This might be the best review ever on birthdayshoes.com! I highly recommend the GW81 for hiking in the ales when the temperature is 10ºC or above. Short stins in snow i.e. a few meters in between dirt/grass/rocks/etc can be done if your tolerance to pain is high!

As much as I love your GW81 I think I'll stay with my AR70, they're already 43 years old but still very comfortable

I hoped he would recommend how often to run/walk barefoot as I have tried to do this in the past. Also, how much slower is running without minimalist shoes?

Cute article, but ultimately, I think the disadvantages of going fully barefoot are far greater than the advantages (as compared to a nice thin barefoot-style shoe). To each his own though.

Seeing how many college students play Football/Frisbee barefoot, it must not change the sprinting capability much.

I have received the AF32's seventeen years ago now, and they have fit their purpose greatly, they are the ultimate attire. want to go swimming? no problem. Want to go take hike? no problem. Want to play on the beach? NO PROBLEM!! This pseudo-shoe is perfect!

I've been running in Vibrams for about 3 years now and have been thinking about going barefoot but I run at 4am in the dark on a busy city street, I'm afraid of cutting my feet on glass or other shard debris. After reading this I think I might just make it a weekend thing since I run in the day light on weekends.

I applaud you for doing the experiment that I have always wanted to try--literally discard my shoes for several months and see how my feet/gait/health change over time. Unfortunately, I have never been able to accomplish this beyond a week of summer vacation or the occasional weekend. Have you noticed any changes to your feet? Based on the sole pic, your feet seem to be remarkably wide at the forefoot area, and I wonder if this width has increased even slightly over the past few months (like the pics in the article posted prior to yours). Great job!
