Barefoot running, also called "natural running", is the act of running withoutfootwear. Throughout human history, runningbarefoot was the natural way to run, and cultures such as the Tarahumara people inMexico still practice it today. Barefoot running became popular in the latter half of the 20th century, as notable Olympic runners such asAbebe Bikila, Bruce Tulloh, and Zola Buddparticipated barefoot. Scientific research into the practice of running barefoot has not reached a clear consensus regarding its risks or its benefits. While shoes provide necessary foot protection from cuts, bruises, and the weather, proponents of barefoot running argue that it offers benefits and is healthier for the feet by reducing the risk of chronic injuries (notably repetitive stress injuries) due to the impact of heel striking in padded running shoes.
