    Barefoot Shoes

A year ago I had to stop all sports and running due to shin splints. I couldn�t walk without pain especially in cold weather. A podiatrist told me I had fallen arches and i needed insoles else I would have shin splints for the rest of my life. I did nothing for a full month. Then started barefoot running. 100 meters a day at first, increasing each week by a little. I started landing on my mid foot and my cadence increased. Then I bought some vibram�s and can now run 10 miles in a city on concrete. Shin splints have never returned.
