Well thank god I have never had TOFP *knock on wood* but if your form isn't almost perfect then that could easily be a problem. Also you will walk different in trainers which will hurt your form. Have you ever tried to wear your VFF to your racket sports? Also if you can't wear VFF to work I would buy a pair of minimalistic shoes such as the Merrell Glove series or the New Balance Minimus. Those minimal shoes will help a great deal do to the thin sole and zero drop heal (Minimus has 4mm rise).
Touching up on the Bikila/Trek question. I only have the KSO's so mine do not have any thickness to the sole. 1mm is significant if you walk and run barefoot all the time but to an untrained foot I don't know if they'll be able to tell the difference.

The Adam by Altra looks pretty sweet. In the video, the guy mentioned the insoles has shock absorption and the other one has arch support....? other then the insoles it look like a nice shoe. Hopefully they will ship one out to Jason so we can get a review on it.

Thank you! I think the best part was hearing people say "Holy crap there really is a kid in a kilt bare foot!" It cracked me up every time I heard it.

So Saturday was the Flushing Shillelagh Four Mile Run. I decided to dress up with a Leprechaun hat, kilt and of course bare feet! I didn't make it the whole 4 miles because of rough roads. I made it around 2.5 miles barefoot and the other 1.5 in my VFF. I definitely loved the freedom and the shock on everyone's face was a pretty good ego booster as well!

Here's some pictures:



This was just one step in my BF career and by summer I hopefully wont need to be carrying those VFF with me!

I walked around every day in my KSO's for a month while training with my shoes. I ran the race in my shoes then went straight running and walking in my VFF's. Now I have the Minimus's for work, KSO's for everyday and bare feet for running!

I have never been a moderator before nor have that great of knowledge yet of BF running. I know pretty much all the basics though. I could try and help you put as a moderator as much as I can.

Hello I am Dave McChesney out of Flint, MI. I go to Kettering University (former GMI) and studying Electrical Engineering. I wrestled in high school and hated running and hated practice because of it. When I went to college I said I want to run the 10 Mile Crim Race. I signed up and trained in those, according to Jason, feet coffins for a few months. One month in I bought a pair of VFF KSO's and wore those everyday but still trained in my Adidas's. After 6 miles in the race I hurt my hip due to heel striking to hard... go figure! So after the disappointment of walking/running the last little bit I looked into running in my VFF and then this winter I decided to go completely barefoot and loving every single mile of it!

Hey everyone-

I don't really have the time to manage the details of the forum, especially as it grows.  Would anyone be interested in becoming a moderator?  Ideally, I'm looking for two or three people to approve new members, kick out spammers, and stimulate conversations.  I would like someone that would have the ability to check in at least once every day or so.  If you're interested, just reply to this thread.

Hi there guys!

Just after a bit of advice I've been running in vff and bf since nov (wearing both the bikila and treksports) around xmas I had a bit of TOFP so had a bit of a break and scaled back my mileage and it went away and had no other issues.  Until this week when I noticed a bit of pain in my big toe of my right foot.  It doesn't hurt when I run bf or in vff but is very painful when I walk or have to wear regular trainers for work or racket sports!

I have a couple of theories and would be interested in what anyone else may think

1 I'm running incorrectly and pushing of my toes instead of lifting the foot, poor form(which I'm working on)

2 I walk/run differently in my regular trainers

3 It could be just another TMTS injury and need to scale back

One more thing/question has anyone else noticed a massive difference in ground feel between the bikilas and treksport can 1mm really make that much difference? Any feedback ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers Jonny  Huh
