For a newbie, are there certain differences of note between barefoot hiking, running, and walking? Obviously there are differences in general. For example, they make hiking shoes, trail running shoes, road running shoes and even walking shoes. Each is optimally tailored for that experience. But with barefeet, there are no differences. You got what you got. So what are the ways we should modify our barefoot activities based on whether we hike , run or walk, that are specific to those activities.oh, and what about trail running barefoot? I suppose we need to blend our approaches to barefoot hiking and running together, right? Or is that yet another animal altogether ? And yes, I'm realizing I'm overthinking this already. Sorry .
