I have a pair of KSO size
43 that I use for normal fitness activities.
Now to my question:
I want to get a pair of Bikila to take up running. The 43 is kind
of big, around the ankle it is quite loose and I can fit a finger
behind the heel. If I pull back the heel, my toes are only halfway
inside the shoes toes.
The 42 is snug all over, but I can feel my toes touching the
inside of the shoe and kind of a pressing feeling. They are really
But, getting to the question, you guys that DO run in these shoes,
what sensation do you have when running. Are the feet getting
pressed against the heel, or pushed towards the toes?
What are your suggestions? Do I go for the bigger 43 (my foot is a
liiittle loose inside when running) or the 42 that has that
pressing feeling? They are a little bit elastic, and I have the
sensation that my KSO´s have streched out a little bit.
Please shoot me some feedback on your experience, so I can meet up
with you guys soon.
Barefoot Runners NYC is a group of runners who have left their thick-soled sneakers in the dust and started running with Vibram Five Fingers, other minimal sole shoes, or totally barefoot. Maybe you've read Born to Run, or maybe you've gotten injured running and are looking for a better solution -- whatever your reason, this is the place.
The body's natural stride is a healthier, more natural way to run, resulting in better running efficiency and fewer injuries. We follow a lot of Daniel Lieberman's work, whose research argues that humans are natural runners, and run best with a "toe-heel-toe" stride and a minimal sole.
