Yesterday, I became the proud owner of a pair of vivobarefoot shoes.
Today, I ran in them for the first time. Playing it safe, I ran a slow nearly-mile to gauge whether this was a ridiculous impulse-buy or the beginning of a lifelong friendship.
From a comfort point of view, I’m sold. Lightweight, cool and no hint of rubbing. From a running point of view, the jury’s still out. The heel is noticeably lower than my trainers and I could feel the stretch at the back of my calf.
So I will be taking advantage of my shorter Juneathon runs to experiment, bit I won’t be throwing away my trainers just yet.
