Have you guys seen these shoes? I am a bit interested. Here I am researching "barefoot running" and thinking to my self, "this is crazy"! Aren't they so strange looking?
But I am so intrigued! I have been a runner for 15 years. It makes me so happy to run, but in those 15 years I have never found a pair of running shoes that make me feel like I am running on air. One pair gave me a stress fracture in college. One pair hurt my hip. Another gave me pains in my left knee.
About 8 years ago I discovered the little specialty running stores where you go and get your foot and gait analyzed and they fit you for the correct shoe. I love, love, love, getting new running shoes, but still they never feel quite right. Well, my poor running shoes are due to retire this month and I need to find a replacement.
Have you heard anything about these? They are getting great reviews!
I just might have to give them a try. The idea of running almost barefoot sounds so wonderful to me...like being 5 again without a care in the world.
