Meet Anna McNuff: the woman who is running her way around the world
By Eva zu Beck, Euro News

Self-professed mischief maker and adventurer Anna McNuff has inspired a generation of fitness lovers with her unique travelling style - running and cycling across countries around the world.

Last year, Anna ran the length of Britain completely barefoot. That’s 2,352 miles, equivalent to 90 marathons. In 2013, she cycled across every US state over seven months. As if that wasn’t enough, she ran the length of New Zealand two years later, and cycled the ridge of the Andes mountains in 2016.

Xero Shoes is giving away a pair of YOUR CHOICE minimalist footwear to one lucky winner this month!

Your Choice_Tree Story.png

Be sure to check out this great video of Steven explaining why the health of our feet is so important and how traditional shoes can destroy your foot health, then spread the word to all those you know:

Do your feet feel better at the end of the day than they did at the beginning?

If not, it's because your shoes aren't letting your feet do what's NATURAL.

Your feet are made to bend, flex, move and FEEL the world. One-quarter of the bones and joints in your ENTIRE body are in your feet and ankles; you have more nerve endings in your soles than anywhere but your finger tips and lips.

Comfort and performance come from using your feet naturally.

That's what Xero Shoes let you do....
