I just started training barefoot during the past few weeks - running, weightlifting, and bag work. Wondering how many of you guys do barefoot training and if you think there are benefits to running barefoot, in particular?

I run with the FiveFinger shoes and also lift weights with them. I dont know if you guys have seen these, they are kinda crazy but wearing them are the only way I can run barefoot without looking down watching for glass or whatever. check these things out if you havent seen them - http://www.fivefingerfootwear.com/

I don't know if you have tried those VFF's, but they are pretty much the same as barefoot.

Anyways, running barefoot is actually better for your knees and ankles. You will run with less impact while also strengthening muscles that you don't use as much with regular shoes on. There is alot of research about barefoot running and how it makes your body stronger. Just a thought, still interested to hear if anyone else is training, and running barefoot?
