Anyone hear of Vibram Fivefingers?
I have been looking at the pose method sites and found these interesting shoes. They were made for sailing and similar situations where people want the control and mobility of being barefoot and the traction and protection of shoes.
The guy who started pose said they are good for pose and a couple of the barefoot marathoners used them and liked them very much. I don't know what the consensus is on the pose method or barefoot running, but I thought these were pretty interesting and might be an improvement on the Nike Free.
