I would like to sincerely thank Barefoot Store Singapore again for giving me the opportunity to try out their EVO Barefoot.
It certainly not easy to run a full marathon with EVO Barefoot because this is my first time going such distance with a minimalist shoe. But I have to say the experience is good. The shoe is light allowing me to lift up my legs with less effort.
Also I had my socks on during the start of the race, but i removed it because II feel that without the socks it allows me to feel the ground > This is important because usually at 30KM I will hit my peak or I would start to stoned but with EVO as it allows me to feel the ground I was able to enjoy the run much better as compared to normal shoes.
However, because this is a minimalist shoe… there is not much support for my arch especially I am a serious flat footer. During some part of the run, I did feel aching around the arch area but this was solved some stretching on the feet. So too all flat footers I believe with sufficient training this would be a great alternative shoe for flat footers because it is so hard to find good looking and light flat foot shoes.
