I've checked out the POSE site and gone through their shoe list. Haven't been able to find any of these locally. It sounds like fit is very important and I'm leery about ordering on-line without knowing proper size. What other types of shoes do people use for POSE style running? I understand thin sole, no extra heel cushioning, light weight, and flexibility are the most important characteristics. Any others I should be aware of? Thanks.

Have you checked out Zappos for on line ordering? They pay shipping both ways, 100 % guarantee.

I ordered a pair of converse from Zappos. When I got them they were a size to big. I called Zappos and they sent out the correct size before I even sent the other one's back!!!!

They are how to do customer service!!!

(and then the service rep sent me a nice thank you!?!??!?!)

Thanks for the info. I'll check Zappo's out.

Anyone have any suggestions for shoe models for POSE? I searched the boards and it seems like a lot of people like the Nike Free for the WOD, but couldn't determine if these are also suitable as runners?

The Free's are extremely popular for running but seems to take a while to get adjusted to. Personally I like Saucony's due to the narrow fit & my A-width heel.

I've been using the Nike Free 5.0 and they have served me well through many a WOD... I'm looking to get the Nike Free 7.0 Cross Trainer, because there's more support as compared to the 5.0 and might be even better.

I love my Nike Free 5.0 trail. A bit hard to come by (had to get mine on Ebay) due to my size 13 needs, but you might find smaller sizes locally. Otherwise Ebay works well.

Your best bet is to go to an actual runner's store because the people there have much experience with all sorts of runners and the way they run. They can definitely help you find your shoes.

And I didn't know the POSE method was what it is, cuz I have been running like that forever. Learn something new every day.
