Steven Sashen grew up as a track sprinter, and then discovered barefoot running. It was a revelation. His running was as strong as ever, but he wasn't getting injured.
Taking a page from the Tarahumara people in Chihuahua, Mexico, Steven decided to create his own minimalist running sandals, and pretty soon his Xero sandals and shoes were a fixture at foot races around the country. Xero Shoes has now grown to become a leader in the minimalist footwear space.
Join us on this episode of the Gear.com Show, as Brig Graff interviews Steven Sashen, founder of Xero Shoes, to get his take on everything from zero-drop shoes to vegan materials. If you've ever wondered how to take your running (or walking, for that matter!) to a whole new place, you'll find a lot of value in hearing it straight from Mr. Sashen himself.
