For years I've used Vivobarefoot
shoes. I've been very happy with them. Recently I started playing with the Corbag
, which included lots of pivoting, shuffling jumps, and sudden changes of direction. All that on rough-ish concrete. Within a few days, my Aqua looked like this:
I switched to the Dharma, and this was the result in less than one hour:
1) The Dharma are sold as lifestyle shoes, not exercise shoes.
2) For the past years I wore them more than any other pair of shoes.
3) They'd suffered from my walk under a sudden downpour in Italy.
Still, that makes two pairs destroyed in two days. :'( That makes me a little afraid to invest in another expensive pair of shoes, since I'd like to keep training with the Corbag
. Is there a really, really sturdy pair of barefoot shoes (zero-drop flexible soles, wide toe boxes) that would make the investment worthwhile?
