A barefoot runner provides an in-depth review of running with the Sockwa G2.
As a barefoot/minimalist runner, I run over 85% of my miles barefoot. I am very particular about any “shoes” that I wear for a run. In extreme weather (hot or cold), I will run in huaraches. For very rugged trails or gravel levees I might wear Vibram KSOs. The Sockwa G2 offers something in-between.
When the Sockwa G2s arrived from the company for testing, my first thought was that they were basically water shoes. One of my co-workers that I train with runs in water shoes. Her shoes and the ones I examined in the local mega-store have fairly thick, inflexible soles. Water shoes are difficult to fold in half. The Sockwas can be rolled into a small tube. There is also a noticeable weight difference.
