Minimalist shoes: Some thoughts
Been walking in minimalist shoes for 2 years now and just started running in them as well.
Have found that I am less prone to impact injuries such as sore knees because of the mid foot strike. Overall I find it fatigues my core a lot more though and I can't run as far yet - am doing more run/walk. This is probably a good thing as it is exposing weak core fitness and now I can build it simply by running. That's what I assume anyway.
Don't know if it was my imagination, but it seemed easier to breathe as well....
Healthy is the new wealthy.
