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.
You might want to check out Vivos. They're a bit pricey but they are the most passable shoe I can find for your purposes. http://www.vivobarefoot.com/us/mens/ra-40.html Personally, I have to wear a suit to work and haven't found anything I can quite pull of with that, but I think these would do for a business causal workplace just fine.
TOMs are grossly overpriced. You can buy the same shoes in Chinatown for $5. And they're cause is not great, IMHO. "Poor" people don't need overpriced pieces of canvas to cover their feet anymore than rich people do.
I love my toms. I want to marry them. I work out in them, and I can wear them with my dressier casual clothing as well. Though they support me in many aspect of my daily activities, their built in insole actually does not provide much "support", if at all. I find them super minimalistic in construction.

Toms have the description of the insole, but honestly there is no support in the shoe. But, they are extremely comfortable, light, and go with anything. I would say give them a try, because they really act like a minimal shoe.
I actually found some $50 dr scholl's minimalist shoes at dsw. They're women's and meant to look converse-like, but serve me well for casual Fridays and out-running-errands. They have a bit of a gel insert, which I don't mind because i'm mostly on concrete or tile, but its removable. I'm not sure if they have a wear-to-work/dressy version, but it might be worth checking out their website.
Tom's shoes is quite a good choice. As for me, I often wear this kind of shoes for wearing at work and other formal events. http://www.upere.com/upere-wedge-sneakers-c-1.html
