More on Shoes…

As an evangelist on the “least possible shoe” mantra, the running community is split on 2 camps: minimalist design or maximum cushion. As a podiatry practitioner and a runner myself, I advocate for a holistic approach – “wear that right shoes for your signature gait (walking style) and for your activity”.

“… There is no high-level evidence that any running shoe design can prevent injuries”

Chris Napier, a physiotherapist at the University of British Columbia
