They never get to the "run barefoot" conclusion, but it sure disputes motion control shoes!

  • Love that the article promotes listening to your body as a consumer... don't give in to the media hype! Was that a new color FiveFinger that just came out?  ;)
  • It's really amazing just how little science there is on this issue. Hopefully we'll see some rigorous comparisons of different kinds of shoes vs each other and vs minimal and barefoot in the next few years. Injury rates interest me the most, but I'd also like some speed/efficiency comparisons.
