Aside from running barefoot, one of the best ways to connect with the ground to improve form and balance is with one of my favorite forefoot running shoes, the Vibram KSO EVO! Its paper-thin sole delivers a high dose of sensory input that helps plant the mechanical seeds for you to run better, getting your mechanics to work better for you so you’re less likely to land with careless, heavy footfalls.

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.
