Coming Soon - Barefoot Running for Beginners

Due out next week is a new book by Dr. Craig Richards and Thomas Hollowell which covers the rationale and techniques for both barefoot running and running with minimal footwear.

We were excited to learn that Soft Star RunAmocs are included in their reviews of minimal footwear and given 10 out of "10 Toes"!

Dr. Craig Richards is an expert of the barefoot running revolution. His work has been widely reported by the media via major newspapers such as the New York Times, The Washington Post and London's Daily Mail, in magazines such as Running Times and Popular Mechanics, as well as in the recent best-selling book, Born to Run. Thomas Hollowell is a full-time author, USAT triathlete, international marathoner, and a prominent barefoot runner. His work on health, fitness, and lifestyle has appeared in notable publications worldwide. He uses his barefoot running expertise to coach runners in a triathlon club abroad.


  1. I'm an avid fan of barefoot running and I've read Born to Run as well which I found it quite informative. I hope I can learn a lot from this book as I'm still a beginner and I want to start everything right. By the way, there are new studies that show barefoot running shoes can also emulate barefoot running. Check out this article - Barefoot Running vs. Barefoot Running shoes.
  2. Hooray! Congrats, Soft Star, for the inclusion in the book! My two boys were first introduced to Soft Stars as wee ones, taking their first steps. I love the idea that their favorite shoes can grow with them, no matter how far they plan on running!
