Vibram Agrees to Settle Class Action Lawsuit

Some of my friends and families sent me this article, cause they all know I ran in VFF. 

I don’t have much to said about the “scam” putting up by VFF, it was just merely a slogan or marketing gimmick that we usually saw in many campaigns or promotions. If VFF is guilty for this, then all other company that jump into the barefoot bandwagon too are guilty. As runners, I only belief that running is an activities that based on yourself (being your legs, foot, muscles, core and others part of your bodies). And obviously, running should not be the type of shoes that you are wearing. Most of my thoughts were described in this article here. 

Have a look, think and working on what you believed in.

Loved my experience in my first Full Marathon in VFF
Loved my barefoot running too, but BF is in the back seat now.


  1. While I don't wear VFF, I believe it does benefit some runners if not all.

    Some people on FB complained about the high price, but with what you shared on your post on the mileage of your VFFs, I think it's a good investment.

    1. I think more like the type of training you do in them. Did you see people heel striking when barefoot running? And I can still run comfortable with forefoot even I am in motion control shoes. The important thing is to train your running gait/style, not what type of shoes you are training with.
      Of cause you will do better forefoot landing in down-to-ground racer or VFF.

  2. I cannot wear my Asics Gel Kayano 19 and it makes me prone to injury but I don't go suing the company. hehehe

    1. We are good branch of running men (and women) here :)
