I have been running for about 2 years now (background is fairly competitive cycling) and so far (fingers-crossed) no injuries, pains, etc. Until last month, it was unstructured - just going out when I felt like it, making up my route, distance, speed as I felt.
I have seen some New Balance 101 minimal trail shoes for £20 and thought that they are cheap enough to 'have a go'. So, I don't 'need' to fix any problems - I just thought it's a cheap introduction.
QUESTION: Am i going to benefit from this at all? Is there any other advantage to minimal shoes other than injury-prevention? Is it more fun, or faster, or better for the environment?
And please don't turn this into another thread like the last one. Thanks!
