What is Natural Footwear?

Natural footwear respects the foot's natural shape and does not impede its natural function with "support" or"technologies" that make unfounded claims about injury prevention. The following e-book reviews some of the evidence as it relates to this topic from the perspective of a physical therapist and runner. But remember: however excited you may become about reclaiming strong and able feet, you must walk before you run. This book is dedicated to indigenous peoples around the globe. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to indigenous groups in the Americas and Africa, as well as groups that support the Black Lives Matter movement.
