Vibram Fivefingers Posts

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.

  1. Makes me laugh that people claim that these are trail running shoes. Tread on a stone – agony; Tread on a tree root – broken bones!

    After searching for a TRUE, lightweight, trail running shoe, I’ve discovered there’s actually only one in production!: The Saucony ProGrid Outlaw.

    The Outlaw is 11.5oz (size 10US?), but is the only proper trail running shoe because it is a 3/4 mid-top, for ankle support. True trail running needs ankle support – if not, you’re just doing flat path cross country (and may as well just wear the Kinvara 2, etc.). Inov-8 have the Terrafly (12oz?) with a 3/4 mid-top too, but they’re not renowned for their trainers, like Saucony are.
