What makes a comfortable shoe?

We couldn’t have said it better, Ben. Frankly, I’m stunned there aren’t airbag, hydraulics, and puppies in there somewhere. This image was an actual post by #nike describing what one of their upcoming shoes feels like. It's appalling the complete lack of regard that most modern shoe companies have towards the biomechanics of the human […]

Adventures with Chris & Roxy

We don’t run regularly. In fact, we don’t hike, bike, train, compete or do much of anything with regularity. Except yoga, standup paddle boarding and a few circus arts. We’re mostly explorers who are guilty of mashing up multiple activities into a weekend as we explore the National Parks in and around Utah. When we […]

Spreading the word about minimalist footwear…

When I’m on the track for a run, or in the gym, or even just walking down the street, people stop me, point at my Xero Shoes, and ask, “Where do you get those?!” There’s something about a minimalist shoe or sandal that catches people’s eye. There’s something about a running shoe that’s shaped like […]

Proper foot placement when running

If someone tells me they’re having almost any problem or issue with natural running, the odds are well over 75% that the issue comes from “overstriding.” Overstriding is when you land with your foot further out in front of your body than is necessary or ideal. Watch little kids run and they almost never do […]

Are your shoes killing you?

I’m a fan of debunking “common wisdom” and uncovering surprising truths. That’s what led me to take off my expensive running shoes in 2009 and see what happened if I let my feet move, bend, flex, and feel… naturally. For me, the rest is history. But for many, the idea that your feet can actually […]
