I guess I can be classified as the Lydiard expert, but not the Lyden expert; so I should not pretend to be one and speak for him. However, I believe, in a nutshell, his idea and Lydiard's are quite similar--flexible shoes that is more or less "minimalist" shoes but not to the extreme case. Rob is more of a scientist than Lydiard when it comes to athletic shoes. I believe Lyden has better understanding of today's technologies and better understanding of mechanical and structural differences of individuals. However, in my mind, that could also blind people as well (too much thinking). Lydiard was much more straight forward (too much simplifying at times).

I remember the time when Rob and I went for a jog and I asked him about the particular shoe he was wearing, he said, "they bend where they're supposed to." That was enough for me to believe he knows what he was talking about.
