Paleo seems to be the hottest buzz word these days. Not only are we digging into our ancestral recipe books for new food ideas but we are also going into their shoe boxes and to our surprise they are EMPTY. New research is contradicting the theory that more shoe support is better; instead they are presenting theories that our cavemen ancestors were a healthier bunch than our modern day man due in part to their simple lifestyles, clean wholesome foods, and lack of thick comfy shoes. Sans shoes actually make your feet stronger and maintains proper walking/running form. This word is catching on and shoe makers are coming out with new styles to support this lifestyle, Bigrams being one of these. Paleo lifestyle goes beyond just what you eat, to encompass how you think, work, walk, sleep, and play as well. All of these factors add to optimal health and we are now seeing this shift take place. With the popularization of Crossfit, more people have become exposed to the alternative Paleo lifestyle and are now adopting it, even though we still remain a minority, the buzz is getting bigger. Next time you are out take a look around you and see if you can spot some caveman brothers and sisters. I have seen a lot more people wearing Vibrams lately and even a few walking around barefoot. I'm looking forward to getting my Vibrams and joining the near barefoot team!
