After reading Born to Run, my husband joined the barefoot movement.  Sans Nikes or New Balance, our natural “strike” is on the balls of our feet rather than the heel.  You can imagine the different muscles that are taxed as a result.   The 4-month transition was not pleasant, but now he swears his posture has improved and he is preventing a myriad of injuries.  I’m doing the same by avoiding running all together.  Great, we are both so health conscious.

Shoe artist Kobi Levi does not have in mind a marathon with these wonderful creations.  They do make me want to race to his website to order a pair.
