cavemen went extinct for a reason...
another fad that, with time, will pass...
In the meantime dudes will continue to look like d-bags strutting around in these things. Oh well. I run in a lot of races, I have yet to see anyone lined up in the front (fast guys) or middle even, wearing these things.
The whole concept of not heel striking is correct (I believe), running on the forefoot is best but you don't need those things to teach you that. POSE running has been around for a while, similar concept.
And of course, the people who wear these abominations would swear by them. How else are they going to convince themselves that these "shoes" are worth wearing? Keep telling yourself they are awesome, and it will become true. Repeat.
