triguy, the world of world records does not mean it is for everyone. they are extreme atheletes, paid to wear thing small lightweight shoes that are hardly there, and bio mechanically have near perfect joints and muscles for track running.

having said that, we were born without shoes, and our feet are far too often not strengthened enough to be able to run without the restriction of that shoe.

buy the vibrams for training, your form will become perfected, your muscles will get stronger, you will feel more free, and you will run like your body was designed to run.

when competing though, and for long runs, it is true that the vibrams make you almost hold back to keep from over stressing the parts of your foot. thats when some padded shoes might be nice
