When you last went running, did you wear shoes? Sounds like a silly question.

There was a time when barefoot walking was considered to be immodest and was frowned upon by people. In fact, watching someone walking without his/her shoes, or at least slippers, on was bound to create a negative impression about him/her in other people’s mind.

Running/Walking barefoot can be a comfortable and refreshing experience that most people enjoy.

By running bare foot you will naturally learn to expand your foot and spread your toes which will make the foot become a strong base that sustains all of your movements.

You have small muscles in your hips, legs, feet and ankles that are not activated with thick running shoes on. When you are bare foot, these muscles are engaged and you will find you have better coordination and improved balance.

Barefoot walking helps to develop better perception of the contact with the ground, which allows us to interact with support more efficiently, place the body weight on the foot more precisely; have better timing of the contact with the ground.

It develops muscle strength, particularly in those groups of muscles of the feet, and related muscles of the legs and hips, which are out of use when we are in shoes.

It also helps to release psychological stress through the reduction of electricity charges in the body, which can now serve as a kind of lightning rod.  Improve the body temperature regulation due to the adaptation to the lower outside temperature.

Walking barefoot helps straighten out the toes and prevents its deformity. It also improves flexor strength.  Walking barefoot provide relaxation to the tired feet. It has also proven to be an effective remedy to get rid of the problem of flat feet.
