Go for a 4mm heel-toe drop at first with a shoe like the Saucony Kinvara 3! If it works out for you then you should go on to a shoes like the Minimus Zero but I think the jump is too big to make so quickly.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm currently considering the New Balance Minimus Road Shoe MR00 with a 0mm differential. Is the jump from a 4mm differential to a 0mm differential a big one and should I perhaps spend another year with a shoe like the Kinvara 3? I have been running with the Kinvara 2s solidly for 8 months or so and have had no problems.
Hey there. Last running season I ran in the Saucony Kinvara 2's and absolutely loved the light sensation and suffered no injuries. Now I would like to go for an even more barefoot approach, perhaps with a 0mm toe-heel drop. I've been lookig at all of the shoes out there and I'm pretty overwhelmed. I'd rather not wear the Virbram Five-Fingers and would prefer a more "normal" looking shoe such as the VIVO barefoot shoes.
I'm 15 years old, 5'10, 135lb and run 20 miles a week. Does anyone have any tips or favourite shoes which they would recommend? Thanks
Hi, I'm 14 years old and a passionate runner. I have suffered from osgood schlatters in the past but at the moment am injury free. I run at county standard but would like to improve and I am wondering how many days a week I should be training in order to improve a lot without getting injured?
