1. Walking around barefoot begins to reconnect your brain with the sensory information coming from the soles of your feet.

    It allows your mind to adapt to this new information and ‘label it’ appropriately as non-threatening and useful as opposed to uncomfortable, painful and potentially damaging.

    When you can walk barefoot in a relaxed, rhythmic manner across a variety of surfaces both natural (grass, mud, sand) and man-made (concrete and tarmac) without hesitation and tension then your feet are ready for barefoot running.

    How to?
    Weight moves from heel to big toe
    Shorter strides
    Don’t look down
    Relaxed, symmetrical rhythm

    What could I be doing wrong?
    Long strides
    Leading with head
    Leading with pelvis
    Weight moving to outside of foot
