Check out Newtons or Nike Frees at first. Once you wear them out - move to Vibrams.

One of my ankles hurts, and I have wide feet.

Good idea?

They'll stretch to fit widefeet, up to EEE width. For the other bit, you probably want to talk to someone who knows what they're talking about, ie. an exercise physiologist or a doctor of some sort, not PbNation.

and im sure vibrams have ****ed some people up too. Different people have different feet. I dont get blisters in racing flats, nor do my knees or feet hurt. There are plenty of runners who run solely in racing flats. I usually just use them for speed work and interval days, but its just another option. Really, the op should go to a legit running store and try as many sneakers as he can.

There's a reason that people wear shoes. It protects your feet.

I wear my VFF Sprints on all my workouts and running. I love them, enough that I've got a pair of Bikilas in the mail to me. As soon as you put them on and start running you feel so light on your feet and running seems much more natural. It's almost effortless in comparison to using running shoes. There is a break in period for your body. Most people complain about their feet, but I felt it all in my calves. You will probably hate yourself during this 2 week period, but it's more than worth it. I only run about 3 miles at a time, but I know people who ran the Army 10-miler at Bragg in them.

On that note, you should make sure your command will allow you to wear them before you just show up with them on. Mine doesn't allow it in garrison, but I'm in Afghanistan now with relaxed grooming standards and civilian clothing so I get to wear them.

I have been running on Newtons for a long time now and they are about finished. I love them but it's time for a new set of running shoes.

Thanks for all the info guys... I think I'll go with a pair of Bikilas when I get the money.

Overgrown. Do you ware socks with them? If not is it that or the fact that you are running in "toe" shoes that your COC doesn't like?
