Latest Vibram Five Fingers Reviews 7/19/09
After last week's huge Wired.com reviews and articles, this week has been fairly quiet. Anyway, here are your latest Vibram five fingers reviews:
- Vibram FiveFingers Run #1 and Run#2 from CaveWomanRunner:
I did my speed intervals at a nearby schoolyard. I felt like a little kid, sprinting barefoot through the grass. At first I was worried about the bumps and holes in the yard, but I actually felt more in balance and stronger with the Vibrams. I could measure the ground more easily and felt more aware of changes and obstacles. With my puppies running next to me, I felt like I, too, had paws to feel the earth beneath me. Simply put, it was freeing.
- Thin-soled Running Shoes* on Outside.com:
*Though not quite a full-on review of VFFs, I thought the mention was good enough to include the article link here!
It took me a while to get used to the VFF's simian appearance, but soon I began wearing them everywhere—walking my dog, going to the store, hiking nearby trails—much to the amusement of my fellow pedestrians. I still couldn't manage to run more than a few blocks in them, but I soon felt the actual bones, tendons, and ticklish soft spots under my arch getting stronger.
