Minimalist footwear: A risky switch for runners?
from Lower Extremity Review
For the majority of evolutionary history, runners were either barefoot or wore minimalist footwear lacking the cushioning of today's running shoes. Barefoot or minimally shod runners demonstrate differences in kinematics and impact forces compared with those wearing modern running shoes, and some research suggests barefoot running may confer biomechanical advantages over more cushioned footwear.
