Barefoot Brownlees

I'm often asked if any well known athletes run with the barefoot technique and my reply is always the same - the fastest and best elites in the world all run with a natural and barefoot technique - it's just that they wear shoes and don't call it 'barefoot'.

Here's a perfect example - the Brownlee brothers, currently the World's most talented Olympic distance triathletes...awesome technique allowing them to run at insane speeds having already done an intense swim and bike ride.

Check out the following video and spot the upright posture, forefoot contact and barefoot drills.
