How To Run In Barefoot Shoes

News / July 7, 2022

If you are a runner and love the comfort and feeling of being barefoot, you may want to try out a pair of barefoot shoes. Unlike a traditional running shoe that has cushioning and a thick sole, a barefoot shoe has no cushioning and a very thin sole that provides protection. These minimalist shoes promote a more natural gait and improved ground feel. The zero-drop sole keeps your toes and heel on the same level to the ground, just as if you were barefoot. They help lead to a more natural action of forefoot-striking that can result in a more efficient forward stride. Studies have shown that this puts less stress on your joints than when you wear traditional running shoes that lead to a more jarring heel strike.

Many runners that have transitioned to barefoot shoes have experienced improved stamina, fewer injures and less overall pain. However, there is a certain technique to running in barefoot shoes. There is also a transition period that is needed. Feet may be weak from years of wearing stiff, overprotective shoes and it will take time to build up the strength in your feet.

So how do you run in barefoot shoes?

  1. Start slowly. It’s a process, not a race. The transition could take months! Start with short runs and gradually increase your distance.
  2. Start by running on softer surfaces such as a park, beach or football field.
  3. Land on the forefoot or midfoot instead of your heel. Too much on the forefoot though can give you sore calf muscles.
  4. Land as softly as possible. Focus on running quietly.
  5. Take shorter strides.
  6. Stay more upright, keeping your shoulders, hips, and feet in line.
  7. Be aware how you feel. Make adjustments as needed. If something hurts, stop.
