Ted McDonalds: Originator of Vibrams
Ted McDonalds is a running enthusiast who has revolutionised the concept of barefoot running in the world. After suffering back problems he experimented with all kinds of shoe variants but could not find a better alternative to his barefeet. He convinced Vibram, a company that made foot gloves for sailors, to let him wear their footgear for running. Vibram is now one of the leading brands of minimal running shoe. Barefoot Ted or the Monkey Man, as he likes to be called, is a devotee of the Lord Hanuman and strong advocate of barefoot running. In the US, the minimalist method has become very popular.
