Observations for dry warm conditions
- When running in Invisible Shoes it is like the world has been carpeted with rubber.
- The shoes give you the ability to run on roads like chip-seal, that you could never run barefoot on.
- When running in these, you get a sense of freedom, that covered shoes simply don't provide.
- You will still need to watch your step, because the occasional rock will still hurt if stepped on (I know this from experience).
- I don't think these are the best solution when the weather is rainy and wet. Your foot tends to slip (at least mine do) within the sandal. I do wonder if the soles were reverse if this might help with the inner traction issue.
- Running on morning grass also seems to be a problem if there is a lot of moisture.
- I did notice that tightening the rope more than normal helps keep the foot secure during wet conditions. I will probably have to try this a few more times to see if I can find the optimal lace-up.
- I don't have any data to go on right now. It is still quite warm here in Austin, Texas. Oh yea.
- Invisible Shoe are a fantastic deal.
- Definitely get the custom kit. It is actually quite fun designing your own shoe.
- You will most likely need thicker soles if you're going on rough terrain.
- Another neat factor is the minimalist look you have when running in these sandals. Observant people will often stare wondering what the heck you're running in.
- Invisible shoes also give you plenty of options on how to lace up the sandals. If something feels a little weird, you have many other options to choose from.
