Unfinished Man – Form Reviewed
This review of the Form from Unfinished Man is not a runner’s review, but from a parkourist point of view. Parkour is a physical discipline of movement focused on overcoming obstacles.
What can a runner take from a review of the Form by someone that does parkour? It is that the shoe is very capable and functional when it comes to dealing with movements and situations that require good ground feel (proprioception) and stability. Many believe shoes with a minimal heel to toe drop and less material in the sole allow your feet to feel and move more naturally compared to a traditional running shoe.
“I always find it difficult to objectively review minimalist running shoes, because by their very nature, I feel they are, in general, far better than “traditional” running shoes by being so much thinner and lighter. Having said that, I enjoyed reviewing the FORM more than any other running shoe in recent memory.”
