Videos comparing a normal shoe vs Vibram Fivefingers vs Barefoot

I was surfing through the net about barefoot running, when I cam across this site.

It gives a comparison  of a normal shoe vs Vibram Fivefingers vs Barefoot in a slow motion video shot.

Here are the videos.

Personally I feel that when the runner transit to barefoot running, Heel Strike is gone. Also I notice that in the first Video, the reason for the heel strike may be cause by the heel cushion. This is because it seems that the thick cushion cause the “Heel” to reach the ground first. Maybe that is the reason why I am suffering from Heel Strike?….
