Heard about the VFF's on the Diane Rehm Show on WAMU on Monday and being a life-long runner (sprinter turned marathon-man) I had to see what this new non-running wear is all about. I'm going to pick up a pair of Bikila's this week at my local REI and begin my journey, so from a misplaced Brooklyn Tech-Engineer/Maryland Hawk hello to the VFF forum and I hope to document my journey here...
Welcome! Hope REI has your size. If you at least measure for size while there, you'll be able to try online vendors if needed.
Not being sure how much you've already absorbed from this forum or other sources, let me offer some (hopefully well-placed) advice... Please read up on the advice and stories here regarding the importance of TAKING IT SLOW in the transition to minimal running. It seems that the established runners are sometimes more prone to early injuries or pain because they are able to push the previously-unused muscles and tendons past their limits more easily. I was blessed with being a slacker who got out of breath before my calves were tight, but others have not been so lucky.
There are tons of happy success stories too and it would be great to see another as you document that journey. Good luck!
