Xmas stocking special: Barefoot shoes

Nakefit foot sticker

Last summer might seem like a distant memory, but take a moment to remember the pleasures barefoot walking – a pursuit made considerably easier in some environments by Nakefit – easily-removable stickers that are waterproof and protect against slipping, cuts…and hot sand.

Barefoot running

Barefoot runners land on the middle or front of their foot. Running in padded shoes alters this pattern, making the runner more prone to land heavily on their heel before rolling onto the forefoot.

Humans had been running barefoot comfortably and safely for thousands of years before the advent of trainers. Proponents of barefoot running claim they are far less likely to suffer from injury. In fact, a study in 1991 stated that “wearers of expensive running shoes promoted as having additional features that protect (cushioning or ‘pronation correction’) are injured significantly more frequently than runners wearing inexpensive shoes”.
