Had tried this kind of shoes a few times on marathons in Hong Kong and UAE few years back. It is very light you woudn't feel like having any when running races but seriously will damage your heel for daily use. I don't think it would be a good idea to use it on training my friend.Does the Legion Prohibit minimalist running shoes? i know that the american military has some restrictions on them.
Oh yes. We had something similar (no hob-nails, just nails) and some were always longer than the sole. But what can one do, either a stinging feeling in your feet when you walk/run or stinging feeling in your a** if you don't (provided by some nice corporal's size 10). Trust me you'll run like a gazelle on meth...our running shoes were the old type hob-nail boots.
thankyou very much, this was the exact awnser i was looking for. ill wear some regular runners, they will probably last a little longer too.Pretty simple. Don't bring anything you don't want to lose. The regulation trainers will be issued, these you wear for sport. I suspect once you get to your regiment you will be able to ugrade your runners (within acceptable parameters). These type of "minimalist"shoes tho' I would not wear to rassemblement unless you want to be paraded in front of the Companie as some type of "Pink Floyd" and have them fed to the RSM's dog. Wear them in your own personal training time after you have gained some level of acceptance in your section (if thats your fancy).
