As someone who specializes in health, my interest was peaked even even more now. I asked more questions. Her name was Vena Cook-Clark, age 27, and she'd been operating like a hobby for 6 years.Originally, the unusual look and lightness with the shoes grabbed her attention. She read that barefoot running was better for her alignment, and it was enough to make her plunk down the asking price of $100.00 to give them a try.When she brought them home, her husband joked they looked like she had "alien toes," but now, she exclaims he wants a pair too.

She added, "It was awkward running with them initially, but after about 2 weeks I got used to them and now want an additional pair for hiking."She boasted about how easy it truly is to toss them within the wash with all the rest of her running or working out clothing.
She told me they were produced by a company named Vibram and told me I could get them on the internet by Googling "Vibram Five Fingers."When I got home that evening, I did just that. I instantly found what was called a "Barefoot Motion." Purists preferred the term, "Minimalist Movement," considering that you're not seriously barefoot while wearing them. First, I wanted to discover out if there truly were health benefits to wearing them.Turns out, a 2010 study from India says children who wore footwear before the age of 6 were far more probably to create flat ft than kids who ran all over barefoot. They also had far better formulated longitudinal arches. Statistically, 8.2% of kids who wore footwear regularly suffered from flat toes compared to 2.8% of barefoot kids. The study was published in the Times of India.I also learned I'm not the first person to learn this study. In 2009, Christopher McDougall wrote a brand new York Time's bestseller called, "
