Kent from Sydney,Australia. Started back into running in mid August 2010, read Born to Run and started barefoot running 1st September 2010! Started with VFF Classics and would take them off at the end of a run and do a little bit of barefooting and gradually built up to mid November where I am now totally barefoot on all of my runs Grin. Hoping to do my first half marathon in May and of course barefoot.

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!

Hey all,

Some of you have been asking about an affiliate program for The Barefoot Running Book.  I finally got around to setting it up.  You'd earn 30% of sales for every book or PDF you sell via your website or blog.  Directions are here:


Let me know if you have any questions.

Hey all, my name is Noah, and I'm a Physical Therapist from southern Maine area. I became interested in barefoot/minimlist running in the last year both as a runner and as a professional. I have witnessed it help both myself and many others run again pain free and with great mechanics. I'm very interested in hearing everyone's stories, trials, troubles and successes with running/classically shod/mr/bfr (help me help others!).

I do all of my Crossfit workouts barefoot.  My local affiliate (Crossfit Grand Rapids- http://crossfitgr.com) is incredibly supportive of barefoot running and other activities.  This is one of the reasons I'm an ardent supporter of CF gyms.  Wink

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!

The Trail Glove is my current favorite.  The combination of fit and function is the best on the market for me.  I always recommend trying a few pairs at the stores... what works for me may not be universal.  However, most of the people that have tried the Trail Gloves love them.

Sizing was easy.  I wear a 10 and the Merrel 10's are perfect.  I thought at first the toe box was too big (it is roomy), but once I ran I realized it was perfect.
Robert at the Huntington store was great - he held back a size 9.5 and 10.5 in the same color until I got the shoes and called him to say if they fit or not.
Best to have your European size available for a good cross reference.

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?
