    They look awesome. I almost got some myself but then realised I still have to wear out my 5 fingers and saucony first. Did a great 5km trail/road run today but my toe next to big toe is still killing me. Got no idea how to get over it. shoes help mask the pain but I took htem off for the last 500m and realised it was still really sore. :(

    Its gets really painful after about 3k from tip to the base of my 4th toe (next to the big boy). I went to a barefoot friendly podiatrist who suggested it was being caused by the toe in question trying to 'balance' the way my foot moves. We tried a little cushioning taped to the bottom of my foot to reflect the pain but when I went for a run it was more painful than the problem itself!

    I have been focusing on trying to pinpoint the pain and it is isolated to the phallange section. The funny thing is the toe on my other foot behaves exactly the same way. Its also not a barefoot issues becuase I went for a run in my old (but still newish) super cusioned shoes and had exactly the same problem. I give up.

    So what's the verdict Kali ? They actually look like moccasin, so it is not too bad. I have seen some other on the forum saying lot of good things about them. Which model did you get ? G4 or X8 ?

    Hi guys, I wont be able to make this one. I've suffered an injury setback (not running related) and won't be able to train for a while. I'll be following you guys with great interest (if not a little jealousy) and wish you guys the best of luck!

    things are falling apart. My foot is getting worse. Took a week off and then ran for ten minutes on a treadmill today and the pain is getting worse not better. At this point I can't even train so there is no way I am going to make it. :-( But I hardly train anyway :)
