Xero Shoes TerraFlex

Product Review (submitted on 20 March 2019):
I started running seriously again 6 months ago, after a long gap, and pretty soon I had the dreaded runner's knee. A local running shop analysed my gait and sent me away with a (very) expensive pair of motion control shoes. They didn't help. And they were horrible to run in. Eventually, via the book Born to Run, I came very late to the barefoot/minimalist running movement and purchased the Terraflex shoes 2 weeks ago. I've run in them almost daily since they arrived. To say I'm delighted is an understatement. I love the feel of running beside the river Thames, sensing the ground underfoot and adjusting my balance naturally. My tendency to land on my heels has vanished, and with it, all the shock that was hurting my knees. I can feel my ankles and arches getting stronger by the day. And my 10k times are already as fast in these shoes with my new running technique as they were in my old bouncy trainers. I'm hooked on minimalist running, and on these Xero shoes. If anyone else is interested, I found the YouTube video by Dr Cucuzzella on natural running technique to be invaluable in adjusting my running style to suit these shoes.
