Hello. I am more and more interested in minimalist running. Currently training for a 13 mile road run (my second) and hope to do some 50K trail runs next year (ps. I've hiked this much back to back with a fast pack previously).
Okay my feet: I have the pleasure of living in Boulder and have been able to get excellent help at the Newton store. Danny noticed, what I think is referred to as a Forefoot Varus, and he adjusted my powerstep inserts with wedges under the ball of my big toe.
Amazing: perfect, like no knee or back pain; better posture standing and walking, etc. The first moment he slide a sample piece to level my foot it was like a static noise in my head turned off and I didn't even know it was on...
Fast forward: two pairs of newtons done and I realize they aren't for me (various reasons). On my long backpacking trips, Inov-8 were great fit. So I'd like to keep with forefoot, but not sure how to address forefoot varus. On shorter barefoot runs, I'm not terribly concerned. But for trail runs and anything over 5 miles, I'd like foot covering
So question: running with a 0mm // 3mm cushion , is there a way to address the Forefoot Varus, or will minimalist running support it. Since the newton shop helped my fit with an adaption of an insert, I'm guessing that isn't an option for a minimalist shoe.
I read an older article on this sight. Yet I can't find a more recent conversation on this topic.
