At last year’s Academy Awards, Shailene Woodley caused a stir by wearing her black Vibram FiveFingers Classics (RIP) to an after party. Many people were shocked that she would ditch her designer heels and choose the comfort (and, yes, odd looks) of a barefoot-feel shoe, but we at Technically Running said, “More power to her!” Heels and traditional men’s dress … Read More

For those of you who have only recently begun to read our posts, you may be asking yourself “what the heck is a calf-ocalypse?”  Calf-ocalypse is a term Meagan and I coined after our first foray into minimalist running.  I won’t go into vivid detail (check out Chapter 2 of our Vibram Transition series if you are interested) but the … Read More

To heel strike or not to heel strike? That is the question. At least, it is if we’re talking about walking in minimalist shoes. When it comes to the minimalist footwear/barefoot movement, people are constantly emphasizing the importance of running with proper form, but no one ever talks about what happens when you walk. In barefoot/minimalist running, it’s all about … Read More

It’s been a while since our last Vibram Transition post. For the time being, we’ve been focusing on testing other minimalist shoe options (lots of exciting reviews coming soon!), but I wanted to come back to this series and talk about one of the less emphasized parts of barefoot/minimalist running: injury. “Injury” often feels like a dirty word in the … Read More
