On Episode 6, Josh Stiles, joins the podcast and we jump in feet first into the benefits of barefoot style running, minimalist footwear and the story of Shamma Sandals

Josh is the founder and owner of Shamma Sandals. They produce Elite Minimalist Footwear, in Santa Cruz California, yes they’re made in the USA

Our feet are truly extraordinary, and when they’re allowed to be feet, great things can happen. We all remember the feeling, when we were young, running barefoot through the grass, our feet never were sore … what happened?

Almost everyone can run and walk barefoot or in minimalist footwear, and there’s no need to rush. Josh shares the keys to a smooth transition from you conventional running shoes to the freedom of running barefoot style.

Keys to success:

Commitment - like all good things in life, consistency is the secret sauce

Start barefoot - take the shoes completely off

Start slowly - walk or run a mile, that’s it

Build slowly - 1 mile a week for a few weeks, then add a mile per week

Resist the urge to run your normal distance for a very long time

Don’t fixate on your footstrike - get the hands in the right position, elbows back, run tall
