Barefoot Running - Are Your Shoes / Orthotics Hurting Your Feet?
In this Gym Chat I interview Steven Sashen, the founder of Xero Shoes® ... a modern spin on the traditional barefoot running sandal — durable, stylish and affordable — and so light and low-profile it’s like you’re not wearing anything. Yet, you get a strong layer of protection, your feet and legs work the way nature intended, your posture can naturally realign, and you awaken your senses and stimulate your brain.
We touch on several important topics related to Barefoot Running:
-The top problems people have when trying barefoot running (and their solutions)
-The three key moves that let you easily and comfortably run barefoot
-The 4 types of barefoot runners — knowing which you are changes EVERYTHING
-Why “minimalist” shoes are not the same as barefoot (so if you tried minimal and it didn’t work, here’s why)
-How being barefoot can help if you have ankle, knee, hip, back, or even neck pain… and plantar fasciitis
-The “foam mattress” theory about why cushioning and orthotics may be harming you.
Most importantly, how to have FUN while you explore natural movement!
