I am here to bear witness: Yesterday am: walking in VFFs, twingy knee, took OFF VFFs, twinge went away instantly! Feb 5, 2013
SignatureBecause it works for me!
In 2011 I was diagnosed with precancerous cervical lesions due to an HPV infection. I had a biopsy and fortunately my lesions did not progress to cervical cancer. One year later in 2012, on the anniversary of my biopsy, I finished a 5k race in VFFs. Ladies please educate yourselves about HPV and cervical cancer prevention.
AboutI am not a runner, nor an athlete, in fact I am an Amazon trapped in a wimpy body with very unfortunate natural biomechanics. I got some VFFs in 2010 because I thought the toes were neat, then I found out that crazy people wear them to run. Pfffft. I wasn't going to do that, my running days were looong over. Then I got caught in a thunderstorm out in the woods and decided running in VFFs was preferable to getting zapped. It didn't hurt to run! Hmmmm wait a minute.
Then I read some stuff on the Internet. Then I came here. Then I decided to wear zero drop shoes 100% of the time that shoes are a requirement. Now I can a.) actually run b.) find that doing it completely barefoot is the best way for me. It doesn't hurt to run and it's actually a lot easier than it ever was before. I have a long way to go but I have also come a long way.
