RE: A Lydiard Thread
This is easily the best thread on this message board and am very thankful for it. I am really curious on the subject of shoes (or the lack there of) which was addressed several pages ago, and would appreciate anyone taking their time to ellaborate on it a bit. What does anyone on here think about the Nike Free? I know it is recommended to be used very sparingly and for short runs only, but I personally used them several months ago for all my running and liked them. The did wear out faster than other shoes as expected. It seems that many people like the idea of having a shoe which allows your foot to do what it naturally does, and so I wonder does that make the Nike Free the best at that? Also how necessary is cushioning? jtupper, didn't you say that you ran mostly (or was it always) barefoot? What do the coaches on this thread tend to recommend for their athletes?

thanks for any replies
