Running shoe reveal: Study links max cushioning, higher load
from Lower Extremity Review
Researchers from the Spaulding National Running Center at the Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have found that running in highly cushioned shoes is not associated with lower impact forces than conventional running shoes. Instead, the investigators found highly cushioned shoes result in a significantly higher vertical average load rate and vertical instantaneous loading rate, both of which have been associated with overuse injuries such as tibial stress fractures and plantar fasciitis.
