Are you eager to try our barefoot running? Barefoot running is fast becoming popular as the strategy of champion runners.
Runners who run barefoot tend to land on their forefoot or midfoot, with the landing point nearer to the body’s center of mass, and hence minimize chances of running related foot injuries. Barefoot running encourages the runner to use the natural shock-absorbing, spring-like mechanism of the muscles, ligaments and tendons within and around the foot, the ankle, the knee, and the hip. As a result, it does not create an impact transient force spike through joints and causes less collision force to the feet than running in cushioned shoes.
If these benefits have you intrigued, go ahead and try these 5 barefoot running shoes.
