The Barefoot Running Revolution

By Gerard @presurfer
The Barefoot Running Revolution
Throughout most of human history, running was barefoot or in thin-soled shoes such as moccasins, a practice that continues in some parts of the world, including Kenya or among the Tarahumara people of northern Mexico. Proponents of the barefoot movement argue that barefoot running is healthier for feet and reduces risk of chronic injuries.
This infographic shows you the history of barefoot running and how this phenomenon can make you a better runner.
