Subject:RE: barefoot runner seeks shoes
I got the MT10's over the VFF's b/c of the ease of putting them on, especially in transition. I didnt like the MR's They looked like a 'fake' sneaker and I didnt like the tread. The MT's use a vibram sole
I dont know if a shoe can make you faster, but I shaved :30 seconds a mile the first day I ran w/ them and didnt feel like I was pushing it either. Im not saying that it will happen for you too (I am a BOP runner) but I noticed a huge difference, and now down a full minute w/o feeling like I did anything different, I'm just able to run more 'naturally' I guess. But I've also been a fan of barefoot running for over 20 years. I hated running for practice but was able to enjoy it when it rained cause I would go barefoot and do my laps on the field. I didnt know or think it would become a fad cause I never really thought about it or how much more I enjoyed running barefoot until the discussion started. But I'm not complaining b/c it works for me and I feel like I now have more shoe options that suits my running style that I didnt have before.
