Orthotic to barefoot transition ...
- View SourceI have been using Orthotics for about 6 months now and I was wondering
if its possible to go from orthoitcs to running barefoot. I mean does
any have any experience with this?

couple weeks, then 10 minutes for a couple weeks, then
push it up little by little.

- View SourceI have been wearing orthotics for years. I found very little
discomfort when I first began to run barefoot. A slight pain in my
arch. I'm assuming my muscles were beginning to be used properly but
it soon went away quickly. I also took my time building up my
distance. I would run a mile every other day for a week then increase
gradually from there. I also ran on grass for the first month just so
I took it easy on my feet as they adjusted.
