Do I have to go barefoot?

The barefoot/minimal running movement has been going strong for the last couple of years. But do you have to go barefoot to have good form, and does going barefoot guarantee good form?

The answer to both questions is a definitive “No”.

You can learn good running form in whatever shoes you wear, and many people continue to run with poor form when barefoot.The key is not the footwear, but learning how to rebuild your running form, plus learning the non-running mechanics that reinforce good form.
Then, pick whatever footwear you like.
