Barefoot Running

I would like to introduce you to my latest purchase!

Studies have recently shown, some running shoes can alter your running stride too much and cause issues later in life.Barefoot shoes (toe-shoes) running enables your body/feet to produce it's natural running stride while still protecting your feet from the nasties of the road.

I have recently become a fan of running! a couple of months ago, you couldn't get me into runners, I was fine with walking,  but it wasn't until I started to jog with my sister of a morning when I started to enjoy it, I loved the feeling it gave me when I achieved a particular distance or time. I can't wait to be one of those sexy runners you see on the side of the road wearing nothing but a pair of runners and shorts early of a morning. (got a long way to go)  :) . At the moment I am mainly a treadmill runner, I understand it removes the freedom that running on a street can bring, but I have no doubt that one day when I am confident enough I will remove myself from the belt and onto the beaten-track (or pavement).

I haven't yet had a go to see how the shoes behave when I jog, but I did try them on and wear them around the house for a couple of hours.... I'll keep you updated.

I purchased mine off a store on eBay, However here is the website for the product.

I have noticed that a lot of other shoe makers have been following the trend, with adidas's realise of the AdiPure Toe-shoes:
