[ Edit- Thanks to all those that replied! I received enough responses, so I’m taking down the link.]
The entire running industry is in a state of flux between the old paradigm of motion-control, raised heel shoes that promote bad form and minimalist “barefoot” shoes that promote better form. Every element of the industry, from manufacturers to retail stores, are beginning to feel this change. I think we’re in an excellent position to influence this change by promoting barefoot running as a means of learning better form.
One of my goals is to understand how we (the barefoot and minimalist shoe community) are making choices about where we buy our shoes. I plan to use this information to promote the spreading of barefoot and minimalist shoe education, especially at the local retail level. For those that would like to participate, I created a short survey to measure our habits. The survey is intended for runners that purchase minimalist shoes. I’d appreciate anyone that would like to complete the survey. I won’t ask for your personal information, it’s anonymous.
I’ll need about 100 responses. If you’d like to take the survey, click the link below. If the link does not work, I’ve reached the maximum number of responses.
Thanks a ton!
