The road to barefoot running is best started in Inov-8's Road-X 255 running shoes. Why? Because you don't want to shock your feet by going from lots of cushioning to no cushioning. They offer a low-profile ride, but start you off with a 9mm drop differential and plenty of underfoot protection. And the best part: DFB technology which replicates the foot's plantar fascia ligament... whatever that is...
