After reading "Born to Run" I decided to give the "barefoot" running movement a try. I have always hated running as I tend to get cramps in my feet, calves, and pain in my knees almost
immediately into any run or jog wearing "traditional" athletic shoes
. I have tried nearly every major brand, inserts, etc, to no avail. The Vivobarefoot Evo II has completely changed my perspective on running. Wearing these for the first few times is like learning to run all over again. I have less pain and cramping, and I can run longer distances than I was able to with my old running shoes
. I would highly recommend The Vivobarefoot Evo shoes
to anyone who walks, jogs, or runs. I will never go back to traditional athletic shoes
unless I am using them for casual walking, bike riding, or taking my son to the park.
