According to Bernard Rudofsky’s “The Unfashionable Human Body”, this is what shoe designers wish feet REALLY looked like. A bit unsettling to say the least!

Great post from Five Thirty Eight about the Vibram settlement and barefoot running:
When I ran cross country in high school, the fastest guy on the boys team ran barefoot. I remember thinking this was wacky, especially given that a lot of the “cross country” courses were on asphal...

I everyone, I am looking for some shoes for work and casual that actually still look like shoes. I have Vibrams and some Luna sandles. But I need something more presentable when called for. Suggestions?

If you're planning on buying some Vibram KSO Evos make sure you try them on before you buy. They're not the same sizing as other Five Fingers. Read more here

I use endomondo to track all my workouts. I run, swim, vault on horseback, do some bouldering and sometime ride a bike. So, it's easier for me to track all these acrivities. I find it usefull that you can track all kind of sports.
When I run, I use a garmin watch so I also use garmin connect (a little double work in here)

Hi All.  How many of you have tried Earthing?  Do you agree some of the benefits that was listed on the article?

Earthing or grounding is a new technology that harnesses the age old power of the earth to reduce inflammation and improve health.

That's fun when muggles use scientific concepts they don't grasp.

Met my doctor the other day. She was in an informal meeting with a podologist and other physicians of various fields. I was barefoot.
Their professional opinion : we were made to walk barefoot.
Ite missa est.

Well my first experience of barefoot running was a bit more eventful than I hoped for.

Heat on the pavements was more painful than I expected, giving my 3 large blisters on my right foot. I then decided to walk home (after 15 minutes running) and stubbed my big toe which then started to bleed.

Oh well, got some interesting looks which kind of made up for the pain. Though it now really hurts to walk!

Next run might be on a day that's not quite so hot! And hopefully less eventful.

I remember burning my feet on Paris really hot black-tarred roads. You have to be careful, yes. You need to reinforce feet before trying those things.

It's been a few days now since Vibram's "settlement heard round the minimalist-shoe world."  I finally put down my thoughts a couple days back.  I'm hopeful I captured the essence of why the settlement does (and does not) matter.  But I'd like to hear your thoughts...

I don't know Brian -- it's a good question.  I haven't interfaced with him in awhile but based on prior interactions, I'd guess he'd be very tight-lipped about it.  He's been distancing himself (in many ways) from the shoe side of things for 2-3 years now.
