For all those minimalist fans out there! We were intrigued to try out this offering from Tanloop as we don't normally head down the road of "barefoot" shoes, but we're all about giving everything a shot too, so we were pretty keen to see how these held up.

The first thing you'll notice about these Tanloop Trail Running Shoes is they are, as they're designed to be, very minimal. There is always a sweet spot where less is more, but sometimes less can just be, well, less. We certainly couldn't fault them for comfort with the snug fitting "sock" upper that nicely wraps around your foot, we also really liked the elastic lace system, similar to the "Quicklace" system used by Salomon.

Where we found these shoes to be a little underdone was in the protection department, now we are very aware these are a minimalist shoe but when it comes to trails, injuries are not hard to pick up if you don't have the necessary precautions underfoot, and we found these to be that way inclined when it came to some of the more aggressive terrains where we absolutely felt each and every step - not exactly in a good way. Of course there are horses for courses and if nice flat, easy trails are your thing then these certainly have some advantages: very comfortable, super lightweight, with a great natural feeling.

As these are unisex you will need to be careful with sizing, but once you get this right you can be sure you will achieve a great natural feeling shoe, just be mindful of trying to take on rough terrain or you might wish you had something a bit more substantial underfoot. Definitely a time and a place for these great looking shoes, just choose that time and place carefully!
