Newton Shoes and Chi Running

Rich bought me these fancy Newton running shoes for my birthday and I tried them out for the first time this week on one of my shorter runs. The shoes are extremely light and designed to change your running form so that you run more on the midfoot. The alleged advantages are less pain, better form, improved times, etc. The overall concept is that the shoes allow you to mimic the advantages of barefoot running (chi running). Combined with the book my brother recently sent to me, “Chi Running,” I’m all set to try this new experience. Since we’re mid-marathon training, I plan to evolve slowly (sticking to the Asics for long runs so far). But I’m hoping this will help me hit that “feeling great” stride that I’m seeking on those long runs. Have you tried Newtons or the Chi philosophy? Rich loves his and is a convert. Let us know what you think!
