biomechanically sound, and statistically plausible way of improving running and reducing injury. Condensed Science

Barefoot: starting, Professor (video), Ted, buy replica oakley Jason

slowly, your body needs buy fake oakleys time to adapt to a radically different way of movement. Too much too soon will result in injury, possibly stress fractures or worse. Pretend you are learning how to run for the first time. Listen to your body, if you have pain while running, stop immediately. Going barefoot may change your shoe size (usually smaller wider), so some recommend unshod before buying minimalist shoes. Run less than half a mile for your first time, and build up gradually, with rest days. You will be sore in new areas due to barefoot/minimalist running, but if you feel pain or soreness that does not go away after a few days, do not run.

Glass is an overblown concern. The soles of your feet will gradually toughen as you slowly increase your amount of barefooting. Be alert and constantly scan the ground for anything reflective, but especially watch out for cars pulling out/into driveways. Run against traffic.

We get a lot of similar questions come winter time, so /u/sambowilkins wrote this to answer them proactively. I was going to put it on the sidebar but we are too close to the character limit there. I also fake oakleys added this to the FAQ.

How Cold is Too Cold? There is no way replica oakleys to say exactly, but. If its cold enough that you lose significant feeling its too cold to be running unshod. Losing feeling is a quick way to get hurt.

Dry or Wet? This is the biggest factor. Dry pavement can be fine even at fairly low temperatures. You find the sun keeps it warm and it has poor thermal conduction. However dry pavement is a rarity in most places during the winter. More likely you will encounter water, snow, or slush. Wet feet lose heat very quickly and if the temperatures are nearing freezing frostbite can become a concern. Its also important to note that while water freezes at 32F, roadside slush can be well below below that because of its salt content. I cannot advise running completely unshod with any sort of precipitation on the ground.

Snow is of less concern than water. Some people are able to run through snow completely barefoot because of its insulative properties, though I can't condone that. Almost any minimalist shoe is enough to make snow passable. I run miles of trail in vibrams without issue. My feet hurt from the cold, but never went numb.

Put on some damn shoes. In any case you will need to get some covering for your feet. The type of shoe is of very little importance. I haven found any minimalist shoes I could really call water proof, and I not sure I like it if I did. Getting your feet wet is just a fact of running, what is important is making sure they are well insulated. My current preference is for slightly large minimalist shoe with a single toe box (not vibrams) that can accommodate thick wool socks. Wool is a great material for the winter because it retains much of its insulation properties even when soaking wet.

Dress warmly. Good blood flow is necessary to keep your feet warm. If the rest of your body is cold and has gone into heat retention mode, your extremities are the first things to get their blood supply reduced. Making your torso slightly too warm will cause your body to vent heat through through your fingers and toes.

Pack for a long walk home. Injury or the unexpected could force you to stop running at the worst possible time. In the summer it an inconvenience, in the winter its a hazard. If you can, carry extra socks and even pocket warmers for emergency situations.
