Although we didn’t do much running on our honeymoon (ok, if we’re being truthful, any running), that doesn’t mean we left our minimalist shoe lifestyle behind. As excited as Steven and I were to explore the country of Costa Rica for the first time, we were also looking forward to spending an entire vacation in only minimalist shoes (and barefoot)! As … Read More

It was truly a paradise.  There we sat at the beachside bar in beautiful Waikiki, fruity drinks in hand as we watched the sun slowly melt into the sea.  You could hear the waves gently crashing on shore nearby as ukulele music wafted along with the warm tropical breeze.  It couldn’t get any better than this.  Then I looked down … Read More

I have sweaty feet. There, I said it. I know, it’s gross, but up until last July, it hasn’t been too much of an issue for me. However, it, along with the fact that my feet are prone to blistering, created a real problem for me when I made the switch to minimalist footwear. Make me run for more than … Read More

Minimalist Shoes

Over the last few weeks, we have encountered a few items that I thought were worth mentioning.  More specifically, shoes–some of which we have plans to review, others that we were only able to get a short period of time with, but would love to get our hands on for a more thorough review in the future.  I’m not sure … Read More
