Friend and fellow minimalist runner Damien Tougas of the Adventure in Progress blog has just put up an interesting new site/social network for shoe fanatics. Called Toe Salad (named by his daughter), the site features reviews and information centered around every manner of minimalist running shoe. Here’s how Damien describes the site:
“After writing about minimalist footwear for the last couple of years on ADVENTUREinPROGRESS, I thought it was time to create a minimalist footwear community site. A place where everyone could share with others their minimalist footwear stories, experiences, reviews, links, and photos. A place to learn, ask questions, and find out what works and what doesn’t in the real world.
What makes this site different than other community sites is that it is centered around a directory of products. What better way to discuss the finer points of a particular product than to do it on a page dedicated to that product. It is my hope that by structuring the site in this way, it will be easier for people to find the valuable information they are looking for. This concept is still in its infancy here. If you have any suggestions as to how we might be able to improve the user experience, please leave your comments in the suggestions forum.“
