What might confuse some people is that I'm doing it barefoot. Well, not literally barefoot, since I wear my Vibram FiveFingers to protect against sharps and the like. But my toe shoes don't provide shock absorption at all - which is the point, really.
|Also good for training your martial arts.|
No shock absorption? Isn't that dangerous? Aren't I going to ruin my feet?
Instead of getting into a long winded description, let me send you to a great article over at Art of Manliness where they talk about the logic behind it, the method, and the pros and cons.
Barefoot running might not be the best for everyone, but for those serious about jogging, or who mix running and martial arts training in the same session, I recommend doing your research and giving it a try.
