Interesting review of the “Born to Run” book plus a very interesting testimonial:- 

There is a tribe in Mexico that runs either barefoot and sandals, over a hundred of miles at a time and do not have injuries.  We have become so dependent on running shoes that are legs and feet have become weaker, hence all the achilles, knee injuries, stress fractures shin splints.  When you do not run with all of the cushioning you are using different muscles that make your legs and feet stronger.  I have never had an injury running until i bought my first pari of shoes that cost more than $45.
