Video: Benefits of Barefoot Running

by Neil on August 2, 2010

Funnily enough it turns out that our feet have evolved for walking and running and that fancy shoes actually cause injuries. In other news… hands turn out to be really good for picking up and holding things.

Barefoot running is popular in the the primal living / palaeolithic eating scene because it avoids stress injuries to the heel, knees and back. Some people wanted the benefits of bare foot running without having to worry about stepping on sharp or other unpleasant objects so they came up with the ‘Vibram Five Fingers Shoe’.

Here’s a review of the Vibram Five Fingers by chiropractor Dr. Bingham. Check out all the different colours and styles below the video.
