Now, I’m not suggesting that if you put on a pair of traditional running shoes, your IQ will go down, you won’t get into the college of your choice, or you won’t be able to fill out a tax form or a crossword puzzle. But, I’m going to talk about two other kinds of stupidity. And when I talk about traditional running shoes, traditional is sort of a funny word to use because what most people think of as a running shoe, thick, padded, motion control, arch support, elevated heel, things like that. Frankly, that’s actually not traditional.
I have received emails saying, this whole idea of using footwear like ours, that doesn’t have a bunch of cushioning and padding and motion control in our support. Or, even walking and running barefoot. That it’s not good. It’s not what you’re supposed to do. Only amazingly, wonderfully talented gifted genetic freak people can actually do it, because we didn’t evolve to stand on hard surfaces or run on pavement. So let me give you the shortest version of today’s podcast…that’s complete nonsense.

I’m going to give you some negative advice, how to not pick a good running shoe on today’s episode of The MOVEMENT Movement podcast. I think it’s important to know how not to do things in order to inform how to do things. Even when I’m teaching people how to run naturally or run barefoot, I’ll often have them exaggerate bad patterns because that way it really highlights what that pattern is and makes it easier to start doing something different.
