i have to fully agree with you Kealda. after trying some forefoot running even with the shoes i have i noticed a difference. when i walk around barefoot in my apartment and even with flip-flops out and about, i dont really notice pain at all (unless its right after a run). i can do pretty much anything active if i stay on my toes but the second i start using my heels to absorb inpact, the pain sets in.

a LOT of the shoes you buy today have much more heel pading than toe pading making it harder to run the way your feet are built to operate. you can still buy a running shoe without going to a minimalist shoe if you think you still need the extra cushion by buying a shoe that keeps your foot more parallell to the ground via equal amounts of padding in front and rear.
