Born To Run

Born To Run

Seriously, I’m not sure why this isn’t issued to anyone who buys a pair of Vibram FiveFingers. Even if you couldn’t care less about ultra-running. It’s a great story.

Body Glide

Body Glide

Run any kind of distance? Like your nipples? ‘Nuff said. Oh yeah, it’ll work for blisters and hotspotting on your feet, too.

The Barefoot Running Book Second Edition: A Practical Guide to the Art and Science of Barefoot and Minimalist Shoe Running

The Barefoot Running Book

If you’re just getting started with barefoot/minimalist running, this is a must read. Jason Robillard (Barefoot Jason) lays it all out in a nice, neat package. An easy, but definitely informative read with lots of knowledge and practical exercises.

2Toms Stinkfree

2Toms Stink Free Spray

Keep your Vibram FiveFingers and other minimalist shoes, well, stink free. (Note: I haven’t personally tried this, but it comes highly recommended.)

A T-Shirt

Men's and Women's "Yes, They are Comfortable" T-Shirt

Spread the word and look awesome all at the same time. Makes a great stocking stuffer! Get one here.


Left Hand Brewing Milk Stout

You can’t be a bad ass barefoot runner without beer. Great for celebrating PR’s and 5K or half/full marathons. Or just because. Otherwise, why would they hand them out at the End of the Warrior Dash? (Just make sure it’s something good. You know what I’m talking about.)

Reflective Gear

Safety first, guys and gals. This really is something every runner should have, especially if you run early in the morning or later in the evening. I’ve had to jump in the ditch to dodge traffic before. Not cool.

Reflective Belt

What else is on your list?

    I am getting back into rnuinng, but I’m just poking along in the couch to five k at the moment! I love those hot pink nikes, but I have always found the toe sneakers a little creepy for my taste, in spite of how awesome all my friends who have them say they are.

    Not look weird. Okay, they look a little weird. But only, as you say, besauce they’re not common. But they FEEL weird. Because I don’t have stuff between my toes. Not when I’m barefoot, not in shoes. It feels weird to have my toes pushed apart.
