What Are The Benefits Of Running In Barefoot Shoes?

News / August 15, 2020

With so many different running shoes on the market today, it is difficult to choose the right ones. But did you know that some of those shoes may be causing you injuries? Most running shoes are built with extra cushioning, arch support and a thick inflexible sole. These types of shoes promote a heel-strike which can be jarring to the joints. The impact sends shock waves through the body from the feet all the way up to the lower back which can result in injury.
Studies have shown that running in barefoot shoes (also known as minimalist or zero-drop shoes) can lead to fewer injuries. Leguano Shoes are revolutionary barefoot shoes that were designed in Germany by movement specialists. Let’s have a look at some of their benefits.

1. Toe Strike

Running in barefoot shoes causes the runner to land with more of a toe-strike. This leads to a more efficient and smoother stride. It causes less stress on your joints and leads to fewer injuries.

2. Posture

Wearing a barefoot shoe puts the body in a more natural alignment. This leads to better posture and less strain on your joints.

3. Stronger Feet

Wearing shoes with a thick sole, causes the feet to weaken from lack of movement; it is almost like wearing casts on your feet. Barefoot shoes help to strengthen the feet, re-developing the muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

4. Protection

Some runners like to run au naturel, in their bare feet. Wearing barefoot shoes will give you the same feeling but will offer protection from hot pavement and sharp objects.

5. Balance

Wearing barefoot shoes allows you to feel the ground beneath your feet. This increases sensory perception and leads to better balance.

6. Reflexology

We have many pressure points in our feet that are connected with different parts of the body. This can lead to better circulation, improved energy, and better organ function.

7. Wide Toe Box

Feet can move freely in barefoot shoes. Toes can spread out giving you a more solid base.

8. Lightweight

Barefoot shoes are so lightweight, you’ll feel like you are wearing nothing on your feet. You will feel like you can run faster because nothing is weighing you down.

9. Non-Slip Sole

You may find yourself running in slippery conditions. The non-slip soles will give you grip in wet and muddy conditions.

It is important to transition slowly from your old shoes to Leguanos. You will need to give your feet time to strengthen to prevent injuries. Start by wearing them around the house and gradually increase the time you spend in them. You will enjoy the freedom Leguano Barefoot Shoes give your feet!
