I've just recently converted to wearing five fingers, and I must find a dress casual shoe to wear at work and other formal events that is as minimal as possible. I don't need (and can't really afford to buy) 100 dollar minimalist running shoes; I'll just be standing/walking in them. They just need to pass the 'business/dress casual' qualification.
A few suggestions from other questions on this site got me looking at Tom's shoes, but on their website it says there is an insole and arch support insert. Anyone know if this can be removed? I would love to support their cause, and I'll only really consider dropping more than 50 bucks because they have such a good cause. Their black cord and burlap classic shoes seem to fit what I would call business casual.
I've thought about just using slippers, but they have such little durability, and many still have thick soles. I appreciate any other suggestions.
