Nature News has just published an article about Harvard professor Daniel Lieberman who has ditched his trainers and started running barefoot. His research shows that barefoot runners, who tend to land on their fore-foot, generate less impact shock than runners in sports shoes who land heel first. This makes barefoot running comfortable and could minimize running-related injuries. A short video about the study can be found here.
The full article on the Nature News web site is here.
