Renaissance Moccasins at the gym

I'm Eric, 36, and very new to running.  In fact, I've only ever run on a treadmill.  More of a fast walk, really. 

I have some friends that are crazy about Vibram FiveFingers.  I figured there must be something to this barefoot running thing, so before I take the plunge and buy some Vibrams, I decided for the past month to workout in the gym using another flat flexible soled shoe called Renaissance Moccasins.  As I bought them about 10 years ago at a Renaissance Festival, this made sense.  They're very light and comfy, and the sole is about 6mm thick.  I do occasionally get odd looks at the gym. Smiley

Perhaps some day I'll trade up to the Vibrams.  Still not in the mindset to make such a purchase.  The more I spend on the treadmill though, the more I think about it.

Welcome, this is a great site and I am sure you will find plenty to chat about here. I know I have so far.

Easy, Light, Smooth and Fast is the way to run.
