Hi, I'm Joe and I'm a new owner of some super cool blue/camo KSOs.
I took up running at the start of this year, when a friend suggested we run the Fleet Half Marathon (which we did), but I've really struggled to keep it up because of constant knee pain. Wanting to get back into running, I was surfing around and came across the whole barefoot movement, and - consequently - the VFF movement.
Although I couldn't find any KSOs locally, I did manage to find them online, and received them yesterday. I've gone out for my maiden run in them today and wow, it was really enjoyable (partly, probably, because of the novelty value... boys and their toys) and also very interesting to see just how differently I run in them compared to my Mizuno running shoes. I could definitely feel some muscles working that hadn't for some time (if ever, really), which is definitely a good thing. And, best of all, no knee pain.
I'm hoping to meet people on here who are going through the same journey as I am, hopefully towards greater fitness and running (& walking) pleasure.
