Dr. William Rossi in a 1999 article in Podiatry Management said it best with regards to going barefoot :

Wise ManIt took 4 million years to develop our unique human foot and our consequent distinctive form of walk, a remarkable feat of bioengineering. Yet, in only a few thousand years, and with one carelessly designed instrument, our shoes, we have warped the pure anatomical form of human walk, obstructing its engineering efficiency, afflicting it with strains and stresses and denying it its natural grace of form and ease of movement head to foot.

GoLite shoes have been designed with much flexibility and comfort. It even features fine tuning capabilities that allow you to alter the shape to the exact contours of your heel. This freedom simulates the experience of running and walking barefoot and ultimately lead you to perform better.
