    This video gives me goosebumps every time I watch it – It’s so pure, flowing and powerful – and the passion behind it is evident. Amazing work Mark!

      thank you for all you are doing to return golfers to their roots too and get them walking in your flat barefoot style TrueLinkswear shoes.

    Excellent video. Do you find that to run for extended periods of time barefoot is something that you have to build up to slowly? Obviously modern running shoes offer quite a lot of cushioning on the heel, so without that, does the “jolting” cause any knee issues?
