When first trying out a minimalist shoe, keep the following tips in mind.
The theory behind the minimalist shoe is the muscles of the hips, legs and feet become stronger as they adjust to a less structured shoe, but it’s important to let your body get used to the new form gradually. Follow these tips from Life Fitness and considering giving barefoot running a try.
