Yelling Stop: Modified New Balance MT100s

This guy had his New Balance running shoes modified to be more barefoot like. Most interesting is how every time he wore them his old injuries came back. I had the same experienced with many shoes over the years. 

I ran in these pretty regularly in the winter, but found after a while that they gave me runner’s knee.  Reverting to Vibrams cured the runner’s knee immediately, going back to the 100s brought it back.   Even wearing the Russell mocs was better on my knee, despite the weight.  My colleague, owner of the unmodified pair above, had the same thing happen to him, and I’ll note that Anton Krupicka, the athlete for which these were designed, has been battling a similar issue for quite some time.
