|Subject: ||RE: VIBRAM FIVE FINGERS SUED FOR FALSE CLAIMS|
My brother sent me a pair of five-fingers after he read "Born to Run." I was a good high school runner that quit in college due to injury problems, and had given up running. The changes in my stride that minimal shoes led to has allowed me to run again, and I'm up to about 35 miles a week, the most I've done in ten years. So I definitely think, for some people, the minimal shoe thing might be worth trying. I have had to build up mileage very gradually.
But I did exactly what one poster said when that pair wore out-- I just bought cheap, thin-soled shoes, and they've worked just as well. I don't think the separate toes has anything to do with their potential benefits.
