Going to find a shop localish to try on the vivobarefoot, however one question what socks do you guys wear with these? I'll need to get a pair or two before i go and test fit the shoes
I wear the Ra's for work
Great shoes and look fairly smart
I had a pair of 5 fingers but as I have the beginnings of hallux Valgus (bunions ;-) ) I found that they just weren't for me! I tried a couple of different types but no good for me! My brother has a few different Vivobarefoot shoes! Including these that he got for our trip to Galloway forest next week
I like the look of the huaraches! Might have to have a go as the bunions are no probs with those bad boys!
I started mid-foot running in lower heel drop shoes in January. I initially had a lot of calf stiffness and I did presumably go at it too hard (although I tried not to) because I've been suffering with various calf problems (strains and possibly a tear) since about April. I wear low to zero heel drop footwear most of the time and I'm currently trying to loosen and strengthen my calves in preparation for returning to running... When I do I'll be looking for some low-heeled off-road shoes.
It might be worth finding a barefoot running teacher. Apparently it is very much slow and steady to start with however someone pointing the way makes live easier. Just read Born to Run and wondering if this approach could get me running so if you find one please post a link.
