Is barefoot training ever a good idea?
Lately, it seems like shoes have become optional for getting in a good workout. While we all remember the barefoot running craze from a few years back, a more recent spike in barefoot lifting has forced more and more gyms and weight rooms to develop “you at least have to wear socks” policies. On the flip side, most yoga, Pilates, and barre studios won’t even let you step foot into their classrooms unless you take off your shoes first. So what’s barefoot training all about? And when is it a good idea to ditch your sneakers — and when is it just asking for an injury?
