Barefoot hiking

Came across this article from John Tesh...his radio show is on 94.5fm every week night 7-12. Barefoot hiking http://tesh.com/ittrium/visit?path=A1xc797x1y1xa5x1x76y1x2437x1x9by1x243cx1y5x4804x5x1 I have come across hikers in sandels before but never bare feet. This sounds extreme but I guess it must have been done before the invention of shoes and is done in other countries. Here is the "official website" for barefoot hiking http://www.barefooters.org/hikers/ Not sure if this new (or re-born) take on hiking will take route in NH. Guess I'll have to keep an eye out!


  1. I think barefoot hiking might be for way back when peopl;e may have discoverd they could find new things to see. They didn't care about their foot injuries. Even today in the marathons, the Kenyans wear Niki!!!!

  2. I got information from http://forum.hike-nh.com/viewtopic.php?t=1812 on vibram five fingers for beginners but would work good for water shoes to i would suppose. http://hikethesummits.blogspot.com/2009/06/barefoot-hiking.html#comments
