Barefoot marathoning: A healthier way to run?

What has the medical community said?
Plenty. Medical professionals quoted in The Times claim “there is no scientific research that shows barefoot running reduces injuries.” Other doctors believe that while shoeless running isn’t inherently dangerous, “bare feet aren’t meant to support running on modern day hard-top surfaces.” For all of running shoes’ flaws, they “excel at diminishing the force of impact on hard ground.”
