It’s safe to say barefoot shoes (specifically Vibram FiveFingers) have changed my life. In particular the way I train and run.
They change your cadence and posture when running – resulting in shorter, lighter strides. This is particularly beneficial when it comes to sustainable fitness, as your knees don’t take as much of a pounding.
Also when squatting or deadlifting I find my base is firmer – previously only matched by taking off my shoes.
If you haven’t already done so, get some! And go for the craziest colour that feels comfortable 🙂
