30 Bananas a Day!

Hello fellow fruitys!

I have been running barefoot for over a year now, and absolutely love it! I love feeling my feet touching the Earth! Although, very often people tell me that it is not good for me. I never know how to respond to them.. What do you tell people?

I run barefoot too. Tell them " what other animal needs shoes to run?" That's all I say and just keep going.

A good response! thank you very much!

oh wow! what a fact!! I never would have even imagined that! Although, it does make sense! Thank you very much for the response! It is appreciated! 

There was a doctor who was remarked how aboriginal children in Australia run around barefoot all day and they don't have any problems with their feet or arches - their feet are generally in perfect condition.  He said that by comparison Australians who wear shoes have much more problems with their feet.

Something to keep in mind! I always get told how bad it is for my feet, yet ive never had any problems! Thank you! 

No problems. Just the initial muscle soreness when I was first starting out. Getting back into barefoot is a slow process. Having to retrain the body how to move when it had been in shoes for so long. I do use a sandal called zero shoes. Their awesome look em up online. They still allow the freedom of movement but with a little extra protection agains sharp stones and possible glass. For only 20 bucks US there well worth trying.

I never have too much trouble with the rocks, but i always seem to come home with splinters in my feet! Those suckers are never fun to get out! I looked up the sandals, they are definitely worth the consideration. I will have to try them out! 

I would also check out Luna sandals. Might I recommend the hemp lacing. Very comfortable.

I started using five fingers footwear for running like 2 motnhs ago and i injured one of my knees because i did the transition very fast. So i searched more info about them and one of the advantages i learned was the issue about the absortion of the impact to the ground. Using the heel, the impact affects knees, hips and back. Using the middel/front of the feet it doesnt affect that much. Plus, you're naturally forced to keep the back straight. 

For me, this is one of the most important reasons. 

Good luck!

"In Christopher McDougal’s book “Born to Run” he tells of a small population in the Kalahari Desert of Africa that still practices a form of hunting known as persistence hunting. "

 This is probably why we are upright, naked apes that can run very long distances barefoot.

The porters in the Himalaya have toughened their feet up enough to take on very tough conditions barefoot: below - barefoot teenage Sherpa carrying load for a western expedition:  http://www.panoramio.com/photo/20428407
