The objective of minimalist sandals is to offer an experience that closely resembles moving barefoot. Thus the end goal is thinner zero drop soles that maximize proprioception while offering a wide toe area that allows the toes to splay out naturally. As runners around the world have liberated their feet of conventional foot-coffins they have developed superior lower body strength with an increased resilience to fatigue and injury. #FreeYourFeet  Photo via @the_winged_ling
