The Evolution of Running with Professor Daniel Lieberman

The BareFoot Professor Daniel Lieberman

"The BareFoot Professor" Dr. Daniel Lieberman

Over the last week several people have asked why I wear Vibram’s Five Finger shoes. Although, no matter what I say they either think I’m making it up or I simply have bad taste in footwear.

So, instead of taking my word for it, I thought who better to hear from than a Harvard University Professor. Not only does Daniel Lieberman give a clear and succinct reason why barefoot running should be the norm he provides a very interesting hypothesis on why humans even began to run.

The video has been around for some time and is definitely worth watching if you haven’t seen it. Check it out below:
