Summer is here and barefoot style hiking and walking boots are now widely available. But there are only three that warrant your attention. The top three barefoot style hiking boots as determined by Wear Tested for 2013 are: LEMs Boulder Boot, Merrell Proterra Sport, and VIVOBAREFOOT Synth Hiker. This new breed of hiking boots are lighter, softer, lower to the ground (4mm to 0mm differential), and has less protection. It provides excellent ground feedback for better balance, flexibility for natural movement, and all round comfort. And they work equally cheap jerseys well on asphalt, concrete, and trails. Although they are designed for hiking and walking, you can run in them but I only recommend short distances.
Before you go on your vacation this Summer, remember to check out these new lightweight and natural boots for your next outdoor adventure.
Merrell Proterra is a brand new multi hike collection cheap nfl jerseys that innovates with an agile approach to a traditional hiking product. The design combines Merrell's heritage performance with Merrell Barefoot experiences for fast, breathable and durable hiking shoes and boots.
Proterra is built on a 4mm platform and has been demonstrated to improve a person's stability through an outsole that enhances contact with the ground with a patent pending upper that uses Stratafuse technology. Stratafuse injects the foot cage into the mesh upper, fusing it together (without seams or stitching) for a lightweight fit, natural movement and incredible durability.
The Merrell Proterra is available in many colorways for both Men and Women in low cut (Men's Proterra Sport and Women's Proterra VIM Sport) and in mid cut (Men's Proterra Mid Sport and Women's Proterra VIM Mid Sport).

Weighing under 10 ounces and stack height of 9mm, the zero drop Boulder Boot is arguably the lightest boot in the world. The upper is made of water resistant nylon and full grain leather to keep away moisture. The whole boot is completely collapsible, great for stuffing into a pack during a hike and wearing around the campfire afterwards. There's absolutely nothing to this boot, no heel counter, no toe counter, no shank, and nothing stiff that would irritate the foot.
There is a removable 3mm insole or sockliner made of cheap nfl jerseys from china moisture wick foam. The boot also has a 100% cotton lining. If a barely there boot is what you're in need of, look no further.
