If you start on a hard surface you will have no choice but to run with good form, everything else will be painful. You can then "treat" your feet to the dessert of running on grass or sand.

Running barefoot on hard surfaces right off the bat is a good way to develop plantar fasciitis, which is very bad.

I used to play ball outside in my feet every day. Eventually I didnt mind playing on gravely pavement. Could play how I played in shoes. I had no issues. Only did it for about half the year. Then it became cold and I went into hibernation.

Only if you overdo it. With barefoot running it is extremely important to listen to your body, it will tell you when to stop or keep going. Proper form is key.

There's a lot of retards running barefoot just cause "it's cool" nowadays, they don't know it takes a long time for the muscles to get used to, and there's a need for getting a better technique too, which most of them don't have as they're newbies.

Where are they running? I imagine running on the pavement is bad for your bones altogether.

It's all about technique/form. Heel striking is extremely rough on the knees and joints. Some people get away with it but it causes a lot of injuries.

Good points. Just wanted to clarify that he is NOT heel striking, even though it looks like he could be in the picture. Heel striking while running barefoot is extremely painful. I'm not sure if you were implying this but I wnated to check.

No I agree with you, I should have wrote "not heelstriking".

IMO, having a good technique's far more important than how you strike the floor.
You can heel strike with good technique and have no injuries, and you can strike with the forefoot and destroy your body.
People focus way too much on their feet and that 180 strides per min bullshit.
