Are we hardwired to run efficiently, and NOT in the way the shoe companies think we should? I think these two videos prove we may well be.
First off, the kids. They haven't had a chance to be manipulated by fancy running shoes and as we can see from this video, POSE/Chi/Evolution running are all really stating what we already know before we even know we know it...
Now for something mentioned in Christopher McDougall's book "Born to Run" (my review) ... the ability of humans to literally run their prey to death in the "persistence hunt".
Whilst these aren't barefoot specific, the mechanics enforced by barefoot/minimalist running are re-enforced in these videos.
