    Hello there, my name is Pieter (45) and live in the west of the Netherlands close to Rotterdam. Started running in 2015 to lose weight. Did struggle a lot with knee problems and changed to barefoot running around april 2019. In the summer of 2019 I was able to run 10 km on barefoot. The idea was to also run obstacle course races on barefoot in 2020 but due to Covid19 this is still something I have to do. My favorite running shoes are Vibram FiveFingers V-Run on the road and Vibram FiveFingers V-Trail 2.0 for trailruns.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome!! I too experienced a lot of pain and injuries when I ran shod, but since going all-natural, I have found a reduction of both pain and injury. Good job on your accomplishments!

    There are a lot of good people here and we are looking forward to getting to know you.

    Welcome, Denser! Did you find that your knee pain improved when you began running barefoot and/or in minimalist shoes? :barefoot:
