Shoespiracy - Full Edit (Vivobarefoot mini-documentary)
This is an 8 minute documentary produced by Vivobarefoot.

In terms of marketing, I hear the docu-series format (like Money Revealed) is as effective as VSLs were in 2006 right now (2019), so we should look into this for SFP.

Xero Shoes Sprints To Success Despite Kicking Shark Tank Offer To The Curb
Great business advice, but I'm bookmarking mostly for this quote:

"When I was 45, I got back into sprinting after a 30-year break. For the next two years, I was getting injured constantly. A world champion cross-country runner I know suggested I try running barefoot to see if that helped.

I tried it and immediately discovered the form problems that were causing my injuries. More, from that awareness, they solved themselves. My injuries went away; I developed arches in my life-long flat feet. And within a year, I was a Masters All-American sprinter and one of the fastest guys my age in the country."

"1) Foot mobility work

Spending years in narrow, supportive shoes creates a stiff and weak foot. This exercise helps restore mobility in the joints of the feet and wake up the muscles that often become tight and unable to function properly.

Dosage: 1 minute going from heel to toe, 1 minute from side to side with the heel on the ground as a pivot point. Apply enough pressure that it creates mild discomfort (like a deep massage). 2 minutes per foot done several times daily will give powerful results when done consistently.

2) Hip mobility work

Spending many hours a day sitting in a chair tightens up the muscles at the front of your hip and steals away your ability to use your glutes (also causing low back pain and inability to generate torque at the hip joint which creates flat feet)

To offset the sitting position this exercise should be done for 1 minute per hip for each hour you sit during the day. 8 hours of sitting (car, meetings, at work) means 8 minutes of this mobilization per hip just to offset those 8 hours.


3) Upper glute reset

The upper glute is an important muscle for generating torque and stability at the hip joint and in a lot of people its locked up and can't do its job. Your hip creates the arch downstream at the foot and without this muscles online its hard to restore your arch.

Spend 2 minutes per side working on this daily until its hard to find tender spots. Once you get to that point you can start working on activating and strengthening the muscle in patterns that help restore a strong, stable arch at the foot.

Why aren't shoes shaped like feet? - Quora
Interesting that they say that it's widely known that shoes that are slightly tight (1-2 sizes smaller than your casual shoes) increase performance. This is practiced in soccer, not sure if performance increases in all sports or just soccer.

"How can they imagine that this foot will fit into this (a pointy women's shoe)?" ---- For a long time, I've thought that if I ever started a shoe company, this (actually a better variation of it) would be the thing that we lead our marketing efforts with. "We have one simple idea: If the human foot is shaped like this, why are everyone else's shoes shaped like this?" -------- See similar idea bookmarked 2015-10-07.

The benefits of walking barefoot outdoors on natural surfaces is well documented. Here's a documentary that follows a study done on 1700 residents of a town in Alaska.

Mick Dodge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Since 1991 he has been living barefoot, a decision that he believed helped cure him of plantar fasciitis, back pain and hammer toes. He also felt that it helped him connect more intuitively with the natural world.

Vibram Five Fingers: Discover the Barefooting Alternative
This is not a particularly good website, but the copy along the bottom is interesting (though it goes against the Tim Ferris "describe your product in ONE sentence) "The typical human foot is an anatomical marvel of evolution with 26 bones, 33 muscles and hundreds of sensory receptors, tendons and ligaments. Like the rest of the body, to keep our feet healthy, they need to be stimulated and exercised. That’s why we recommend wearing FiveFingers for exercise, play, and for fun. Stimulating the muscles in your feet and lower legs will not only make you stronger and healthier, it improves your balance, agility and proprioception."

Vibram Five Fingers Shoes: The Barefoot Alternative
It was the second day of Pavel’s RKC kettlebell course, and I’d seen more than a few people wearing what appeared to be gecko feet. The sheer goofiness compelled me to ask Rudy Tapalla, a CrossFit instructor from Chicago, why on earth he would put these ridiculous gloves on his toes. He seemed to have good mojo — he was shorter than me but had a vertical jump to match Michael Jordan — so I figured he might have good reasons. ................ This is the article with the picture of the aboriginal / native feet vs the Westerner's feet.
