    I know of vibram and terra plana, do you guys know of any other manufacturers? There don't seem to be many people making these types of shoes

    Bought some nike free's a couple weeks ago, best shoes I've ever had. I recommend them before the vibrams. Baby steps. Going from giant corrective running shoes to vibrams or barefoot was too much for me.
