i like walking around barefoot so i might look into this
Heard about this years ago, turns out my natural stride is already the correect form. Could never understand how anyone ran with heel landing first.
But I would only wear those shoes on the beach or a hike or something. I much prefer well cushioned nike's running around on concrete and treadmills all the time.
I run in flip flops
i lift in socks for important lifts *shrugs* feels good man
I model my running after the cheetah...I run around on all fours.
i could never do it, as i've got massively arched monkey-feet.
But, we used to compete against guys that would do it - usually kenyan immegrants in steeple chace. I've seen them get stepped on in a line start - and it caused a bunch of shit.
i understand the point, but its too dangerous when you're competing on a track.
i have vibrams, they feel pretty nice. just gotta get used to them though.
ordered them from kayakshed.com if you choose to go with them, make sure you follow their sizing instructions to figure out your size. I got a size 40 which is the smallest, because my feet are exactly 10 inches long from the heel to longest toe. they actually said it would be for someone with 10.5 inch feet, but it worked out well enough.
Interesting...but I'm pretty sure I'd get killed for wearing those shoes around here.
for some reason those look really fucking bad ass
Looks like a sound idea after you get used to them.
Ninja's been doing it for centuries.
man i bet those feel weird as fuck to begin with
because they look like gorilla feet
they are weird, i get a lot of looks, and I don't really give a fuck, if someone has the balls to tell me to my face that my shoes are gay, then i'll will take one off and recite the following.
What did the Five Fingers say to teh face?
me: SLAP and fucking leave my mark
a cop came to my house for my background investigation to get hired, and they caught me JUST as I was leaving for the gym. I had my vibrams on... the look on his face was fucking priceless. The female cop was like "oh....those are neat"
OK you homos have convinced me to buy some gorilla feet. Should I go with the classics or KSOs first?
how about the nike free shoes?
i need new shoes for running anyway, is it possible that these can be daily wears? people in australia are used to trolling around in barefoot or thongs anyway, i regularly go commando with the footware. might just be a better way, avoiding things like glass and sticks and shit
KEEP STUFF OUTS, SON (KSO) they are nice... good in cold or hot.
Got the KSOs 2 weeks ago, they're great. Only downside is people asking you about them.
i'm gonna start telling them I take steroids and these shoes keep me from roid raging on people.
i'd rock them. pronation ftl though
those might be both the gayest and coolest shoes ever.
I think running and "broly" do not mix well period
