Won’t you cut yourself on glass?…etc.

There are all kinds of misconceptions out there about barefoot running. As one who’s “come out of the closest” with some fanfare (and in the winter) I’ve heard a lot of them.  The big misconception is the fundamental one: Shoes protect feet; with out them feet get hurt. The rest are kind of variations on that theme. Rob Raux, a barefoot runner in Michigan, wrote a nice little piece in which he outlines all the common misconceptions and provides the barefoot responses to them. Great to study before you’re next interrogated on the subject.
