If you're trying to build your form and efficiency, and you want to try out barefoot running, the Inov-8 Road-X 238 Running Shoes are a good place to start. You can't just go straight from full-cushioned to barefoot, so you need a mid-way shoe like the 238 to help train your body. These shoes have a reduced heel-to-toe drop and a more natural feel, but they still have some cushioning and support. Put in your time training on the Inov-8 Road-X Shoes and you'll be able to more readily make the transition to barefoot.
