Freeheel Runningpads: Ordering

I like barefoot and minimalist running shoes, but the ones I’ve tried feel too constrictive. What’s the very least I can get away with?

Freeheel Runningpads: Ordering

The Freeheel Runningpads are “running reduced to the most necessary,” according to the Germenglish in the small leather goods manufacturer's brochure. It goes on to say, "This idea of naturalness, reduction, and sustainability is fully committed to the continued choice of materials and fabrication routes."

It sounded good to us. To order the shoes, you have to put a piece of a paper on the floor, then trace around your foot, as I did above. Old-school.
