10 myths of Barefoot running

If you are looking for more analysis and opinion on barefoot running, 10 myths of it are covered in this post on Podiatry today. (H/T's to Runblogger and Yelling Stop) Unfortunately, the post is a multi-page that you have to click through to get all the info, but it is advertising-free. The post is well-referenced (although I admit not being familiar with the podiatric literature). Interestingly, the author, Dr. Campitelli, considers orthotics to be overused by podiatrists. In the concluding material, he does disclose being a scientific adviser to Vibram (here is a link to his practice website)
