The shoes you put on everyday can play a bigger role in the function of your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine than you might realize. 

"By applying the principles in this book, you will be able to restore your foundation and prevent dysfunction." Ray McClanahan, DPM

Biomechanist and author of Simple Steps to Foot Pain Relief, Katy Bowman offers walkers, runners, and health professionals alike clear, accessible lessons on how the shape of shoes can play a role in painful feet, knees, and hips―and what to do about it.

When we have painful feet and weak ankles it seems like stiff, supportive shoes are the answer, but this solution can be temporary, especially if our issues stem from foot and leg weakness. In short, humans come with great "foot technology," we just need to learn how to use it.

Barefoot is natural, but research shows simply kicking off our shoes and releasing our feet into the wild can result in injury.

Whole Body Barefoot will help you safely and effectively transition to minimal footwear, reaping the enormous benefits of freeing your feet without injuring yourself along the way.

Whole Body Barefoot presents:

  • 25 exercises to create strong, supple, feel-better feet
  • The mechanics of bunions and pronation
  • How to strengthen weak ankles and arches
  • How to figure out your true shoe-size
  • The importance of walking on natural surfaces―"Vitamin Texture"
  • With clear, science-based explanations, Bowman lays out how conventional shoes and artificial environments leave us with sedentary feet. Take the first steps to naturally restore lost foot function, and improve health, today!
