You may have noticed from previous posts (and if you come to my classes) that I’m a big proponent of foot care. Our feet are our foundation and have a huge impact on the rest of our body structure and how we move. Here’s one of my previous posts about the feet.
Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about minimal footwear so I decided to do an entire episode on the topic. I’m talking to a few experts to get their opinions and I’ve arranged for some great giveaways for you – FREE minimal shoes from brands like Vivobarefoot and Skora and some FREE foot care products that I like (and my clients love too). Winners will be chosen at random from my facebook page so be sure to keep an eye out there when the podcast comes out.
I personally am a fan of minimal footwear and mostly wear shoes that have wider toe boxes, flexible soles and minimal heels. I also do a lot of barefoot exercises and stretches to try to keep my feet in shape. I don’t run in minimal shoes (I’m just not a runner), but I do walk and train in them (actually I train barefoot when possible). Minimal shoes aren’t necessarily right for everyone though! It’s best to consult with a pro to learn if they’re right for you and how best to gradually transition into them.
I’m curious – do you have any questions about the feet and minimal footwear? If you do, post your questions here or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my best to get you an answer.
