My feet are pretty ugly

See how my pinky toes curl under and my big toes are squashed? OK, not totally ugly, but they've been ruined from shoes that aren't designed to fit feet, but instead designed for aesthetics. 

I’ve been wearing shoes my whole life. Most shoe makers don’t think about proper foot mechanics. They think about fashion.

As a PrimalHacker, I’m well aware that going barefoot is best

Correct Toes Barefoot

Going barefoot is supposed to help our feet become more natural again

But many of us can’t always go barefoot

Office Work

Most of the month, I work from home and can go barefoot. I've been doing this for the last 8 years...

And still, my feet have not unfurled

I bought some barefoot shoes 2 years ago and started wearing them whenever I left home, so I wasn't wearing shoes that compromised my feet when I went out or traveled for work

And still, my feet stay in a compromised position

Then I heard from Dr. Ray McClanahan, the Barefoot Podiatrist, on the ReWild Yourself podcast with Daniel Vitalis


Dr. Ray invented a product called Correct Toes

Thaddeus began his journey outdoors, camping and fishing as a boy in the Adirondacks and Central NY forests. After a decade spent developing pharmaceutical products, he just couldn’t face another day adding terrible ingredients like high fructose corn syrup and numerous red dyes into children’s medicine. He shifted gears and engineered a successful work from home assignment following Tim Ferriss’s 4 Hour Workweek. From there, he was able to find a way to incorporate more movement, nature and sunshine into his work environment.

After learning about biohacking from the man who coined the term, Dave Asprey, Thaddeus healed his own anxiety, lowered his blood pressure and fixed his sleeplessness using biohacking, PrimalHacking and Qigong. He spends his free time experimenting on himself in hopes of helping others on their journey. He writes about his experiments on PrimalHacker.com. He also spends time with his two boys learning martial arts, shooting arrows at targets and hiking.
