At least you can't play as long in light shoes as you can with shoes with good arch support=sneakers etc. Until the tendon in the arch has strengthened enough to handle a full day of DG. Or in my case 10-13 hours of work+DG in a row spelled disaster repeated too many times last year. Can't blame a guy for trying to rehab after injuries...My tip is to not push through pain if you get a sharp pin prick like pain in the bottom of the foot ahead of the heel. PF can happen with sneakers but any light shoes magnify the stresses.

JR wrote:JHern i'd like to hear about longer term results. I don't like multi piece soles and puncture resistance compromises are a no go but if there are better models in the line up i may be interested if this shoe has longevity. I'm worried about the nub that are so large wearing so fast. It does not sound like a durable shoe sole wise.

I guess I'm partial to barefootedness being from the american south.
