You walk (or run) wrong

Just read an interesting article in New York Magazine about feet. According to the article, shoes--even running shoes--are detrimental to our foot's structure and generally the whole concept of shoes (padding, cushioning, comfort) is only needed because we wear shoes. Not exactly an article you would see in Runner's World.

Also, the photographs they used are really cool and make you do a double take.

cool image. I have heard that before...but I have to be honest I love the cushy feeling of my running shoe and I don't like when I land on rocks...too bad feet.

You should hop on over to Keith's blog. He has had two recent entries on this topic. I don't know how to create hyperlinks in a comment, but on my blog, he's the second person on my sidebar.

Yup, I've read articles about it too, they say that the running shoe will be going by the wayside,

however, whoever painted that foot has wwwwwwwaaaaaayyyyy too much time on their hands (or feet)
