    Caity,

    Thanks for reading my poetry on your podcast. I am honored. Your lovely musical voice is a delight to my ears. What an exhilarating experience to hear my words spoken in your voice. You have given me a great gift.

    Your own barefoot running story was my inspiration to throw away my running shoes. All those years of chasing the newest shoe technology to support my “bad” feet only to find that the shoe technology was the issue.

    It’s been great getting my real live feet into condition with daily barefoot walking and running. My sole pads are getting tougher. My knees, hips and back all feel better as well. Like that old kid’s song goes: the foot bone’s connected to the knee bone and to the hip bone and to the back bone. I wouldn’t be surprised if monster shoes cause monster headaches, too.

    I’ve gotten the shoes off my husband and both my kids as well. I love seeing their bare animal toes spread and grasp the way they were designed to do.

    I worry when I see some of the dangerous monstrosities people strap to their feet in the name of exercise, fashion and beauty.

    I’m glad that you and others are out there saving feet, one naked set at a time.

    All the best,

    Alice

      I love that… “I wouldn’t be surprised if monster shoes cause monster headaches.” Indeed!
