blaming my high school track coach I've been dependent on orthodics in my running shoes since I was 16. I'm a little skeptical of the barefoot running trend that's getting big right now but I recently began working out at home and have been going barefoot there without any hip problems. I had a minor knee issue about a week ago after a run but not sure what that's related to. Got adjusted last week and tried a 4 mile run this weekend, so hopefully I was just outta whack. But I'm willing to see if this barefoot thing can work for me in some way. My compromised strategy is to wear my Nikes for running days and these babies for non-running workouts.
I was finally able to find a store ( Rusted Moon ) here that sold VFFs. I opted for the KSO model. They'll get their maiden voyage tomorrow night at Body Pump. I'm sure I'll get some strange looks at the gym in these.
