    Nice to see we are getting a good response on this forum now!!!! ;)

    What are you guys running in?



    I am slowly staring to run barefoot and got a pair of DIY Huaraches sandals from www.invisibleshoe.com

    I had no problem ordering from them over the internet and the prices are very reasonable!!!

    I am looking at getting some fivefingers when the the budget allows!!! :p

    South Africa is a very small

    South Africa is a very small chapter, Warren. We would love to have an IBRD there. Are you able to find at least one person to run barefoot with you on May 1? Seriously? If so, we can make it an IBRD.

    Hi Warren. All the best in

    Hi Warren. All the best in getting started. I love South Africa. I recently returned from training school principals from all over the country. I am starting small here on Siesta Key, FL for an IBRD event. Already have a few from nearby joining me.

    All the best..

    Hi everyone,I am a new

    Hi everyone,

    I am a new member and still fairly new to barefooting. I have neen running in VFF's for around 8/9months...I think, and have just recently taken the plunge to au natural.



    Still only short distances (4-6km) but I try to run that every second day. I am still doing some longer runs in the VFF's or for longer still, a pair of Nike Free running shoes

    Although I am running shorter distances, I have never felt a stronger,faster runner ( Well...faster than I was shod :) )

    Anyway, I am very glad that there are others out there!

    I am based in Johannesburg, (Montgomery Park) do you guys ever get together for a run?

    Welcome, Impi!  Be sure and

    Welcome, Impi! Be sure and join the South Africa chapter here: http://barefootrunners.org/chapters/south-africa Then feel free to "Create a Chapter Posting," and pose your question there, since this forum is used very little, and posting through the chapter will actually create an email to go to each member of the chapter there, so they're bound to get your message that way.

    Ek hardloop altyd kaalvoet.

    Ek hardloop altyd kaalvoet. Dis goed om te sien dat die Siud-Afrikaanse chapter nou 'n paar lede het.

    Hi to all the Saffa's.

    I bought my Xeroshoes online from http://www.runningwildsa.net/
    They have really great products and always a bargain in their bargain section.
