I had chronic knee pain and shin splints for years, on and off, and transitioning to minimalist shoes ended it all for me. There are other injuries that can occur, however since it puts a lot of stress on your Achilles and calves.
I tried going back to "regular" running shoes and using the same midfoot strike technique, but found I did not enjoy running nearly as much. Once you run in sandals, it's hard to put your foot back in a normal shoe, even Vibrams.
