Neat article on “Fox Walking”

I just found this interesting article about walking the “fox walk”.  I haven’t read it fully, but I thought I would link to it.  I don’t think bunions are caused by shoes necessarily, but by bad food mechanics (which aren’t really helped by shoes). I found the link via this article about barefoot running on Neatorama.

I personally love the Vibram FiveFingers shoes.  I’ve been wearing them for 3 years or since they first came out.  And I have gone running with them.  It is tricky to walk in a city environment with them though.  They don’t provide any padding, so walking on concrete can cause sore feet more quickly than when wearing shoes, even for people who have mobile, well-adapted feet.  But it does really allow you feel how you use your feel.

A good, mobile walk does involve a 3-D movement of the hips as well as twisting of the spine at several different depth levels (think of 3 varying length springs within one another).

If you have any shoe questions, send me an email or leave a comment.
