky parts in flipflops and other sections barefoot, at brake time i would go out to my car kick off my clogs and get the flipflops on and start my run, they must have thought i was crazy, out of maby 30-40 people only 3 completed the amount of rounds including me. even though i dont have that stamina to do it any more but i still kick the shoes off, when i go hiking at my favorite spots.

One time I went down the bight angel trail at the grand canyon in cheap boat shoes, the trail was rocky and the idea of mule pee on the trail was also an incentive

Hello, i found this forum looking for more info on minnetonka moccs the different open styles, not sure on what i want to get for my next pair.
One main reason i am into the minimalist shoes is i have autism and anything tight drive me nuts and shoes being the main annoyance, i usually just wear deck or boat shoes and flipflops/thong sandals all other times, Then the Nike free for work or the new balance 801 clogs for the winter. i avoid boots at almost all costs. Since i cant currently afford the Vibram line at this time i use body glove's Seek line as a sub

Buy anyway it's great to be here
thanks

Hello, this is my first post and i hope i got it in the right area.
I was wondering what the difference there is between Mocc's made from leather, moose or deer hide? I have https://www.minnetonkamoccasin.com/men/styles/moccasins/double-bottom-softsole/

but may switch to a different type of leather, I was wondering how they feel and how they wear in. The types i would get are the double bottom with no rubber sole as i want it to be as close to barefoot as possible, with that style.

There is no one local to me that i can find and test drive a pair.

Thanks

What about the newer Trek Ascent, or some of the mudrunner shoes?

I think you can eliminate the Classics, KSOs and the Trek/Treksports. They perform very badly on wet rocks.

Spyridon might work. Is it a sandy or pebbly beach?

Vibram VFF/ Minimal shoes: Rocky Wet Waterfall/ Beach with slippery moss algae?

 - Walk/ hike Wet rocks with green algae/ moss: Waterfall areas, on/ near Streams, Rocky beaches?

I am new to this so I am wondering:

- Traction/ Grip + what kind of foot | ground separation thickness would be best?

Suggestions? Recommendations?

I'll second the original KSO.  You may be able to find the older model TrekSports as well, they'd be wee suited for everything.

If you have tougher feet, the KSO EVO may work too.  I'm perfectly comfortable walking miles on rocks with a thin soled pair, but many are not.

Signas are very very floppy. I wouldn't recommend them for use on dry land.

If you can find some old-style KSOs they're good for casual use.

Your first three uses are OK for the Signa.

Your second three uses are definitely NOT OK for the Signa.

I've been travelling round in KSOs this week, as driver and passenger in car and walking in towns. However, for a ten mile walk over a wet gravel trail and a sand beach, I used proper hiking boots.
