Welcome to the Smartwool Women's Hike Light Crew Women's Socks, which is one of our choices in our wide range of premium running shoes for men and ladies. This type of running shoe is perfect for you if you're trying to find the closest thing to running without shoes, while benefitting from appropriate defence for your feet. Within the minimalist running shoe classification, you have a range of choices. The most minimal of our barefoot running shoes fit like a 2nd skin. Your toes can all move individually. Then there's a half-way house: those running shoes that are in the middle between running without any shoes at all and a typical cushioned shoe. You'll feel nearer to the ground than you do in regular running shoe, with less of a drop from the heel to the forefoot. That is a feature that will encourage you to land more on the midfoot and forefoot. But, in addition, you'll have a fair quantity of cushioning.
