>fixes ur posture and feet
>fucks up your knees
nobody's ever look so good heading for an early wheelchair
>he's a heel striker
holy filtered imagine not being able to walk without literal cushions on you feet
you're supposed to be using flat shoes and doing midfoot strike retards
hes kinda right if youre a heel stomper. but thats the point of flat shoes, so you make contact with the ball of your foot on the ground first, your calves are natural cushions
even with your enhanced cocksuck strike, running still destroys your knees. Get these grannies their walkers
Bike Chads keep winning
>Bike Chads keep winning
Cycling crushes your perineum and peripheral nerves around your dick causing impotence tho
huh, I don't have those issues with your mom
Cycling is like pissing. Men do it standing up.
Cycling reduces sperm count. Swimchads win again

Why are these shoes so fucking stupid expensive?
It's less material, i wanted to try them but i'm not paying 200-300 cad for this what the fuck.
Might as well just wear converse or vans.
60 yurobucks on a site i know. however idk if it exports to canada since it is a more local store.
Buy the Amazon brand for 40 euros. It's just a thin piece of rubber...it's absurd to pay 150+ for it.
The same reason organic/whole foods are expensive, where as the junk food loaded with preservatives, gmo, fats, sodium and sugar are cheaper.
>they want you weak, stupid and lazy
>they want you dead
If you're curious about the actual reason, its because the market for barefoot shoes is smaller, which makes it less competitive and have fewer economies of scale. Organic food is the same way, plus its usually slightly more expensive to produce.

economy of scale?
buy one good pair and then go barefoot whenever you don't need shoes
I'm still wearing chineese $2 sneakers after 2 years of lifting and running
where'd you find them?
My mom bought them on some flea market.
Dog skin is strong
I got these, they're good so far https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B09YCYXDJG
yes, wide fit converse with the insole removed
Supply & demand.
Is this shit actually any good for lifting?
Any flat sole shoes are 'good' for lifting. Or none at all.
I know, but those don't really look flat soled. Searched and they're apparently "swimming shoes"?!
Not the same thing. Sometimes they're sold as the same on Amazon by cheapo Chinese sellers.
Which of these models are the best for lifting?
I dunno bro, I'm DYEL. Generally with shoes you want as much horizontal toe space as possible so you can splay your toes a lot. Not for walking but for doing squats or something I would guess literally barefoot is best.
If I wanted to wear flat shoes I would wear beach sandals. Or Crocs.
If I wanted to go jogging on asphalt I would wear cushionmaxed carbonfiber plate shoes.
>walk on concrete or asphalt
wow thanks.I'm beginning to think that all this toe fixing craze is all because americlaps wear tight shoes for 99% of their day instead of using slippers at home.Try not wearing shoes to sleep like a normal person and you'll see that most people don't have fucked up toes.
I'm not American but my toes are extremely fucked up. Literally this on one
I have no problems running on asphalt with barefeet shoes.
I don't think most Americans wear shoes in their homes. Might be a lower class thing though
Isn't there something between these shoes and regular ones in term of wideness? I'd like to try a pair, I hate the feeling of having my heel elevated, walking is more uncomfortable, but all the barefoot shoes I've seen look like clown shoes.
trail runners are flat and not wide.
Flat wide sneakers with soft sole like Onitsuka tiger or somethinglike this might get most of the benefits depeinding on your foot shape
> buy my overpriced rubber sneakers/socks
> buy my overpriced spring
no bot, i'm fine, turns out u need to git calves with standing leg raises barefoot - fixes ur feet pemanently
>ok i get it, healthy muscles of bottom of feet through regular exertion, but must fucks are lazy and just want buy/pill solution
but it won't work, like benching and dipping won't produce chest, buying garbage won't fix ur body/life
I like the serrano's, they're $100 which is okay I guess but holy shit the other stuff on their site, there are these thick padded flip flops for $340, tshirts for $55, pants for $650 what justifies the prices of these products?
>what justifies the prices of these products?
idiots willing to buy such shit
Some of them do look like clown shoes.
I like altras they don’t look too bad. Some of them put a kind of design around the toe box to give them the illusion of being smaller.
I have some lems that I like too
I wonder if modern shoes are the reason i get shin pain when walking sometimes. Or maybe im just retarded.
yes they probably are and you should start doing tibialis raises
Idk what those are. I go for style on my feet when I'm not at the gym.
Superior footwear coming through.
I'd probably actually wear these if I wasn't worried about looking like a cringelord.
Thinking about getting a pair of these for the gym. Anyone know a spot in Tokyo that sells them?
Only thing, of course, is that you need to buy special socks for them too lol
I noticed heaps of tradies/construction guys wearing them when i lived here. Try workman. If you're over like 25cm foot though you're probably out of luck. I looked for boots in 30cm and the dude at workman straight up laughed at me
here you go my nigga:
there are options
>some of these are $1,000+
I thought I was retarded for spending $220 on shoes yesterday
>My hands look like this, so her hooves can look like that
>camel toe shoes
these god damn shoes never stay tied so i spend half the time looking even more autistic than usual. i suggest the trail series from vivo because they tighten at the top. be mindful that the primus lite series have 0 sole traction.
Just double knot them, dummy.
You learn to do that as a child.
>cum and dog fur encrusted leggings
You just know
>right has less material
Not falling for that scam
Looks cool but also expensive. How much do these things go for in Canada? If it's 200+ I won't even bother spitting on them
Get yourself some Lems or Altras if you want zero drop and a decent amount of padding.
Thought I was gonna run a sub-60 min 10k today but ran a 1:02. Dang. Oh well, back to work.
How are these different to chucks? Just a wider toe box?
its the shittiest barefootshoe brand there is, so yeah
or better forefoot strike
How does height affect running? Taller = faster?
Dumb shill thread. Every world class athlete is using traditional shoes. The only people using barefoot are fringe ultra runners, aka rejects of the running community.
nigga have you seen what top class athelete feet look like?
This is the foot of a subhuman who had absent/uncaring parent(s). See how mangled the toes are, it means his feet were crammed into far too small shoes for most of his developmental years, so his parent(s) can't even use the excuse of "we couldn't find shoes in his size" because they never even cared to try when they could find shoes in his size.
most modern shoes are so incredibly narrow in the toes because it's more aesthetic than clown shoes, it's important to splay your toes naturally so you don't end up like pic
to be fair most players wear shoes 2 sizes too small so they don't roll their shit up
literally ea-nasir tier
Took a proper long walk yesterday with barefoot shoes. The tendons in the lower heel felt like they were going to rip off. I think I walk differently as to when I'm actually barefoot. Like I'm forcing my feet to bend up.
I just got inserts for my shoes since I've always had really high arches. Absolute gamechanger, feel like I can be on my feet for hours with little pain
>It's not more aesthetic, it was made fashionable by nobility
Get a load of this retard
A year after I deprogrammed myself, I couldn't see "normal" shoes as anything other than twinkle toe homosexual shit for morons.
I've spent $1400 on boots once
Link, I wanna see
it's just a pair of boots hand made by Enzo Bonafe in Bologna, Italy
the reason they're more expensive than normal is because the 'leather' is shell cordovan which is a membrane horses have on their butt. Only a single tannery in Chicago can make proper leather out of it and every horse only has enough for like 2 pairs of shoes.
Enzo was a master at making shoes from this material.
He made my boots last year but sadly he passed away earlier this year.
What am I looking at?
I like the one that the line darts back and forth like lightning.
The cushioned shoe is more like walking on soft grass and dirt, natural. the other is like walking on concrete barefoot, unnatural.
