Less is more, so we've heard.

In today's race to supply the lightest kick on the market, you can expect to find a 'minimal' shoe from almost every major footwear brand. As a profitable successor to the barefoot trend, the minimal running shoe abandoned the radical medical assumptions and dreaded toe-separated uppers to reveal a product that appeals to the mass market. As technology continues to evolve, brands are pushing to develop original ways to test the limits of sport by reaching into virtually every category in order to provide athletes with the best equipment possible.

Choosing just the right pair of shoes can get real overwhelming real fast. So, to help, Sneaker Report has compiled a list of lightweight footwear options that cater to the minimal runner. Take a look.
