Lems Nine2Five Minimalist Shoes Review — $125 (9), BestLeather.org

Lems Nine2Five Coffee and Cream Shoes Review — $125

Like other bandwagoners, I became a fan of minimalist shoes after reading Born to Run.

NutSac Satchel Pro Review — $149

I’m a minimalist. The sort of guy who strives for less-is-more. For example, I use a tablet with a bluetooth keyboard as my main writing device.
