|His and Hers Barefoot Shoes|
Merrell Barefoot shoes. These have no pad in the bottom for cushion, so it feels like you're barefoot, without the risk of stepping on something sharp. They're meant as a running shoe to build up muscles in your feet that should be there if we weren't so dependent on supportive shoes. It makes you run more forward because it hurts to land on your heel with no cushion, so I usually land flat or towards the front of my feet. I usually demand arch support and I have had no problems with these. They will make you sore below your big calf muscle when you run, though! They also make trail running quite interesting because you can feel every little pebble. Dave and I both have a pair, but so do the majority of our friends (one of them actually runs barefoot for real!)

|Merrell hiking shoes|
Merrel hiking shoes. I think Dave recently switched to Patagonia, but this is my second pair of Merrells and although I'm not sure these are sold as hiking shoes, they give me everything I need on a hike, although I've really given them some discoloration from Utah hiking.
Any types/brands of shoes you find you and your friends all seem to wear?
