MOJI OVERVIEW:

Gretchen Reynolds writes for Tara Parker-Pope’s Well section of The New York Times about the growing trend of barefoot running.  In the article, she analyzes the purported benefits of barefoot running using what little research has been done on the subject.  Since science has not kept pace with the trend, it is difficult to determine whether or not runners are better off without shoes.  Reynolds states that one fact is clear – barefoot running requires different biomechanics than running in shoes, what that means, however, is still up for debate.
