Barefoot Brooklyn is a group for minimally shod and barefoot runners of all levels of experience. Our group is in it for the sheer fun of running--and it is, when you're barefoot! See our "About" page (linked just below this text) for a few tips and some resources to help get you started.

We're just getting the ball rolling, so all suggestions and ideas are welcome.

If you are curious about barefoot running, but not ready to kick off your shoes, feel free to join us in your sneakers.
