Anyone else like to run barefoot?... I get the weirdest looks but I love it lol. It feels much more natural. I'm not sure if there's any health benefits to it, though

Well there really are no health benefits from what I know but that would only make you feet more rough a good solution for people that like running with there bear feet would be to buy skeletoes shoes the feel like if you had nothing on. I use them and there awesome highly recommend.

I bought Vivobarefoot shoes because I would be willing to go out in socks if that was socially acceptable. One of my best investments as of yet, even my mom has turned into a fan :)

Yeah, Makayla... I do all my training in barefoot trainers, Vibrams KSO. All martial arts barefoot. It's the much more natural way to move.

Running barefoot can damage your feet. The way your foot lands on the ground its the equivalent of stomping with twice your body weight.

But people ran barefoot for thousands of years without damage :) After running barefoot for a while your foot will adapt and land in the right spot to avoid hurting

Yes, you do have to adapt to a different style of running with the minimalist shoe... The heel to toe strike won't do. You will get hurt. Once you've gotten that down though, the benefits of barefoot training are too many for me to cite in these few lines.

Love barefoot (no minimalistic shoes, just barefoot), but had to learn the toes to heel landing. "Born to Run" is such an inspiration! I don't run much though.
