To me, the “Nada” sounds like the name of a fake product from one of those Saturday Night Live commercials.
I can imagine the marketing meeting now…”Well, we can’t call it the ‘Nothing,’ guys, because who wants to pay for nothing? I know, how about we just use the Spanish word? Then ‘nothing’ will seem seductive and spicy and awesome!”
So the name is kind of dumb, but then again, a lot of their names are funny (Hot Sauce?), so maybe it’s a joke.
Regardless, Somnio won me over on the Nada. How?
With (a) some really nice packaging, (b) a DVD “owner’s manual” with exercises and a plan to help make the transition to minimalist running gradual, safe and painless, and (c) a pair of shoes that truly delivers on achieving a balance somewhere between practicality and barefoot running.
I decided that a video review would be more helpful than a written one, so here you go! I used the Vibram Five Fingers and Brooks Green Silence to give some context. Take a look and let me know what you think.
(And just to be clear, Somnio sent me these shoes for free to review on my site. I think I’m supposed to tell you that so I don’t get locked up.)
Thanks to Somnio for sending me the shoes to review.
P.S. Let me know what you think about video posts so I can decide whether to do more of them. Yay or nay?
Vegan Supplements: Which Ones Do You Need?
Written by Matt Frazier
I’m here with a message that, without a doubt, isn’t going to make me the most popular guy at the vegan potluck.
But it’s one I believe is absolutely critical to the long term health of our movement, and that’s why I’m committed to sharing it. Here goes…
Vegans need more than just B12.
Sure, Vitamin B12 might be the only supplement required by vegans in order to survive. But if you’re anything like me, you’re interested in much more than survival — you want to thrive.
So what else do vegans need?
