    Nothing like being almost ten years behind a fad ... and thirty years too soon for retro ...

    Yet another useless article from someone who just doesn't get it.
    If, under "Cons", you list "The lack of cushioning means feedback from the road can be harsh," you lose all credibility that you know anything at all about barefoot shoes or barefoot running. :rolleyes: :banghead:

    You don't necessary have to be true minimalist (or bf) runner for that kind of an article, but at least you should do your homework. Today there is a myriad of "bf shoes", on what basis he elevates those three on top? The "comparison chart" is very vague and subjective. For that article, I really cannot see any reason other than give the writer a possibility for commissions...

    I've noticed a lot this type of article, blog or video having more the look and feel of a press release than a piece of analysis. I have even heard people saying some shoe being faster that the other, I always thought it was the runner:confused:
