Welcome to Barefoot Julian – Ramblings about the joys of running barefoot, improving foot health and connecting with the Natural World!
Shoes are a bit like the ring in The Lord of The Rings. Shoe designers are brilliant at making footwear that we fall in love with at first sight. But in the end, they turn our feet bad. Just like the ring, shoes cripple our feet, but oh so slowly. So gradually that we barely notice our feet have changed. But have you ever looked at the perfect feet of a baby and compared them to the mangled feet of an adult? That is all caused by the shoes we put our feet in – and it’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The human foot is perhaps the defining factor that has made us into the species we are today and is the least understood of all the marvels of nature. In these modern days, most people don’t understand what they have and choose to hide their feet away in nice-looking straight jackets.
If you’re interested in discovering this treasure for yourself, you’ve come to the right place.
