Aside from going barefoot, one of the best ways to connect with the ground is with the Vibram KSO EVO because the thin outsole provides a high dose of sensory input, planting the mechanical seeds that help you run better, getting your mechanics to work better for you, so that you are less likely to land with careless footfalls.
BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
