Could Your Running Shoes Be Hurting More Than Your Wallet?

I’ll admit it; I love running shoes… it’s probably one of the reasons I took up running a couple of years ago- an excuse to buy new shoes every couple of months (like I needed one!). Because I’m a wimp and really only run in perfect weather – meaning I take the entire Winter off and even parts of the Summer – my shoes don’t even really get all that worn out. I don’t need to buy new running shoes every couple of months like many runners; I just want to :) I must have about a dozen half worn pair in my closet right now!

This article from Popular Mechanics explains how all these over engineered running shoes may actually be hurting us more than helping us and discusses the trend of barefoot running.
