Why Run In Minimalist Shoes?

Runners the world over are all asking this same question. Why switch from my regular shoes to minimalist running shoes? Will they help? The answer is a resounding yes. Minimalist shoes will help correct your form so that your foot strikes the way it is supposed to. Regular running shoes hinder your ability to run properly. Minimalist shoes are more open at the toes, thus allowing your foot to react how it was designed to during a run. Regular running shoes are narrow in the toe and prevent this.

Overall, you want to run in minimalist shoes because they help you run the way your body was designed to run.
