Five Shoes for Different Occasions

When I started running I had no idea about picking the “right” shoe and just wore whichever fits me well and looks “decent” enough.  In fact, I don’t think that what I wore during my first race were running shoes!  (They were most likely badminton shoes that I wore when that was the “it” sport.)  Fast forward five years and much more than a dozen pairs of shoes later, I have a list of five running shoes I like wearing for different “occasions.”

Meet My New BFF: VFF Sprint (Vibram Five Fingers)

I’ve always been fascinated with Vibram Five Fingers (VFF) ever since the first time I saw it.  At first I thought it’s crazy because back then I always thought that shoes should be thick and soft (cushioning).  Fast forward, I started running, and learned all about my feet, and eventually, shoes.  Even my first post on this site is about picking the right shoe for the right feet.  When VFFs came, all that became obsolete—“as long as you have feet VFFs are for you,” ultramarathoner Ronald Declarador states.
