That story about running was great. What an awesome testimony to the VFF. Love your site.

Very inspirational! Thanks for sharing this story. Running should not hurt. It seems like the prevailing wisdom is that our bodies are defective and not really made for running. Hopefully, replace that with the knowledge that we are born to run.

Great article.

I, too, can attest to the whispers and questions at Disney World. It's a fantastic conversation starter.

I'm a pastor and I just started wearing Fivefingers! If you came to my church, there would be no need for forgiveness!!

As most people have mentioned, yes, a great article, indeed. :)

Being comfortable in your own skin makes many things possible!

It's also kind of amazing that the more posts I read on this site, the more it becomes very clear we (as a society) are not as "modern" as we think. Of course, when there's money to be made and product (shoes that continue to promote bad mechanics and weakening of the human body over generations) to be sold, the idea of being a smart consumer becomes even more important.

Thank you for sharing.

When I made the switch...my calves turned to STONE. It took 2 months for them to come back to normal. I advise people to switch slowly, I went to fast to quickly. I wear them everywhere...much to my kids dismay ;-)

I have also come to love VFFs in the past couple of months, although I have a slight disagreement... These shoes do not work well with soccer! (and are slightly uncomfortable on bike pedals)

I'm working to find out everything I possibly can and cannot do in my VFF sprints! This week I am wearing them to the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference in Houston (including during my own presentation today.) I have a feeling these shoes will become more prevalent in the planetary science community in the near future!

After sitting on the sideline debating if I should try it, I have decided to go all in.

I have some VFF KSO's and will train in them exclusively now. I already had altered my running form to not land on my heal.

It's going good so far. I'm excited to see where it takes me.
