Things have been so busy lately, so I've got a number of reviews of some great products backed up. Today I'm finally getting to a review of a really great shoe. And to quote my wife.."Wow... you actually have some minimalist shoes that don't look goofy!!"
The shoes she was talking about? The shoe from Leming Footwear (formerly Stem Footwear). And I have to say, these are some of the most comfortable minimalist shoes I've worn. Leming (which is short for Level & Flat, Extra wide toe box, and Minimal design), has created a super comfortable, casual shoe for those of us that can never return to a lifted heel, over cushioned shoe.
While these shoes weren't specifically designed as a running shoe, I did take a short run in them just to get a feel. They performed well, and were really comfortable... BUT.. the whole time I was worried about getting them too dirty... lol. Since that time, these have become my "go to" shoe for every day wear. They look great, and I love the wide toe box, light weight, and great proprioception that comes from a super flexible shoe.

For you minimalist shoe folks out there... what is your favorite casual shoe? Besides barefoot of course :-) Let me know!
