I was invited to drop into a Vibram Five Fingers "Minimalist Clinic" the other day and found it most informative.  The Guys running it were very enthusiastic and helpful and Ive put together a short video whch explains a little of the background to the products and the company if youre looking at changing to "barefoot" running. It's not a hard sell; hope you find it interesting. (NB Muttley and others: BLOG LINK ALERT!!!)

I've also been to barefoot running clinics, the one I went to was in the Run and Become store in London, the guy running the class had his own company and website and I think it was called Primal living or something like that. He took us to the park and we ran without shoes or socks on the concrete- it was such a big difference to running even with the most minimal trainers and helped you see just how different it is to running with shoes.

 

 Barefoot running when done differently is almost a totally different sport! I'd strongly advise anyone thinking about barefoot running to go to one of these classes so you can really understand. For so long I'd though my body would some how just sort itself out and take up the technique but the reality is, it doesn't work like that and to master the technique you really have to understand it as much as you can.

The Guy you refer to is I think Matt Wallden from Primal Lifestyle - one of the few places you can get VFFs in the UK http://www.primallifestyle.com/ Matt's very knowledgable and a good egg
