I am a barefoot kinda guy.
If I am at home I will walk around barefoot and when running I have the very thinnest of sole shoes on. I love my Five Fingers, Trail Gloves or Vapor Gloves.
Once I have about 400-500kms on them, I usually get them recycled and go for the same replacement pair.
The last time I tried to get a traditional pair of running shoes, I got the ASICS Patriot 12's and after about 3km in to a run, I would get knee pain that was really annoying as it would disappear as quickly as my motivation to keep running. I would be able to switch to barefoot shoes instantly and my knees would be fine. The irony being I was worried I was being too harsh on my knees!
This January, I went to the Adidas site as I was told about a sale and grabbed a pair of Run Falcon 2.0 TR Shoes. After a brief breaking them in period, they are really good. I have done a few 5ks in them and will look to do a longer distance in them. They have a nice balance of cushioning and response. I am getting used to them more and more. One small issue is it was weird having a heel that moved around in the shoe.
Then I found out about 'The Heel Lock' (short 1min straight to the point video).
Game changer and fitting of my trainers is SO MUCH BETTER. Maybe give it a shot?
