Sockwa X8 Review for Forefoot Running

Sockwa X8 Review for Forefoot Running

In looking at the Sockwa X8’s upper, there’s virtually no supportive structures above the foot, which gives the shoes its unmatched flexibility which ensures a steady flow of muscular engagement throughout the entire foot, helping foster greater resilience in foot functional strength.

Mimicking the barefoot condition is what the Sockwa X8 was designed for! In addition to it’s sliver-thin outsole, the Sockwa X8’s upper is highly breathable, keeping your feet cool in the summer, yet thermal enough to keep your feet warm in the winter.

"I believe the forefoot strike is the engine of endurance running..."

BSc Neurobiology; MSc Biomechanics candidate, ultra minimalist runner & founder of RunForefoot. I was a heel striker, always injured. I was inspired by the great Tirunesh Dibaba to try forefoot running. Now, I'm injury free. This is why I launched Run Forefoot, to advocate the health & performance benefits of forefoot running and to raise awareness on the dangers of heel striking, because the world needs to know.
