|Trust me, the bottoms look just as intact.
1. The Hoka Stinson Evo B trail shoes are a great fit for me.
2. The DryMax socks that I wear religiously on any run.
3. Taping the spots on my feet (Heel and ball of my foot) with Elastikon tape with the Mastisol adhesive beforehand.
4. Redoing the tape on my forefoot after 61 miles and changing into dry shoes and socks. (Thanks Simon.)
I have to admit, it is nice not having my feet trashed the week after a race. Not only that it is also nice to not have to look forward to weeks with huge chunks of flesh falling off of my feet during the healing process either.
None of my toenails are going to be lost either. Hell I have only lost one toenail ever from running and that was from the 1998 Pikes Peak Marathon when I kicked the everloving crap out of a rock up by the A-Frame on the descent portion of the run. That's it.
|I ran 100 miles and all I got was this one lousy little blister. (If I had retaped that on the inbound at Twin Lakes I might not have even gotten this one.)
|That is the original sole... is says Vibram made for Vasque.
