I just read the blog post and response from Asics on Zerodrop.
I have to say, “Wow!” I didn’t realize how passionate people could be about shoes. Oh, wait, I forgot about Imelda Marcos and her 2700 pairs of shoes. Or Vogue Editor Anna Dello Russo with 4000 pairs.
Why is Anna wearing granny pants with this outfit??
I don’t have evidence. I’ve never been interviewed. If I ever go back to running in shoes, I will buy Asics. I hate my Adidas shoes that were recommended to me by a running store so much that I’d rather go barefoot. (pun intended, as it always is) I wear VFFs at times but I prefer barefoot.
I have tendonitis in my heel and foot. It is neither getting better or worse from running barefoot.
Just like with my ‘religious’ beliefs, I am not going to go out and convince anyone which way they should run nor do I want them to shove their beliefs down my throat.
I have a mind. I’ve already considered things. This is what I believe. This is how I run.
Yes, I still wear 3 inch heals when given the opportunity. (I really am a podiatry doctor’s nightmare)
