We have seen several runners who are into barefoot running in local races. Back in Janauary of this year, we have posted an article about the benefits of running barefoot in a breakthough research and we provided some tips for those who wanted to start barefoot running.
Vibram has been providing the experience of freedom and the joy of going barefoot with their award winning Vibram FiveFingers.
