How Your Posture Improves With Minimalist Running Shoes

You should know that like every other part of your body, your feet benefit from exercise.  Remember that many exercises rely on an elastic yet steady hold from your feet and legs. That’s the reason the sole designs of minimalist shoes can help you do different kinds of exercises and give you more comfort. Your feet can move surprisingly well and bend easily in minimalist shoes.  But did you know that if you use minimalist shoes that your posture will get better as well? We all know that any regular exercise will help you with your postures. A good posture will help you with many health problems in your life, especially with later in life diseases like osteoporosis.   When you wear supportive and comfortable shoes, it will help to reduce back and neck pain. One reason that people claim to have poor posture is that their back or neck hurt.  Also, minimalist shoes, with their low or zero drop heal, make sure that you [...]

Why Minimalist Shoes Are Not Just Another Fad

I overheard a couple days ago a shoe sales associate telling a customer that minimalist shoes, or toes shoes as he called them, were just a fashion fad. I really wanted to go over there and inform the misguided man that these shoes were not about fashion. But this is not the first time I have heard these accusations. Some people think that the shoes are just a fashion craze. While others believe, what I believe is actually more insidious, is that these shoes are a health fad. These people compare minimalist shoes to fad diets like Atkins that turn out to be bad for your health in the long run. But minimalist shoes, while some people may only be wearing them for fashion reasons, are really here to stay.  Discovering that traditional running shoes are hard on your feet is more like discovering that trans fats are bad for you. Making minimalist shoes is more kin to making antibiotics for viral infections. There was a problem [...]

Trails That Have Never Been Hiked in Minimalist Boots

So, you've really broken in your minimalist boots. Your feet are used to the new gait and you've even tried a few strenuous, multi-day trails. But now you really want to do something that has never been tried before. You want to go somewhere that no man has ever gone before. And since the moon has been taken, there are still a few places on earth where no man has ever hiked. Seriously! Mount Kailash - This is a holy mountain in Tibet. The reason that this path hasn’t been touched is not because it is impossible, but because it is considered consecrated ground and unfit for humans to travel. Probably not a great place to go if you value international relations, but the 32 mile path that goes around it may be an option for you. The Ring of Fire - If you’re a geography buff or remember your high school class, you may know about this area of the earth. The ring of fire is a [...]

Traditional Shoes From Around The World

I've been writing about minimalist shoes for a while now and telling you why they are better than the athletic shoes that have been on the market since the '60's. I keep calling them traditional shoes, but I think that is a misnomer. I asked my VA, who's from the Philippines, about traditional shoes in her country. Perhaps it was just a regular language issue, but her response got me to thinking about what shoes used to be like before the '60's and are still like is some countries around the world.  So I went looking for 'traditional' shoes from around the world. And what I found was that many of them have many things in common with minimalist shoes. The traditional footwear of Pakistan is khussa. People have been wearing them for centuries.  The fashion of wearing khussas remains stable all the year round. People mostly like to wear them with traditional dressings for example Kurta Shalwar and Dhoti. In Japan, geta, zori and [...]

Minimalist Running Shoes Don’t Have To Separate Your Toes!

For a long time I have been avoiding the gym and hitting the roads instead. I found that gyms were to stifling for me, so I have just made an effort to keep active in my everyday life and get out into nature. However, now that weather has started affecting my workout routine, I've returned to the gym. Before I left the gym, I rarely saw anyone wearing minimalist shoes. I guess that may have been part of the reason that I left in the first place. I got tired of people asking me about my “toe shoes.” Yesterday when I returned to the gym, I found that there were many people in the gym that were also wearing minimalist shoes. Even one of the trainers was wearing them. I got on the bike and started peddling. My neighbor, who was wearing a beautiful pair of minimalist mesh running shoes, strikes up a conversation. “You know,” she pointed to my shoes, “Those [...]

Minimalist Shoes Popping Up Everywhere

It seems that everywhere I have been going lately, I have been seeing minimalist shoes. Some places seemed to catch on a little late, but seemed perfectly normal place for them to appear, like the gym. One would expect a place that caters to fitness to eventually realize that minimalist shoes are better for your health all the way around. And then occasionally you will see them on someone that you wouldn't expect, like the old lady in the grocery store wearing a pair of VFFs. And you are starting to see them on all of the nation’s sidewalks. But today, I saw them a whole section of them in a local discount clothing store. I guess with the shoe style becoming so popular, everyone wants to get in on the action. Most shoe companies nowadays have some sort of minimalist shoe. But you really need to be careful about the minimalist shoes that you buy from mainstream traditional shoe companies. While many of these shoes [...]

Minimalist Shoes In Developing Countries

After my foray into 'traditional' shoes around the world, I wondered how well minimalist shoes were doing in countries where true barefoot or minimalist-like traditional shoe lifestyles were being used. I looked around, but was not very surprised at my findings for the most part. But I was surprised to learn that developing countries who have a higher percentage of barefoot runners, have a lower rate of injuries. In countries were many people already go barefoot, the adoption rate of minimalist shoes is a little lower. There may be several reasons behind this trend. 1. People already run barefoot. While they know the benefit of running barefoot or minimalist, their feet are tougher from consistent barefoot use. 2. Minimalist shoes are often more expensive than running shoes and are much more expensive than going barefoot. 3. There is not as much marketing going towards these markets, so there is less awareness. But one thing seems for certain, developing countries seem [...]

How To Spot The Imposter Minimalist Shoe

With all the minimalist shoes flooding the market, how do you know what is the right one for you? Also, how can you even be sure if that shoe on the shelves is actually a true minimalist shoe? It’s easy to tell a real one from a fake when you’ve done your homework. Just because a shoe has one or two of these elements doesn’t make them minimalist either. I recently saw shoes that advertised itself as minimalist. It said that it could help improve your gait by placing the emphasis on the front and middle of your foot, which is what minimalist shoes do. However this shoe claimed to do it by placing a lot of padding underneath the arch. Minimalist shoes place the emphasis on your foot in the middle and front instead of heel by nixing the padding altogether. Your foot does this naturally. A minimalist shoe should just protect your feet from the elements, not [...]

4 Ways Minimalist Boots Are More Comfortable

Minimalist boots were introduced to provide the hikers with the ‘barefoot’ feelings. There were many hikers that still prefer to go barefoot, but many want the experience, but want to protect their feet as well. So why are Minimalist Hiking Boots more comfortable than traditional hiking boots? Thinner sole: One very unique feature that distinguishes minimalist boots from other typical boots is the thinner sole of the boots. The lower part of the shoe is made up in a way that the hikers can feel every substance under their feet. The soft lining: Many would say that it's because of its soft lining and the right placement of its pad.  Usually the inner side of these boots is spacious enough to fit the toes of the hikers. In regular hiking boots sometimes your toes can feet can become claustrophobic in their tight quarters. Light weight design: The lighter the boots are the better they are for the hikers. Less weight means that there is less [...]

The Difference Between A Home Inspection & Home Appraisal

Sometimes when someone is getting ready to buy or sell a home, they enter into the market with a few common misunderstanding about the process. One of these misunderstandings centers around the difference between a home inspection and an appraisal. It's a misunderstanding that can be very costly for both a buyer and a seller of real estate, and it's a mistake that no one wants to venture into. First let me lay out the difference between an appraisal and a home inspection. An appraisal is something that a mortgage company or a bank would require in order to verify the value of any given piece of real estate. An inspection on the other hand is something that can be optional prior to a real estate transaction. The home inspection process is designed to identify evidence of potential problems with a given piece of property. For a seller, a home inspection would be valuable in helping to determine the [...]

Top Four Trails to Hike in Minimalist Shoes

Ours shoes, whether minimalist or traditional, are there to protect our feet from sticks, rocks hidden under a slime of leaves, and the occasional bug.

Petra, Jordan: Do you remember Indiana Jones and that beautiful city in the desert carved out of a rock face, hidden from the world? Well, it’s not so hidden anymore.

Instead opt for the 50 mile, seven day hike through the rocks to a private viewing of the monastery carved out of the rock or many of the other grand features in the area. Bay of [...]

Kuuva: Minimalist Hiking Boots With Style

2 Reasons Your Feet Will Thank You If You Switch To Minimalist Running Shoes

When our ancestors started walking and running around to hunt and gather, they did it barefoot. As technology progressed, we learned to make footwear to protect our feet from the ground and all sorts of objects that we come across. However, it wasn’t until the mid-1960s that running specific shoes were created by a company then known as Blue Ribbon Sports (which in 1978 became Nike). Nike created a new trend for the running shoe: increase in cushioning, adding pronation control and giving it more stability and weight. The advancement in the running shoe technology led to increasingly high-tech shoes with more and more cushioning and support that may have done more harm than good. Running with full-sized shoes does increase the support and cushion to the foot, but the pain and stress is transferred elsewhere. The elevated heels and extra weight of these shoes cause most runners to heel strike (heel hitting the ground first), which causes additional [...]

Lamar Odom Needs A Dentist (Video)

Getting someone to go to the dentist is not easy task when that person is afraid of what might happen. However, there's nothing like a solid tooth ache to sway the odds in your favor of getting your loved one into the dentist chair.   The good thing is, with pain medication and anesthesia, visiting the dentist to get your tooth ache resolved, or any other dental treatment you are needing, can make the visit a whole lot more appealing. Check out this clip from "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" where Khloe is trying to convince Lamar to go to the dentist to get his tooth ache taken care of.   Who knew Lamar was such a baby when it comes to the dentist?   Finally, I think it's the appeal of conscious sedation dentistry that finally convinces Lamar to agree to go to the dentist.

4 Ways To Deal With The Pain Of A Broken or Chipped Tooth

If you've never experienced this before, then I'm very happy and thankful for you. But sometimes, while eating food or playing around, something can happen where you accidentally chip or break a tooth. Sometimes, when you chip or break a tooth, you may not feel any pain at all since the break did not expose the nerve. However, there are other times where you can break or chip a tooth and it does expose a nerve, and when this happens let me tell you... the pain can be excruciating. So what do you do when you break or chip your tooth and the pain is unbearable? The obvious answer is to get to your dentist as quickly as possible. But what about if it's the weekend, or after hours, and your dentist isn't readily accessible? This can create quite a dilemma, especially if you are experiencing intense pain. If you can't immediately get to dentist, then there are some [...]

3 Easy Tips To Preventing Tooth Decay

When it comes to a healthy smile, and bright white teeth, there are a lot of procedures that your dentist can initiate. These teeth whitening procedures are great for those who want to have white teeth that leaves a favorable first impression. But in order to take the steps to making your teeth whiter and improving your overall smile, the implication is that you have all of your teeth to work with in the first place. Tips To Preventing Tooth Decay Tooth decay is the most common childhood disease and is most prevalent in low income children. The surgeon general estimates that 51 million hours of school is missed by children due to tooth decay and oral health issues and over 164 million work hours are missed by adults due to tooth decay. Tooth decay will actually erode the natural structure of your teeth, causing the form and shape of your teeth to be altered. But there are some [...]

3 Basic Keys To Healthy Teeth & Gums

Let's take a moment and get back to the basics of dental health. In today's day and age of complicated procedures, teeth whitening technology, and cosmetics, we can tend to forget about the core fundamentals of healthy teeth and gums. But at the end of the day, all the technology in the world doesn't replace the healthy habits of taking care of your teeth. The same habits you have learned since you were a kid that your parents and teacher instilled in you. So today we are going to cover 3 basic steps you can take to ensure you have healthy teeth and gums. These steps are fundamental, and should be practiced by kids and adults to ensure overall healthy teeth and gums. 1) Brush Regularly This is a function of consistency, not "let me brush right now for 3 hours straight to make up for years of neglect"! The key to getting the most out of regularly brushing [...]

Minimalist Hiking Boots, Getting Back To Nature

What is it about hiking that exhilarates you and makes you want to get back out onto the hiking trail?  Is it the fresh air that you find only in the mountains or deep in the woods? Is it the refreshing brisk walk that you get from being on the trail?  Or perhaps it's the quiet peace that you find when you are isolated from all the noise in the world. Whatever it is, for the avid hiker, the trail is always beckoning you back. That is becoming a picture that is commonly found among minimalist hikers as well - that beckoning back to a deeper level of experience while hiking, and becoming closer to nature while hiking. It's something that is difficult to attain while wearing the traditional hiking boot, mostly due to their  thick soles and heavy weight. Minimalist hiking boots are a trend that's growing among both hikers and inclement weather runners, i.e. those who run in [...]

A Natural Case For Minimalist Running

Kristen Coppens, columnist for A Healthier Michigan, has published an article that highlights some of the benefits to minimalist running. We talk about this topic quite a bit here, and have covered the pros and cons of minimalist running, but I like how Kristen talks about the natural benefits that unfold as a result of minimalist running. Now, a lot of people refer something called barefoot running. Which is, obviously, running with out any shoes on whatsoever.  But the reality is that the majority of people who are active in what's called barefoot running are actually running with minimalist running shoes. These are the shoes that are ultra light, ultra thin, and give you the sensation of actually running barefoot - without actually being barefoot. Some of the benefits that occur naturally for minimalist runners, as Kristen so eloquently points out, are that nerve endings are at a heightened level which causes you to run with much better posture and sloppily (love that [...]

More Is Less With Minimalist Hiking Boots

You've heard the saying before right... that less is more?  It's a saying that finds it's way into many facets of our lives and tells a tale of how doing less, having less, or producing less ends up netting us more. This same cute little saying can be applied to the new trend of minimalist hiking.  And more specifically, to the experience of hiking in minimalist hiking boots. So to bring it all together in one phrase, less is proving to be more when it comes to minimalist hiking boots! What does mean exactly, and how is "less actually more" when it comes to minimalist hiking boots? Great question. With a great pair of minimalist hiking boots, like the Kuuva from Feelmax, you actually will get a lot more out of your hike than you would with a pair of traditional hiking boots. First, minimalist hiking boots will allow you to experience more of mother-nature while hiking.  Because the [...]

Consistency Is Key To Minimalist Running Success

As it is with many activities, sports, and other disciplines in life, if you want to get good at it you simply have to invest the time and commitment to achieve your goals. And as anyone who knows what I'm talking about would agree, this commitment is not something that's done in the short term - it's a long term commitment to achieving success. It's no different when it comes to minimalist running, and adapting your running style to your new pair of minimalist running shoes.
