With ambitions to train harder and get faster, Tony moved to Massachusetts and started training with a few top runners on Boston’s north shore. Unfortunately, his goals were often thwarted by injury, over-training, or ill-fitting shoes. Like many runners, he began working in the shoe industry where he learned everything he could about making footwear.
A nagging running injury leads Tony to suspect that unnecessary bulk may be disrupting runners’ natural form. He then helps launch a very different type of footwear, Vibram FiveFingers.
