Suitable sports with the Paleos®
Greater awareness of the earth means better body coordination.This is especially true for sports where environmental feedback from our skin is important for stability, for smooth movement, and for energy efficiency. Whether on water or on land, these stimuli are also essential for the identification of hazards.
Our feet in particular are equipped with an extremely dense array of nerves. These nerves end here in the feet… or perhaps it is more accurate to say that all the major nerves of the body start here. The information these nerves receive from the environment (heat, humidity, etc.), are transmitted to all parts of the body and cause compensatory biological responses. For example, everyone knows the relaxing effect of a foot massage.
A technology as unique as your feet!The more directly the feet are exposed to ambient environmental conditions, the more precisely the body can react to them. Even regular minimalist shoes shield and disguise these stimuli. On the other hand, the PaleoBarefoots® allow air, water and the ambient temperature to quickly and easily reach the skin Because of the flexible nature of the chainmail fabric mechanical stimuli, triggered by the soil structures, are also brought into sharper focus.
Sports which benefit from the PaleoBarefoots®:Incidentally, because of the ring mesh's structure (like scales) PaleoBarefoots® have particularly good grip characteristics on natural surfaces, no matter how uneven or textured.
The advantages of frequent barefoot running:
Below you'll find an introductory list of the many benefits barefoot running can offer. If Properly managed and perhaps under therapeutic supervision, they can function as a natural remedy with no harmful side effects. Follow our tips for beginners and migrators: there you'll find even more relevant information.► Hydrotherapy & Reflexology: Important stimulation of our biological systems including
► the management of temperature control by blood circulation. (Impervious soles prevent
► the exchange of temperature and humidity).
► Body awareness: Barefoot running causes intensive feedback stimuli that are absorbed
► through the soles of the feet. Clear stimuli lead to clear reactions and clear responses.
► Blood circulation: By freeing the entire foot structure, your legs and feet will get much
► better circulation. This in turn will support the currents of neural receptors and pathways.
► Foot climate: Closed shoes act like greenhouses and promote the proliferation of fungi
► and bacteria. Because of the stainless steel ring mesh, the PaleoBarefoots® are hygienic
► and offer an excellent climate for feet.
► Foot muscles: In shoes, the foot muscles atrophy. The mobility of the toes, for example,
► as known by young children (grabbing, spreading the toes, etc.), becomes curtailed.
► Tactile and gripping reflexes: Barefoot runners "scan" the subsoil with their feet and are
► actively connected with the ground. Natural reflexes come back, feet become stronger,
► posture improves, and risk of injury is decreased!
► Training of senses: Up to 200,000 nerve tracts end or begin in our feet. There are biological
► reasons why there just are so many. Without training and utilizing them regularly, you begin
► to lose the closeness to nature when compared to the body's other major senses.
► Circulation systems: Improved massage by the soil structure stimulates circulation,
► and trains and supports the body's own systems such as venous valves and vein structure.
► Agility, spreading, grasping: In fashionable shoes, the toes are often pushed together
► and are not able to interact individually. When there is enough space they spread and start
► to work individually, which optimizes posture both standing and in motion.
► Longitudinal and transverse arch: Longitudinal and transverse arch: Independent
► orthopedics and physical therapists recommend that patients with foot disorders run
► barefoot. Various muscles and ligaments form the arch in our feet. This otherwise
► passive system must be constantly strengthened and stabilized.
► Body posture: Because it is uncomfortably hard to land on the heel, barefoot runners
► instinctively shift their weight towards to the forefoot section. To compensate, the body
► must align differently and overallposture improves.
► Proprioceptive training: Running barefoot on uneven, varied natural flooring offers
► more variety, is more natural, and provides more effective training.
► Emotional Balance: Emotional Balance: Barefoot running and Paleos® running promotes
► a positive mood bygrounding you and improving your perception and the awareness of the
► world around you.
