If you’re in the Northern hemisphere, winter is coming so you can’t be barefoot anymore. You’re gonna have to put on some big thick padded shoes with a whole lot of cushioning and you know, things to keep you warm, et cetera, et cetera. Right? Okay. Maybe not.

Well, we’re going to talk about what to do when it’s cold and you want to be barefoot, here on today’s episode of The MOVEMENT Movement podcast, the podcast for people who want to know the truth about what it takes to have happy, healthy, strong bodies, starting with the feet first, because those things are your foundation.

We will also break down the lies and mythology, the propaganda that you’ve been told about what it takes to run, walk, hike, dance, lift, do yoga, do CrossFit, slackline, play, dance, dance, revolution, whatever it is, happily and enjoyably.

I’m Steven Sashen, your host for The MOVEMENT Movement and you can find us at JointheMovementMovement.com or email me at move@jointhemovementmovement.com.

  1. So, is an interview with ” the Iceman,” Wim Hof, in the offing? If not, I’m sure Scott Carney, the author of ‘What Doesn’t Kill Us,’ about Wim Hof is willing and able.

    Your technique for barefooting in freezing weather is one way. I originally used the idea of over dressing so that the over warmed inner core blood would find its way to the bare feet. My record for an hour out was +4F or -15.56C with no numbness but had to keep my feet moving rather rapidly and the weather and roads were dry. “The Iceman” does it on ice and snow wearing only shorts! I believe Wim Hof’s technique of increasing the size and effectiveness of “brown fat” thereby using it as a “stove” to “burn white fat” is the superior method (lipolysis and gluconeogenesis by transforming white adipose tissue into glucose). This means foregoing luxurious warm baths or showers, by only going with cold water and regular exercise with skimpy clothing in cool to cold or freezing conditions.
