Article: The Once and Future Way to Run
This article is a good summary of the history and benefits of the barefoot running style. Here at CFI, we teach a Pose Method-style of running. The most important thing about running correctly is not the types of shoes you have. In fact most “running specialty stores” (even those that conduct a stride analysis of your running) will almost always recommend a shoe that you don’t need. The type of shoes you run in are not as important as the running technique you use. If you have bad running technique in bad shoes, then you’re going to have bad running technique in good shoes. Shoes won’t magically fix your problem. The key is to run correctly; and simply throwing out your shoes and committing to running barefoot won’t solve your problem either–you’ll just get injured faster. You have to teach your body to move correctly. Once you do that you’ll be amazed at how fast and far you can go with little effort.
