PODIATRIST DR. BETH JARRETT STATES, "PROBABLY THE BIGGER ISSUE IN TERMS OF INJURIES AND BAREFOOT RUNNING IS THE FACT THAT YOUR BAREFOOT, AND MORE LIKELY TO STEP ON STONES OR GLASS.  I GENERALLY DO NOT RECOMMEND BAREFOOT RUNNING, UNLESS SOMEONE HAD ACCESS TO A SAFE RUNNING ENVIROMENT TO MINIMIZE THE RISKS OF INJURIES FROM UNKNOWN SURFACES.  BAREFOOT RUNNING IS A GOOD TRAINING TOOL TO IMPROVE THE MECHANICS OF RUNNING, BUT SHE DOESN'T RECOMMEND IT FOR LONG DISTANCES.  YOU CAN WORK ON CADENCE, HOW FAST YOUR LEGS ARE TURNING OVER PER MINUTE.  BAREFOOT RUNNERS USE SHORT, CHOPPIER STEPS VERSUS LONGER STRIDES FOR THOSE RUNNING WITH SHOES. I WOULD RECOMMEND BAREFOOT RUNNING FOR TRAINING, BUT NOT FOR DISTANCES BECAUSE WE'VE SEEN JUST AS MANY INJURIES WITH BAREFOOT RUNNING AS WE DO WITH REGULAR SHOES."
