Apparently running barefoot is the new big thing. I’m not really a big fan of running so I can’t say that I’ve researched it enough to know exactly why it’s AWESOME.

All I know is that this new exercise trend has people walking around in the mall in the “shoes” featured to the right…. and they freak me out.

I think it mostly has to do with the toes, but if you’re interested or these look like a type of footwear that you’d be willing to give a shot, you can check them out at REI.

Whatever your running preferences, I believe that this choice of shoe falls strictly under the category of wearing workout gear in public and should not be done.

The end.
