A friend of mine has a pair of the original GoBionic shoes. I really liked this shoe because unlike almost all other running shoes that are "loud" and obnoxious with respect to colors/design the GoBionic was "quiet" and reserved. Just a plain black and white looking shoe. Very nice. I wanted to buy a pair of these for casual wear, but they are not for sale anymore. Can anyone recommend something similar? I want the "minimalist" feature-set but with a "quiet" design: no bright colors, no flashy appearance, no reflectors. Something that has running features like an extra eyelet and flexible design but that looks more like a drab skateboarding shoe than the typical bright running shoe.
I don't like the GoBionic two version cause it is not zero-drop and it has a reflector and it only comes in bright colors.
How come the "minimalist" shoes always have to look bright, outlandish, and "loud" and be intended for running? What about a shoe for non-runners who skateboard or walk and want a minimalist shoe to wear casually?
