These are comfortable lightweight shoes. I've been using them for cross training and the gym and the grip is great, while the breathability keeps your feet from getting too hot.

Good minimalist shoes

Shoes are extremely roomy in the toe box which I prefer because I have wide feet. Probably not for you if you have narrow feet. High arch and limited support with a grippy sole make it a nice shoe if you're looking for less bulk.
