Barefoot enthusiasts say ditching your shoes is essential for optimal whole-body function. Doctors say minimalist shoes cause injury. Who's right? What if they both are? In Whole Body Barefoot, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains how both sides are right and wrong by broadening the perspective of over-simplified "shoes are good" or "shoes are bad" arguments. Using evolutionary-based and biomechanics arguments, Bowman demonstrates that shoes, in a modern context, have purpose, but that the trade-off for protection can be reduced whole-body health if we don?t pick the right shoes for our body and skill-level.

With radical, science-based health directives, Katy Bowman is taking the health-and-wellness world by storm with her bold "exercise is not movement" platform. A biomechanist by training and a problem-solver at heart, she has helped thousands reduce chronic pain, increase bone density, and improve metabolic health through movement and proper alignment. In addition to hosting her podcast KatySays and writing for her award-winning blog KatySays.com, she is a regular source for national health publications like Prevention and Men's Health, and is a sought after guest on radio, television pod-casted talk shows and news segments. Creator of the Aligned and WellTM DVD series, Katy's groundbreaking work in pelvic floor restoration has made her particularly popular with midwives, OBGYNs, and others concerned with pelvic mobility, strength, and health
