Dress Shoes with a Barefoot design
I am looking for dress shoes which follow a barefoot model design like converse but dress shoes. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Sanuk Rogue is a decently presentable dress shoe, aside from the garish sole color.

thats funny i have the same pair.

highly recommend these too.

one thing i would say about terra plana is get on the mailing list or email them and try to buy when they have an online sale.. not uncommon to get 15-30% off periodically..

+1. I got mine at 50% off with an email "sale" coupon.

The Asics Tai Chi is a nice one, but a it leans a bit to the casual side. It's white leather with black swooshes on the side. The fit is long and narrow. Very soft sole; you can easily bend it either way to make the toes touch the heel. Costs about $75 and can be found on, I think.

I have the vivobarefoot Dharma's:

They're definitely good quality shoes. I highly recommend them. Definitely look for coupons. There are often coupons listed on In fact there is a $50 off coupon listed on there today, that expires today.

Jump on it!

Wow that is a hell of a does the sizing go?

I typically have to get larger in Nike Free's than my "regular" size and then in Vibrams I'm way smaller.

I wear the same size in Vivo's as I do with my OL shoes (so I'd say go smaller/snugger).
