Barefoot/Minimalism Running and Heel Striking

by admin on April 25, 2014

The widely held assumption is that heel striking is associated with the use of more traditional running shoes with padding under the heel and forefoot/midfoot striking is more associated with barefoot or minimal running shoes. The probable reason is the comfort of heel strike with a padded shoe and the somewhat discomfort associated with the use of no padding under the heel. Obviosuly you can forefoot/midfoot strike in a running shoe with a padded heel and we have all seen the occasional example of someone in a minimal shoe or no shoe heel striking
