How NOT to buy running Shoes, According to science

In a recent Study by Stanford Medicine we get insight about -how to be or not to be- choosing footwear.

A study led by Stanford bioengineer Scott Delp, PhD, and sports medicine physician Michael Fredericson, MD, looked at running form rather than shoes, exploring whether training runners to strike the ground first with the forefoot rather than the heel could reduce injuries. Sure enough, the forefoot-striking test subjects put less force on their shins and joints when running, likely preventing injuries over time. And that’s just one of severalrecent reports finding that improving running form can keep runners on the road and out of the physical therapist’s office.
