A Barefoot Story by Bruce Tulloh

http://www.vivobarefoot.com/discover/get-involved/barefoot-blog/august-2015/a-barefoot-story

Michael Swinton "Bruce" Tulloh is an long-distance runner from England, who still competes occasionally, though now in his late-seventies. Once named the original Forrest Gump, he tells us his barefoot story:

Serious running started for me in the spring of 1956, when I came back to Devon after my National Service. We lived in the seaside village of Instow, within a hundred yards of the beach. I was already a committed runner, having won the Hong Kong 5000m championships the year before, and I had a place at Southampton University in September. Luckily, I got the job of Night Porter at the Marine Hotel. This meant that I was on duty from 7 in the evening to 1 a.m.. I walked home, got to bed at 1.30 and got up at 9, with the whole day free for training, and the obvious place to run was on the beach.

Read the whole story:

Between 75% and 80% of the adult population have some sort of foot problem regardless of all the benefits promised by shoes with cushioned heels and arch support.
Our philosophy is simple. Shoes are needed for puncture and thermal protections, the rest our feet can do themselves.

Act your shoe size! It is good for you.. Shoes that are too small for you deform and weaken your feet.

Bunions are common. 55% of women have bunions approximately 9 times more than men. The most common cause of bunions is the prolonged wearing of poorly fitting shoes, usually shoes with a narrow, pointed toe box that squeezes the toes into an unnatural position. Be barefoot! #forfootsake  www.vivobarefoot.com/strongerfeet

The period when humans were living in steep rugged terrain may have been a key evolutionary step in walking upright and becoming ‘agile, sprinting, enduring, grasping, jumping two-legged athletes of today’.

Footwear is a relatively recent development. Humans started wearing shoes, initially, for thermal and mechanical foot protection. Over the years, we got used to wearing footwear with padded soles and arch support, and modern day foot problems began to develop. According to B. Zipfel and L. R. Berger a number of studies suggest that the habitually unshod foot of a Zulu, barefoot skeleton was healthier when compared to the shoe-wearing pastoralists.

Transition to natural movement gradually with barefoot shoes for the city, and learn to walk before you can run.

Many men might find women with small feet more attractive, however study shows that Karo Batak men (people from North Sumatra, Indonesia that have little or no influence from Western media) prefer women with bigger feet.
Don't be ashamed of big or small feet, don't wear uncomfortable shoes, look after your feet!

For that price, it'd better be built in the US/EU.
