To bare or not to bare.

To vibrams users: The streets have evolved from grass and dirt to hot, unforgiving concrete.

– People are heavier and they train 30 min to 1hr at a time non-stop at a fast clip. During the rest of the day, they sit around and do email or watch TV.

– Long ago, people walked everywhere so their bodies were better conditions – joints, muscles, core, tendons. Everything was stronger.

– Ancient feet were different because of use from birth. Ever seen the Australian aboriginies’ feet? Modern feet are delicate, softer, and narrower.

– Running injuries are more complex than Vibram lets on. Bad form, weekend warrior habits, excessive training, etc. Running shoes can only do so much.
