A good sign that barefoot running is becoming mainstream is the inevitable Youtube parodies. And since barefoot runners are “simple”, to quote the first video, they are happy to laugh along with ordinary runners, the ones in high heels I mean.
I am not a barefoot runner myself, but I do subscribe to the general concept. Our legs have a great suspension system so why not use it?
Here are my favorites so far.
