Minimalist/Barefoot link

For any of you out there fascinated as I am with Minimalist/Barefoot information, here's a good new link. It's not really new info but it puts the lingo from the Liebermann study (the one that's gotten so much press) into a little simpler format.

Now that we've got almost 18 months of selling fivefingers under our belts, we suggest more than ever that if this interests you, please proceed with caution. Most folks seem to underestimate how much time it takes to transition to less of a shoe (or fivefingers, or going barefoot). For many it just doesn't seem to work very well regardless of the time they take and for others it can be a fairly smooth transition. We're all different and all the situations are different (and running shoes work really well for lots of folks). Thus, enjoy the info but be sure to trust what works for you. Whatever your level of interest, know that we're here to help. Cheers-Teague
