Inov-8 Evoskin Barefoot Shoes

Inov-8 Evoskins

I'm amazed at how much the new Inov-8 Evoskin shoes look like the widely popular Vibram FiveFingers line of minimal/barefoot running shoes.  I guess it was only a matter of time before another company grasped upon a clever idea. Evoskin shoes are not currently available and won't be on the market until the summer of 2011.  It will be interesting to see which other manufacturers start showing an interest in the "barefoot" style of shoes.

Connect with the earth and experience a freedom that was previously the reserve of barefoot purists. With only a single layer of silicon between your foot and the ground the Evoskin behaves like a second skin, protecting the foot but allowing you to feel the motion of running like never before.

With added health benefits, incorporating the Evoskin in to your training program will help strengthen your foot muscles. For maximum proprioception feedback and gecko like grip, the Evoskin is ideal for a range of activities including water sports, treadmill workouts and barefoot training sessions.
