What's Wrong With This Picture?


EMS minimalist ad

There's something egregiously wrong with this photograph of a woman running in Vibram Five Fingers in a flyer for minimalist shoes I just received from Eastern Mountain Sports. Can you spot it?

As far as "barefoot" running helping to "help stretch and strengthen new muscles" goes, I know what they're trying to say but that's not the way to say it. De-conditioned as they may be, those muscles aren't materializing out of nothing. They've just been underutilized.
