Hey from VA. I found a good deal on the Vibram FF so I got 2 pair. One for running and one for regular wearing. Bikila LS for running and Speeds for causal wear. I do over pronate  but I am trying to correct it.

**Definitely plan to start out slow.

Welcome! Awesome choice for your first two pairs. Definitely start out slow and it will be very enjoyable.

Welcome! Don't worry about pronation. Just learn to run naturally (very slowly of course).  Here are a couple of articles about starting out if you haven't already read them:

Welcome.  I have the Speeds as well.  They are a great all around casual wear choice.

Thanks everyone. I want to really get into running more. I hope these will help me correct my form and build up stronger arch muscles. Maybe that will alleviate the inner ankle pain I get after about 2 miles of running.
