I guess with the big boys (ie. New Balance, NIke) getting on the minimalist shoe wagon... I guess I'm not surprised that Runner's world actually did a full article on
minimalist shoes and in particular VFFs

As a subscriber to the magazine I was pleasantly surprised to see such an article at all, and I did an online search just in case and found that they posted it on line.

So for your benefit here is  the Interesting article on BFR & VFFS in this month's Runner's World Magazine .

I found this one quite well balanced, I'm glad to have one to recommend to my friends to let them make their own informed decisions about what shoes to wear.

Good piece.  The only bit I'd quibble with is the idea that it's inexperienced non-runners who are at most risk running in minimalist shoes - from what we've seen here, such new runners don't have as many bad habits to unlearn, and their relative lack of conditioning forces a slower (and thus less injury-prone) transition. 

I did love this line:  "FiveFingers, which make you look positively simian while actually being quite evolved,"

I am actually a newbie to running, and I started to run after I got my VFF's. I did a bunch of research on barefoot running and have been easing myself in. I have to agree with you Rana. I am definately taking it slower than an experienced runner would. I get some pain, but I am loving wearing my VFF's.
