If you don't know Justin Owings, he's the owner of Birthdayshoes.com. He's the one that gets all the future VFF styles before everyone else. Read what he thinks of Stem Footwear: "Recently, Tim reviewed the men's Stem Footwear Primal Origins shoe. Tim's take was pretty positive and for good reason: Stem Footwear is manufacturing an exciting product that has been making waves in the "barefoot" or minimalist shoes movement for its comfort and overall foot friendliness. That they fit a niche of a foot-healthy shoe for casual wear (and even running for some), makes them all the more attractive for consideration as an addition to your min-shod closet...Stem is getting a good bit of press here on BirthdayShoes and while I've pointed out a few nits above in this review, my overall take on these shoes is glowingly positive: if you're looking for a casual mono-toed barefoot/minimalist shoe, the Stems are worth serious consideration."

I've been in touch with Justin Owings, founder of birthdayshoes.com since January 2011. His site arguably has the largest minimalist shoe follower base of the entire inter-webs. Back in May he did a review and youtube video of our prototypes. It was responsible for gathering much of our initial steam. About two months ago I sent Tim, one of his colleagues, one of our final production shoes. After several weeks of testing he released his impressions. Read it here birthdayshoes.com
