Inov-8 Evoskin

More and more in the shoe industry are coming out with products that cater to barefoot/minimalist runners.  Inov-8, makers of off-road running shoes, also joined the barefoot bandwagon and gives us Evoskin.  It wasn't immediately accepted when the prototype came out.  A lot of the questions revolve on how it will handle sweaty feet.  Some even said, its a rip-off from VFF's design.  It also got snickered.  I mean just take a good look at 'em.  You'll know what I mean

If sweaty (and stinky) feet isn't part of your vocabulary, this babies (in my opinion) will give you the best ground feedback you'd ever get from a minimalist footwear and could potentially be one of the best if not the best

Before it hit the shelves, see a glimpse on how it'll look like on your feet

Inov-8 Evoskin will come in two colors: SMOKE and BLUE

Since it is still in development phase, I am expecting that Inov-8 will address the breathability issues.  At 3.5 ounces each, this is something worth looking forward to.  It is expected to come out in summer of next year and will retail around $60.
