Cool Jason, thanks... Just curiosity, do you have any plans on reviewing the new Altra shoes? The company is based just a few miles from my house, they seem pretty cool, you might want to check them out!

Anyone else tried this? The CrossFit gym that I go to encourage Barefoot/VFF workouts, and I must say that your workout feels totally different when you kick off your shoes! Your balance is improved on heavy lifts, your footing feels stronger, and at the end of the WOD your feet can feel the burn also!

I think you will find in Jason's posts that he loves the Evo II and the Merrel Trail Glove, but you will see that the Trail Glove is winning out.  I have never tried any Terra Plana so I don't have a comparison there.  However, I have run trails in my Sprints - bad idea!  So I called the Merrel store in Huntington NY and ordered over the phone the Trail Glove.  I have only been on one run and wore them around in the snow - I have yet to run a trail - but I can tell that these will be the best trail shoes ever.  The traction is amazing.  If the mud is really deep Jason recommends the Inov8, but for everything else the Trail Glove will be perfect.  I will be wearing it as my daily shoe - I am going to buy a pair in leather for work as soon as it is available - I bought a pair for my 9 year old daughter as well.
Thanks macmhagan, I'll have to look into the Trail Glove. That's what I was leaning towards anyway, how true is the sizing?

Hey Jason, I know that you get a lot of questions on minimalist shoes, but I guess I might as well throw one more on the pile.

I am running BF as much as possible, and when I'm not barefoot I'm in my KSOs, all day every day. But I am a wildland firefighter, getting ready for the summer season. We do a lot of trail running, and since this is my first BF year, I don't know where to look. I've been looking into the Merrell Trail Glove, they look great, but I'm also interested in the Terra Plana Barefoot line. I'm interested in mostly the Evo, Evo II, or the Neo, but I'm not sure if any of them have the traction that I would need running trails. Any advice anyone would have would be appreciated, Thanks guys!

I can run in my KSOs fine in the cold, but I would rather run total barefoot.

Hey guys, kind of a simple question here, might sound dumb but here goes: I'm just getting into BF running, and my feet can't really take the chip-and-seal asphalt roads by my house, much less the 20 degree weather. Would it be smarter to start running barefoot on my treadmill, or wear my KSOs outside? I would like to get some mileage under my belt, but I don't want to kill myself over it. Thanks for any advice!

Hey John, welcome!  I hear Utah has some great trails... I hope to make it out there in the near future!
Thanks Jason, you make it out here and be sure to let me know! There are some great trails around here that I'm sure you'd love

Hey guys, I'm John, from good old Utah. I'm currently going to college to be a Firefighter/Paramedic, I started barefoot running after all the running with shoes at the Fire Academy left me with shin splints and IT band problems. I'm still in the beginning stages of the transition, hopefully it finishes out smoothly.
