People “Want It All” When Choosing Their Most Important Feature for Today’s Minimalist Shoe

Posted by Nicole Perry on Thursday, November 24th, 2011 | No Comments »

It may be called a “minimalist shoe” but our poll results show that today’s minimalist shoe must contain innovative features and benefits such as protection from the elements, elastic support, thin cushioning, and uncompromising room for the toes…yet still remain stylish. 

605 people responded to our recent poll:

 “What is the most important thing you look for in a minimalist shoe?”

Although “Protection from the elements” landed at number two, “All of the Above” was the overall big winner.  That’s a tall order to handle, but we know of one brand who is making strides in this ever growing market!


We would like to thank our friends at Nimbletoes® for offering a free pair of Nimbletoes® footwear with PORON® XRD™  Technology to the lucky winner.  If you would like additional information on the various Nimbletoes® footwear available for your particular needs…check out their website!  You can even order them directly from Joe Nimble himself. 


Hint: For those who haven’t caught up on your German lately, check out our Q&A with Joe Nimble  for additional product and company information, or you can e-mail the Nimbletoes® team from their website at (yes, English will be okay!)


‘Til next time!
