According to Jörg Peitzker, the inventor of Paleo Barefoots chainmail running shoes, running barefoot is beneficial because it provides complete feedback. However, this increases the risk that you could step on something dangerous or hurt yourself. The problem with traditional running shoes though, is that they isolate the runner from the road and increase the chance of injury to joints. His chainmail runners hope to strike the perfect balance between the two by increasing path feedback while preventing you from stepping on painful things.

Rubber bits on the bottom of the shoes also offer great traction, compared to running barefoot. The high performance running gear lets you become more connected to the environment around you while improving your health. If you are a runner, this product is definitely worth looking into.
