Learning to run barefoot isn’t hard.
Find a nice smooth, hard surface. Take off your shoes. Go for a short run. See how you feel the next day. If it hurts, let yourself recover and then the next time you go out, do something different until you’re having fun. Then add distance slowly, using comfort and fun as your guide.
That said, it is helpful to get a little guidance from someone who’s been down the path before. That can speed up the learning curve. That’s why I wrote the articles in the Discover Your Feet section, above (the navigation menu).
And that’s why, in this 10 part video series, I’ll be addressing the myths, lies, and TRUTH about making a comfortable and enjoyable transition to running, walking, and hiking barefoot.
I hope it helps you get out and Feel The Freedom, Feel The Fun, and Feel The World.
I’d love to hear what you thought about this series. Leave your comments below.
And I’d REALLY love it if you shared it with others who might enjoy it.

I have flat foot does it matters

Flat feet are not inherently problematic (contrary to what orthotics manufacturers want you to believe).
I will join with Steven on this one. I have relatively flat feet. I have also had ankle surgery. I have back issues. I am 71 years old. I switched to minimalist running at least 7 or more years ago. I continue to run, even totally barefoot. Love my running, no issues. Love the Z-Treks, love the originals, love the whole idea of running barefoot style. I do try to avoid single large stones on pavement. :-). Steven has a facebook video of my interview with him about barefoot style. The audio isn’t great but the context is on point about the running “style”. Think like a kid, run like a kid! Go barefoot!
And what about people with Type I diabetes? Not a single mention of it anywhere. I am very interested, but want to know more about them and it is impossible to buy a new shoe when you have diabetes from the internet.
