The message here is pretty clear -- find a shoe that lets you run comfortably and injury free and then go out and run a lot.  Whether that shoe is an Army boot, rubber sandals or squishy pillows, the end result is the same. Goes to show that the running shoe industry is all about fashion and hype. As PT Barum said, there's a sucker born every minute.

I think you're in violent agreement with article. Of course you need a shoe that fits for YOU so you can run without pain. But whether you are comfortable in a cushy shoe or barefoot is totally up to you -- and it makes no difference in performance compared to other more important factors like training.

Let's see, the article is based on actual research. How much scientific evidence are you providing? Oh that's right, none.

Why would a naturally strong structure like an arch need support.? Build up your foot strength and you won't have this problem.

@MichaelAndrea How is this trying to promote a particular shoe when it says shoes don't matter?  If anything, it shows that it's stupid to pay more than about $40 for a shoe, since cheap shoes last as long as expensive shoes, and there's no real benefit from shoes. Why not go cheap?

Sparks is definitely not anything like hashtag in Twitter. From what I can tell, there no way to get a feel for trending topics across a mass population in G+. In this regard, Twitter has value.

I agree that the140 character limit is now pointless, and circles will make it much easier to set up relevant flows of information than possible using Twitter or even something like Hoot Suite. And the Google+ app for Android is nice.

The one aspect of Twitter that I'm not seeing in Google+ is hashtags. It's really useful to set up search on a particular hashtag and watch the flow of comments. I'm not sure how something like that can be set up in Google+, although obviously its still early.
