Over the past 6-8 months or so I’ve become a big fan of running at least once a week in the Vibram Fivefingers shoes. Given their minimalist style (i.e., no cushioning), I have found them to be a phenomenal tool to use for strenghtening of the lower legs and feet, as well as for helping me to develop a more efficient running stride. Below are a series of posts I have written, as well as a few videos and podcasts that I have produced, on these awesome shoes.
