Of all the "minimal" shoes out there, the Altra Eve truly deserves the title. With only 4 mm of shoe under your foot and a 0 mm heel-to-toe drop, the only thing closer to being barefoot than this is, well, being barefoot. The Eve encourages a more forward footstrike and allows you to feel the ground every step of the way. True to its name, it's built with a women's-specific shape for an optimized fit in all the right places. Two removable insoles give you the option of adding a tad more protection or a bit of underfoot cushion.
