Brooks have a wider toe box which will help if you have wide feet. Don't listen to some of these jokers about running barefoot. It is a fad that Vibram is maching a pile of money on. I agree that changing your gait to more on the ball of your feet may help with limiting injuries but we wear shoes all day, sit at a computer, 2/3rds of the population is overweight, we eat like shit, drink too much, overmedicated, overworked and overstressed. To compare us to people in Mexico, as this book states, is absurd. Could it be possible that these guys run great distances, barefoot, without injury could be a result of a completely different lifestyle. There is nothing common between us except that we are humans.
