Minimalistic Running: Is Naked Next?

Barefoot running. No Nike or ASICS on your feet.

No shirt. No socks. No bandana.

If the running minimalism religion takes off, who will Runner's World sell ads to? Lady Godiva Running Club? That issue would sell better than the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.

The idea of being free from things contraining a good run is important, but the marketing trend push it as an idealogy seems counter to the point.
