Besides walking around in your house.  Unless you’ve been to the beach lately, I bet you don’t remember.

Do yourself a favor—no—do your feet a favor, and kick off your shoes.  Make your feet do the job they are so marvelously designed for:   supporting your body weight.

That’s why one quarter–that’s 1/4–of all the bones in your body are in your feet.

Have issues with plantar fasciitis or your achilles tendons?  Walk barefoot more often.  Let those bones and their accompanying ligaments and tendons and tissues work together, balancing their efforts with each step.   They need to move freely in order to move  you–efficiently and safely.

Check out the history and science of feet wrapped–and unwrapped–in one great adventure story.  Read the book, Born to Run.   Barefoot, of course.
