The same is true for running with shoes, except the injury risk moves up towards the shins and knees. It's always wise to ease yourself into something.

It also seems funny to me that barefoot is the theoretic one, opposed to the science behind running shoes. Barefoot has been the default since the stone ages, running shoes are new and theoretic. Would a cat benefit from running shoes? Why is barefoot running not a theory for them but reality? Why are we different?
