Video: Sh*t Barefoot Runners Say

Barefoot runners are few but growing in numbers, and one of them has a lot to say about the peculiar style of running.

In this video poking fun at barefoot runners, Steven Sashen, himself a barefoot sprinter and owner of Xero Shoes, tries to convince us to get rid of those “foot coffins” we call shoes.

Inspired by Chris McDougall’s 2009 best-seller¬†Born to Run,¬†which hit bookstore shelves five years ago today, Xero Shoes are a modern take on the Tarahumara’s running huaraches made out of a sheet of tire rubber to go under the foot held up by string.
