Feature on the ‘real’ paleo lifestyle:
http://discovermagazine.com/2013/april/17-paleomythic-how-people-really-lived-during-the-stone-age#.UWF-KDctejg


Page two of the article is missing, but I agree with everything on page one. This sentence caught my attention:

Quote
A child who goes barefoot will end up with differently shaped feet than one who wore cute tiny sneakers.


I experimented with barefoot running last year and have taken it up again this Spring. My feet have definitely changed shape, becoming wider and thicker. And running is more enjoyable now, without that bone-jarring heel impact.
