Barefoot in the SE

Hi everyone. I'm Chris from the SouthEast (currently outside Atlanta but relocating to Asheville). I have been in to minimalist footwear for a few years now and wear it almost exclusively. I'm a hiker, backpacker, and runner amongst other things, and know Damien through Backpacking Light. My current favorite minimalist shoes are a pair of Soft Star Roos with the T-Rex sole. I'm currently running in the Inov-8 F-Lite 240 and plan to use those for hiking/backpacking as well, but I'm really looking forward to trying out the Altra line.

Welcome Chris, thanks for stopping by. The Altra's are nice so far, and have that nice wide toebox you are looking for. I just heard that they are now taking pre-orders on their website for all models.

If you get a chance, I would love to see your review of the Roos. I haven't tried any of the Soft Star models yet.
