My step-dad really wants to try those but he doesn't want to spend his money on something that he may not like.


How d oyou like them? I don't know anyone who's ever used them except for well, you

So, I think they're the bee's knees. I used to run in a mid-range pair of Nike's but got shin splints and knee pain after just a few miles. When I switched to these, I ran 7 miles without really noticing. I had some calf pain the next few days but it was just muscles.

I'll never run, or even wear, regular shoes ever again. I wear them year round.

Now, my transition was super easy because:
I normally go barefoot.
I have a short, non-heel striking stride naturally.
I hadn't been running for that long before switching.

The transition is harder if you're older, have a longer stride, and have been running in shoes longer. But I still think it's a god idea seeing the results people in the community have when switching to them.

My friend's brother walked in with a pair of those shoes on...maybe the universe wants me to have those shoes...

Well! First, you must decide what you wish to do with them as each has merit in different relms. :). But! I know there is a store near where you live as I convinced a few nurses to go try some on last I was on site: we found I think five stores near the hospital within two states!

*ponders* I have what my friends like to call "monkey toes" though. : (

Morton's toe?

I have really long toes, and I can pick stuff up with them sometimes so they name them: "Monkey toes."
Would my toes be all cramped in those?
