I was wondering if you could point me to a video of runners with a good view of their feet landing. I heard landing toe to heel is the way to go but it seems akward to me.

It is very simple to see what ball-heel-ball running is like...just take off your shoes and run.

If you land on your heels, it will feel awkward.

Go to to read about running form.

Are you still selling Vibram Huaraches? If so, I would be very interested in purchasing some. Email me at
Thank you

Yes, I am selling the huaraches.

They are not Vibram huaraches. They are Vibram-soled huaraches.

I really do not think that any shoe company will ever make a simple huarache...the way they should be made. They are just too simple..., yet fully functional.

Less = More

Yes, I am making them and selling them. I have learned some new tricks too after my last trip down to the Copper Canyon.

If you want to order, send me the outlines of your feet along with a mark where the gap is between you big and second toe.

Send to:

Barefoot Ted's Adventures
11001 Peoria St.
Sun Valley, CA 91352

You can include a check for $45.00 to cover making the shoes and shipping them back to you, or you can PayPal me at:

Hey Ted my name is Marcel Uttech and I have just finished reading the Book 'Born to Run'. My mind was blown with so much new information to ponder on my long runs! I am a member of the Lapham Peak Trail Runners here in WI, and just finished my first ultra this year. I am totally into trail running and going long! I have been looking into the Vibram five finger shoes to use for training in while I am hoping to make the transition to "less is more". I am interested in these sandals you make- think I could order a pair from you? Please let me know what I need to do! I can be reached at
Would sure appreciate any help on this! So let me get this right,Scott beat Arnulfo the next time around? wow. I am fascinated by your life of adventure! Man you are living the dream! Happy Trails Ted!
