Soo, I have always had "bad" feet
More than you wanted to know, I'm sure, but I have bad bunions and had since I was 11 (am now 30).
As anyone here who has had bad feet knows, this is precisely why Vffs make sense to me ... Shoes are awful for us 'bad feet' people. I wear my Bikilas everywhere and have happy feet now!
Now for the running question: short runs have gone fairly well.. Backed off at the first inkling of tofp and am giving about a week and a half before I start again running 1/2 mi and moving it up 1/4 mi each week. Any longer runs will be shod. Are my mechanics going to be too off with my feet?.
