Scarlett Johansson in Vibram FIveFingers Barefoot Running Shoes

Scarlett Johansson Is a Minimalist Runner — Are You?

Scarlett Johansson took to the streets in a pair of bright pink Vibram FiveFingers during a run with beau Sean Penn and friend Owen Wilson. The threesome made their way through a Los Angeles neighborhood together, and Scarlett demonstrated that like Reese Witherspoon, she is a midfoot striker. Striking the ground with your midfoot provides greater shock absorption than heel striking, and it puts less strain on your calf muscle and Achilles tendon. One of the benefits of running barefoot or with a minimalist running shoe is that it encourages you to improve your gait and posture. Looks like it might be working for Scarlett!

I bought my first pair of Vibrams last week and am in LOVE. Running in Vibrams makes me feel like a little kid again... or even better, a ninja.

I have the Brooks Green Vapor, My husband has Vibrams and he's obsessed. He's pretty much the fittest person I know as well. I'm not a fan of Scarlett.

I want VFF's... I've been running in just standard Nike running shoes for a year to get me into exercising/running, but now that I'm in love with running I'm dying to try the minimalistic approach!!!!

I wear New Balance WT01, which are lightweight and neutral - minimalist compared to the escalade sneakers most runners use. I love mine!
