Hi all, This is Adeel from Pakistan, currently living in Oman. I am currently in transition mode form shoes to barefoot. I was going through some of the forum threads but wasnt able to find out the issue I am facing. So I have started barefoot small runs / walks for about 2 months now. I started first inside my appartment on tiles for small 2 to 3 km run. By the end of run as expected I felt skin rashes on the my feet. Later I tried 5 to 10km run on the grass outside my home, which also went fine and surprisingly, I didnt experience any rashes. After doing it for multiple times, I tried to run on road 5 kms(barefoot offcourse), and it was nightmare. Not only it was rashes but also the small pebbles on road made it very difficult for me. For next 2 days I wasnt able to walk properly. I have asked my colleagues and they told me to go for minimal shoes. Due to covid19, all shops were closed and online delivery from US is still taking lot a time. Recently shops are being opened but they only have some Nike / Adidas shoes which doesnt seem to be minimal. I have already ordered Vibram 5 fingures through amazon but I am not sure when will I receive it. Therefore my question is: How can I still continue my barefoot run on road until I will recieve the shipment of my Vibram. Are there any alternates in Nike or Adidas which anyone can recommend which is closer to minimal so I can check from my local store? What are my options right now other than running on Grass ? Thanks in advance.
