My farrier used to barefoot run, he's taken a year off, he is ridiculously fit still.
IMO I like those fun barefoot shoes, I need to buy a pair. I know guys who lift in them and prefer them to lifting shoes because they really use the foot to support itself.
I do lots of yoga which is barefoot and has helped my feet a lot. I have a stitch of fasciitis that's cropped up in my two month long hiatus, but already after a few classes it's better.
I would say to build up to those barefoot shoes, do some yoga, certain poses are really going to help your foot strength and flexibility. Posted via Mobile Device
