The Evoskin Silicone Shoe by Inov-8 may just be the strangest pair of runners you've ever seen. These unique shoes are designed for runners who want to have a more natural experience when running.

The Evoskin by Inov-8 is the closest thing to running barefoot. The silicone shoe features individual toe slots so you can even wiggle your toes around as you run. Since the shoes features little to no padding it is ideal for running in soft terrain: trails, grass, sand, etc. It may make your feet pretty sore if you tried it on pavement.

When it comes to looks wise the Evoskin by Inov-8 may turn heads, but it seems as if those who are going to buy a pair will use it strictly for training purposes.
