When you shop for a pair of running shoes chances are you will look for support and comfort, something that will be shock absorbing, aids motion and often have words like “natural” featured somewhere in their description, although this is a common approach to running it is not the only way. Barefoot running is essentially the complete opposite to the cushioned, springy running shoes you may be used to, but it doesn’t mean you have to expose your bare skin to the broken glass and sharp stones whilst running around your local park.
