Slow and steady is the way to go with transitioning to barefoot running, barefoot living. (I run in minimalist shoes, walk in either minimalist sandals, shoes, or actual barefoot at home) My journey to living “barefoot” started about 3-4 weeks ago. Over the last few days here is what I’ve experienced and how I’ve handled it.
I just recently began trying the barefoot method of running and I can say that I do like it a lot. I was open minded about trying it, but I wasn’t tied to the idea that I would love it. I’ve been using Merrell’s Barefoot Run Vapor Glove. As these are my first pair of minimalist running shoes, I don’t have anything to compare it to except traditional shoes. But I will give you my impressions of this brand of shoe and also tell you how I have made the transition.
