Look, I’m the first one to say that barefoot running isn’t for every person under every circumstance. Granted, I’ll say that it’s great for almost everyone, almost all of the time.
But every now and then, you need a pair of shoes.
Certain restaurants or businesses require SOME form of footwear (one of the reasons we developed Xero Shoes, in fact).
As a sprinter, I wear sprinting spikes when I need to run full speed on a track.
But this may be the best reason to wear shoes: When you need to open a bottle of wine and don’t have a corkscrew… or just want to show off in a geeky-nerdy way:
Oh, and if you’re out on the trail and don’t even have a wall, how ’bout a tree? (BTW, this video is WAAAAAAY funnier than the first ).
Will this work with a pair of Xero Shoes? Who’s going to be the first one to make a video and answer that question?
