The Lucas Rockwood Show

Christopher McDougal’s 2009 book, Born to Run, brought minimal footwear and the importance of healthy feet to the forefront of fitness conversations internationally. At the time, there were just a couple minimal-style shoe companies in existence, today there are dozens. If you’re like most people, you’ve likely been squishing your feet into narrow toe box shoes with arch support and an elevated heel for most of your life. The result? Plantar fasciitis, bunions, hammertoe, and overlapping toes are just a handful of the many problems that can arise from this modern foot binding practice. The good news is that there are solutions and this week’s guest is here to talk you through them.

Listen and learn

  • Why your toes should be the widest part of your foot
  • What “zero drop” means and why it’s important
  • How to decide between surgical or natural interventions for foot problems
  • The importance of strong, limber feet
