Are barefeet running shoes any different from casual shoes?

.I have a wornout-ish pair of vans that i run in. it feels decent and i can definitely feel grass patches. is there any point of buying running shoes that give you a "barefoot like feel" im asking this because i want to buy a pair of nike flex 2013 running shoes.

Details:

  1. well first of vans are a terrible idea to run in because the little to no support and can cause injury. a running shoe like the Nike flex have more support but I still wouldn't recommend those shoes. I would recommend getting fitted for a shoe that would best suit you. Although a running shoe I would recommend is mizuno :)
  2. Only in that they look about 5 times stupider than just going barefoot, and at least 10 times as stupid as just about anything else you can put on your feet, even if you're a clown.
