That's me on an early training run in Byron Bay when I weighed over 100 kg.

Barefoot means Barefoot

Reading an article on the BioMechanics of Barefoot Running I was reminded about the purpose of barefoot:

"Without sensory feedback between the sole of the foot and the surface of the ground…the runner may not have the complete neural cueing to convert to a forefoot strike pattern" 

In other words, barefoot means barefoot. I now carry Xeros on my runs and put them on only when the ground is too hot or too stony.
