To shoe or not to shoe? – Running and Technology

More Than a Pair of Shoes: Running and Technology

Here’s a good clip from an interview Dr Andrew Franklyn-Miller did on RTE’s Morning Edition. I especially like what he says about pronation during gait.

I think the peer-reviewed jury is still out on the optimal foot-strike for injury and performance (there just isn’t enough data published yet), but if anyone knows, it’ll be Dr Franklyn-Miller with his vast experience in the clinic…just hurry up and publish something!!!!
