Earth Runners Minimal Earthing Sandals

Earth Runners Minimal Earthing Sandals Thumbnail

Flip flop sandals have always filled me with fear, particularly the thong style with inter-toe strap, which seems like an horrific big toe accident waiting to happen. Obviously I've been intrigued by the huarache sandals made famous by the Tarahumara and the book, Born to run. Intrigued, but not even slightly interested in wearing them [...]

New Balance Minimus Zero

New Balance Minimus Zero Thumbnail

The New Balance Minimus Zero is a surprisingly light shoe, the shoe box was so light that I half expected it to be empty. I know it's billed as a minimalist shoe so was hardly likely to be bulky but it has such an imposing sole that I was expecting it to feel slightly more [...]

Soft Star Shoes – Moc3 Barefoot Running Shoe

Soft Star Shoes – Moc3 Barefoot Running Shoe Thumbnail

Soft Star shoes are my guilty pleasure, the fashion habit that I feel somewhat obliged to hide from the family. I'm threatening to turn into one of those old biddies who wander round the streets in their slippers, but when shoes are this comfortable who really cares? Soft Star shoes are as cutting edge and [...]

Sportpursuit – Sports Gear and Gadget Deals Site

Sportpursuit – Sports Gear and Gadget Deals Site Thumbnail

I was recently asked to blog about a new flash sale website that focuses on sports gear and gadgets. I normally avoid this stuff like the plague as I'm not interested in seeing my inbox fill with fabulous offers that I wouldn't touch with a barge pole. This one seemed a little different and as [...]

Barefoot Rowing

Barefoot Rowing Thumbnail

I was scheduled for another run this evening but after watching Biggest Loser UK and seeing myself get thrashed by one of the contestants over the 5k distance, I didn't feel much in the mood for running. I opted to row instead and as I've been reading about the new rage for barefoot and/or strapless [...]

I Am a Barefoot Runner

My Vibram Five Fingers have started to cause consternation in the house, the stench is creating a no go zone in the hallway but at least this movie can raise a little smile. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=theHXQP9Bo0

Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the Sand Thumbnail

Finally... My enforced rest seems to have paid dividends and I have finally managed to run without pain or at least without dodgy pain - my quads are currently screaming but it's that satisfying well earned sort of discomfort. We were on a pre-Christmas trip to see my parents on the east coast. I'd planned [...]

Vibram Five Finger Speed Review and the Campsite Run

Vibram Five Finger Speed Review and the Campsite Run Thumbnail

A beautiful pair of Vibram Five Fingers arrived just before the camping expedition. Unfortunately all the photos were taken post camping trip where of course it rained relentlessly and so the Five Fingers have lost a little of their new shoe gleam. I wanted to get a slightly larger pair of VFF's as my earlier pair of [...]

A Sticky Barefoot End

A Sticky Barefoot End Thumbnail

I'm taking the direct skin on tarmac approach very slowly but after managing a 300m true barefoot dash last week I thought it was time to go out again. I don't recommend late night, barefoot runs on rainy nights. For one thing the gravel sticks more persistently but more importantly the damp attracts soft squishy critters with [...]

Barefoot Tip Toes

Barefoot Tip Toes Thumbnail

I was using Lynn as my sacrificial canary, she was running far ahead but everytime she wailed and started hopping from foot to foot I knew to make ever such a slight detour. Not that it worked very well, we hopped and squealed almost evenly. So marked the start of our true barefoot experience. I've [...]
