First things first. Don't read any other persons response till you have posted your own.
I have been thinking about what qualities and characteristics make a shoe be qualified as minimalist. I feel like if you ask 10 people you will get 10 different answers.
So here is my questions for you:
First question: What is your definition (in your own words) of what a minimalist shoe is?
Second question: What are the the characteristics of a minimalist shoe? (List them)
Third question: Out of the characteristics you named which ones are the most important for you?
Fourth question: Do you think a minimalist shoe has to have all the characteristics you mentioned, most of them, or just a few in order to qualify as a minimalist shoe?
Remember try not to read anyone's response till you post yours. I don't want to have anyone else answers affect what you might write. Thanks for taking the time to answer. Once you anwser feel free to read everyone's response. You can compare yours to others and see how similar or different your answers are.
