I can't say from experience, but the few people I know who have run marathons tell me stories of backpain the next day. I take that as a sign that we're not meant to put that stress of running all day on our upright backs.

We're not designed to run on pavement is really the issue. Natural surfaces have a lot more give.

Humans are really rather good at running. We can outlast a horse on a hot day.

This is probably the first good idea I've heard in regards to using those shoes. That actually sounds beneficial.

I'm sure they'd be good for weight lifting too. You want as thin a sole as possible when squatting/deadliftng

Usain Bolt is a track runner. They wear spikes. As far as Kenyans, they're famous for winning races completely barefoot, though typically XC and not marathons. In any case, Ethiopian Abebe Bikila won the Olympic marathon in 1960 running completely barefoot. Those guys don't wear Vibrams because their feet are tough enough, but for the rest of us, the Vibrams are an excellent compromise.

No it isn't. He'll wear whatever the highest bidder tells him to wear.

a retarded post, actually. He confused endurance running with sprinting. different styles have different needs and different techniques. you don't see high tops in the soccer field and you don't see cleats on a clay court.

the best endurance runners can run on any shoe they want, even barefoot if they wish, but they will have transition it carefully. they didn't learn their pacing, foot strikes, and strides overnight. they crafted their technique after years of practice and after logging in the countless miles.

It is simply all based on what they are used to. So, if they want to go barefoot, they will have change their motions and adapt to the new style and reprogram the muscle memory best suited for the new style. And that may require the same amount of time and distance to invest as they did with the shoes.

Shoes are merely tools to help protect the feet and joints and prevent injuries. And like all other tools, you have to learn how to use them properly, otherwise you'd get harmful results. No shoe makes any athlete better. If that were the case, I'd be wearing a pair of Air Jordans for every occasion.

Heavily padded running shoes promote a heel strike, which rapes your knees.

Shoes like the Nike Free and of course the vibrams promote a more natural mid foot strike, which alleviates a good portion of the shock by using the arches of your feet.

This is for distance running, sprinting is an entirely different form.
