This has the feel of a total fad. Hot pavement, glass, rocks and everything else. I think this is just something to talk about to sell magazines.
I was wrong. Saw a guy hiking the Grand Canyon in those barefoot Nike things. He said it was awesome.
I can't help but to laugh looking at those shoes! How ridiculous! If Matthew McConaughey wears them I guess why shouldn't everyone, rrrright?
Caught this article on Yahoo about all the celebs who are barefoot running. Must make it real...
Some decent guidelines to review in the article.
No, not at all. Where would you even run barefoot? It is a simply silly concept in my opinion, but interesting to read about none the less. I definitely give credit to those who can do it. I can't even imagine the pain, not to mention the calluses! Check out this study funded by Harvard University: http://barefootrunning.fas.harvard.edu/2FootStrikes&RunningShoes.html. Who knew "heel striking" was so controversial?! I like my running shoes and I'll stick to them, heel striking and all!
