You Walk Wrong by Adam Sternbergh

Fun article, a little long:

Adam Sternbergh of the New York Magazine tells it like it is: You Walk Wrong. Except for the people making shoes who can't afford shoes, you walk correctly. And Ethiopia’s Abebe Bikila who ran the Olympic marathon in Rome in 1960 in bare feet—and won. Neat story, neat pictures.

(From Boing Boing, and everyone and their mom a really long time ago.)

interesting article but i cant see how it could be any healthier to walk on bare feet.. with glass, sharp concrete, feces and other disease-ridden things on the street, i think i'll go with shoes and minor foot/ankle problems

Give and take I guess. :)
