    I thought about getting a pair of Altras to work in, but ultimately decided on Xero. I ordered a pair of their hiking boots. The Altras are just too cushioned for me.

    The article doesn't say, but I wonder which company told them that they would change their designs over a couple of decades so consumers wouldn't notice that they've had it wrong this whole time? I guess it's good that the major shoe companies at least are aware that their designs are crap.

    As evidenced by their poor attempts with the Nike Free line...

    Yeah, it's amazing that they market it as a "barefoot shoe." You would get a better barefoot feel with a pair of flip flops, and save a hundred bucks in the process.
