You can fully enjoy the grounding effect claimed in Earthing Theory only when you wear shoes with minimal functionality close to bare feet or walk barefoot. The grounding effect means that various materials on the ground press each reflex area of the sole, and this natural acupressure is also the secret to health emphasized by Sbonsdo. In short, this book covers four shoe theories: barefoot walking, sbons, earthing, and shoe minimalism.
In 'Chapter 1 Why Walk?', the reason for walking is widely considered. As transportation has developed, mankind has evolved in a direction where there is no need to walk. Nevertheless, the walking culture is rather spreading, from small walks to the Santiago pilgrimage route. This book sheds light on the causes from various medical, social, and economic perspectives.
In 'Chapter 2 Walking and Human Body Structure', various parts of the human body are analyzed using Sbonsdo as a magnifying glass. In Sbondo, the basis of body balance is the sole of the foot, and among them, the activation of the nerves spread in the toes is assumed as the starting point of natural healing power. So, the Sbones diagram is very good at explaining how the feet, ankles, knees, hip joints, spine, calves, cervical vertebrae, and head are affected when walking.
'Chapter 3 Walking and Shoes' outlines the characteristics of dress shoes, everyday shoes, medical shoes, and earthing shoes. And it refutes the conventional wisdom that shoes should be cushioned. In fact, the cushion does not reduce the impact force itself applied to the joint, but only reduces the sensation of impact. It also tells you that good shoes for walking should have a wide toe box and almost no heel.
