Buy a shoe like Nike Free that provides a barefoot type of feel while protecting your feet. 4.

(Walk in them first before running around as they take time to get used to). So now that you've had a bit of caution here are a few advantages. 1. Barefoot running costs less energy.

According to Divert et. Al., 2005 and Squadrone and Gallozzi, 2009, running barefoot has been shown to use about 5% less energy than shod running. 2. Develops muscle strength and proprioceptive gains in the legs, feet and hips that we wouldn't otherwise develop in shoes. 3. Helps strengthen the foot so that it pronates less.
