I had to share with you..... Just got back from a run with my boots and made it to the three km point. I had to stop running almost a year ago due to an IT band injury. I couldn't run because I was making the injury worse. I went to physio and massage and it felt a lot better. My doctor said I may not be able to run again. I went to some Bounce classes and really like the boots. I even took the instructors class. I bought a pair a month and half ago and have been running three times a week, up to 3 KMs and NO pain. At least not until I tried a run without the boots. No more running shoes for me. My goal is to get to the 10KMs that I was running before my injury. Thanks to both of you.
