Hello people! Let me first tell you about my experience so far...
I'm new in this page as well as in this whole barefoot culture, and it's quite confusing when you don't know someone to ask
I started reading some topics here and found some interesting things about the barefoot experience
anyway, I was unsure about going into VFF with no experience at all, also because I didn't want to buy expensive shoes I might not want to use after a while (happened to my track and field shoes some time ago)
so, I bought a pair of much-cheaper Fila Skele-toes 1.0, to get a picture of what it might be and decide if it is for me or just not.
I decided to start training again along with my new funky shoes. I'm no athlete anymore but want to hit the track again, like I did 6 years ago.
What i found out later is that I have to start slow and barefoot to get used first.
I have to admit patience is not my best asset
ok, long story short: BLISTERS.
I read is quite common
SOOOOOOO... what's bugging me is the running technique.. the forefoot strike hurts SO DAMN MUCH and causes sore blisters after just 2 miles of jogging
Is it the cheap shoe? is it my tender skin? am I doing it wrong? will it be the same if I switch to VFF?
ANY RECOMMENDATIONS ARE WELCOME
