Sh*t Barefoot Runners Say…

You’re not a real barefoot runner if you haven’t said one of these ;-)

  • http://fatasskombat.wordpress.com Meghan

    lol okay that’s pretty damn funny

  • Tom

    That shit is funny as hell too! I like it! But man my calves ache like a mofo after running a mile and half’s worth of calf raises! Besides, Vibram sounds too much like Vibrator.

  • Matt

    Haha that’s great… I totally just corrected my stepfather the other day… He said it like “vy bron” and I’m like “it’s Vibram”… Just like what you said… Haha that’s too funny.
    And I’m more of a “normal shoes hurt my feet now” saying, kind of person! And it’s TRUE!!! HA!

  • http://robssurfreport.wordpress.com Rob Ross

    That’s hilarious, you just earned bonus points in my estimation Steve-o, and as soon as Spring arrives in the frozen North I’m going to buy me some new hibachis.

    • Steven

      Rob, the correct pronunciation is: hammockees… or hammer-cheese… or…

  • http://computertutorflorida.com Scott

    Hey, I have said a few of those things myself!

  • Clyde Cambridge

    And you still didn’t pronounce Tarahumara right! Lol. Except for your explitive at the end, I was pleasantly surprised to find no “beep” words. Instead, the whole thing is almost a 2 minute mocumentary on some of the points of barefoot running. Btw, was the title inspired by some of the most watched videos recently on YouTube?

    Thanks for the laugh!
    FIAT LUX!

    • Steven

      You might want to listen/watch again… unless you think “Geez” or “Oww” are expletives, the video is totally Rated G. ;-)

  • Don

    ROTFL, I use chia seeds to thicken stew. I get the smell out of my fivefinger washing them with tide no perfume stain packets. I have not been in “real” shoes in 2.5 years.

  • Jonny

    Nice job, Barefoot Mel Gibson.

  • Rick

    Very good Steven. I loved that.

  • Justin

    Very funny and relevant video. Thanks for the laugh !

    Justin from France

  • Michael

    Totally Awesome Dude!
    Always welcome a good laugh.
    I’m still trying to figure out how to lace these suckers :-)
    Can I wear them without the lace!!! (;-)

  • Jean

    LOL. That was so funny. A really good laugh. Something we tend to forget to do. Thanks. Do more of this!

  • Jean

    That was great! Good job, Steven. Pretty much sums up everything I’ve heard said about barefooting/minimalist.

  • http://livesimplylive.com Anton

    That was great, thanks! BTW, have you read “Born to Run”? Haha!

  • (Barefoot)Jennybee

    Love it! I laughed out loud!

  • Steve Hoskins

    Freaking hilarious!!!

    gravel, gravel, gravel!!! Ha!

  • Barefoot Christine

    Right on! I’ve said sooo many of these things! I’m still laughing! Thanks Steven!!!!!

  • http://adventuresinwoodworking.com Eric

    “The guy at the shoe store said if I wanted to run barefoot, these are the best shoes to wear.”

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! Classic and so true!!!

  • Mark

    Love this! So true about the chia seeds! And the shoes! OMG!

  • http://see-slowmo-run.blogspot.com.au/ Slowmo

    Mmm… I just showed this to my family and they laughed a little _too_ much. Can’t think why…

  • http://accountablility.wordpress.com Emily

    I said this one on my run the other day: gravel, Gravel, GRAVEL!!

    Next time I run the route, I’ll runn the cul de sac instead of across the street. LOVE it!

  • Nate

    I will never again refer to myself as “Barefoot Nate” without snickering at myself just a little. Thanks.

  • Barefoot So-and-so

    “I can’t even fit into normal shoes any more!”
    “…foot coffins…!”
    “Have you read born to run?”
    “Have you tried chia seeds?”
    Haha… this hit TOO CLOSE TO HOME. Ouch, Steven, you’re gonna make me self-conscious or something. :)
    And, great acting, BTW. (you WERE acting, right?!)

    • Steven

      In the words of Jon Lovitz… I was AAACTTTIIINGGG!

  • http://bibnumber666.blogspot.com Enric

    I have actually developed an allergy from walking barefoot:
    An analysis confirmed that I am allergic to wood, specially when combined with Newton’s Second Law and in the dark..

    • Steven

      Ouchoo

  • Adolfo Neto

    Very funny!
    Did Chris McDougall watch this video?
    Someone should tell him…

  • http://www.bornbarefoot.co.uk/james James BB

    “heel stricker” Ha I totally to that, with the same smug face.

  • Zoe Morosini

    Taraharumi…Haracheez…Veebrum…LOL
    Just what I needed to get through the week!
    I have all these &*$#& shoes to “barefoot” run.

  • Randy Kreill., Beavercreek OH

    Totally or mostly NAKED feet cause people to say funny sh#t 4 shur. I’m wearing my tommyhoudini hairycheeses outside regularly in Ohio this Winter. The looks and comments from those uninformed, regarding the proven conspiracy of most shoe makers to detroy two legged runner’s body parts, are priceless.

    Compliments to whomever shot your video.

  • Adam

    That was totaly funny, and so true. When you said “I can’t even fit in real shoes anymore” I almost busted out laughing. I am a shoe salesman and tell customers that all the time. My pastor gives me a hard time about selling shoes when I don’t even wear them that often.

  • http://www.coffeemojo.ie Barefoot Kev

    Am I weird or something? I thought this one was funnier than the follow-up. Maybe I just need to do a few miles barefoot……..

  • Ellen

    That was laugh-out-loud funny, Steven. Thank you for sharing that.

  • Barefoot Karen

    I was planning to watch the Academy Awards ceremony tonight, but I’m afraid it may be a letdown after watching this video!

    Has Billy Crystal read Born to Run?

  • Ian

    Haha, so true. Could relate to this one for sure. Well done Steven.

  • Tommy DaComic

    Steven, funny funny stuff! I know nothing of running barefooted or shod. When I was a kid, a goat chased me once, so I did run then at least that time.
    Mind those toes, Man & keep it up!

  • Richard

    HAHA!!! – too Funny!
    I Can’t let any of my friends see this because I’m too close to this stereo-type and the mocking will never end

      Remember, if you can’t laugh at yourself, you aren’t joining in on what all your friends are already doing ;-)
