    Hello from the UK :)
    Great to have found this site, I'm Vicky and have recently decided to ditch the trainers (and shoes) after injury after injury after injury and thought i'd give Vibrams a go as i read good things about how they can reduce running injuries etc - LOVE THEM so much so I don't even wear "normal" shoes anymore. I have a pair for running (soon to be 2 pairs, maybe 3) and a pretty pair for going out and about... I was getting funny looks walking around the supermarket with dirty frog feet and skinny jeans My aim to be able run naked *barefoot* but my feet haven't maned up enough yet, so I run in Vibrams V-run unless i'm on the treadmill (not very often - hate the things) or doing weighs or yoga then its all barefoot.
    I'm an avid runner, and have ran for many years - all distances and terrains but i'm most happy running up muddy, rocky hills.

    Welcome, Pixi! Good to have you here! :barefoot:

    Be careful of overdoing it in the VFFs. Minshoes are a lot better than boat anchors, but they are also known for giving runners a false sense of protection which can lead to TMTS (too much too soon).
