"Hi Janet. Sorry for the delay. I got hurt running in my fivefingers shoes. I ran too much too soon. Had I stuck to going just a mile or two once a week for awhile I think I would have been OK. Walking shouldn't hurt. I also overused my calf…"

"It would probably depend on what is causing the inflammation and whether what you are feeling in the arches is really due to the plantar fasciitis or not. It may not be. For example, you can get "edema" or general swelling due to poor…"

"Lyle, sorry to hear you got hurt and thank you for the warning. If I may ask, did you get hurt running in the Fivefingers or just wearing them around walking? And what kind of injury did you sustain? Hope you are improving now and feeling better."

Lyle replied to JanetM's discussion Going barefoot actually helping?
"I got injured using Fivefingers shoes. I like them, but I went too hard too soon. If I had slowly built up my strength I wouldn't be hurt. Just be careful if you get the Fivefingers."

Good day,

I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and demand it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on(abiolabawuah53@gmail.com) for the full details.

Have a nice day.
Mrs.Abiola
