barefoot running vs "shod" running

interesting bc i noticed i trot on my tippy toes when i'm in thins shoes/shoes w/ lil to no support (ex. just went to the bank and while crossing the street i pretty much pranced across the street)...down side to barefoot/heel & forefront landing is possible calf and achilles injuries

whereas folks who wear shoes tend to land on their heels more, thankfully shoes have cushion to absorb some of the impact.
