"You feelin' like you runnin' huh? Now you know how we feel."
IT'S A MOVEMENT!!! (...literally). Barefoot running has become very fashionable among a certain cabal of runners. It's purpose is to achieve a far more primal experience (THIS IS FOR WARRIORS ONLY!!!). Barefoot running allows us to revert back to the more natural human mechanics of running.
When we run with footwear we tend the lead with our heel. This creates a great impact. When we run barefoot, we tend the lead with our forefoot which is far less impactful. This intern leads to the diminished likelihood of certain injuries. If the popularity of barefoot running persists, it may obfuscate the need for footwear altogether. (Running just got a whole lot cheaper...)
The summertime is fast approaching. If you truly desire to bring your sexy back... why not go bare???
I run therefore I am...
