for what its worth what keeps me going despite my struggles is in regular shoes at various times my feet wanna do and or move in ways the shoes do not allow or are not conducive too. For example sometimes i have a bit of a twist in my step on my right foot as i run. In the vibrams its no big deal land how you wanna land take off how you wanna take off feet get to move how they want too and its not an issue. But in regular shoes i end up with issues. I've gone through shoe after shoe after shoe and cant find ANYTHING that works anymore.
Only problems i have so far with vibrams is getting used to them many issues have gotten better in time. Like at one point early on my claves hurt so bad i couldnt run at all ! but thats all long behind me. I battled blister hell. then got past the blister issues. but injured the one foot as the one pair of vibrams was too tight. Only to finally now get back into them and battle blister hell all over again lol but I think i'm getting past that now too.
I'm sure i'm doing too much too soon also but i'm in a tough spot I want to run at this point i cant stand wearing anything else so what else can i do just gotta charge forward.
