Barefoot Running: The Science Behind the Fad

Commented Aug 17, 2012 at 01:45:37 in Science

“Thankfully, those aren't just edited pictures. That's actual barefoot runners on the right striking a $10,000+ force plate which measures GRF, with photosensors at each of the joints. The skeleton you're seeing is a computer generated image based on said photosensors. This equipment, and the image you see, are using the latest in biomechanics data collection, researched at one of the most prestigious universities in the field, with some of the most accomplished and published professors regarding this topic in the world. As mentioned in the article, this is using preliminary data collection and is demonstrating trends found so far. Awheewall, mate556, where does YOUR evidence come from to refute this? Are you just arguing because you read, "Born to Run" and maybe another Barnes and Noble bestseller and think you're the expert?”

“Where does MY evidence come from? You want me to demonstrate that there is NO evidence to prove padded running shoes prevent injuries? The burden of proof would be with me if I was trying to argue that there WAS some evidence. I pointed out that the author's comment was misleading, which it is. I never argued with any findings, I merely pointed out that the whole article was lazy recycled rubbish, typical of someone who've never tried this style of running for themselves.”

“Then you found a runner who is running incorrectly, because with barefoot running theory and practice, the foot never lands in front of the hips - that would be an injury waiting to happen barefoot or shod. It is incorrect running form.”
