Walking, running and sprinting. When running however, Lee Saxby explains that the biomechanical behaviour of the foot reverses; essentially we land on the ball of the foot and then follow with the heel. The Achilles tendon and plantar fascia then can act as springs to help propel us forward in an energy-efficient manner. Sprinting takes running one step further.
When we sprint, only the ball of the foot touches the ground. If you take a look at the biomechanics of a jogger, you will see a similar pattern as a walker. Heel-toe, heel-toe. The eBook states that this movement pattern is not natural.
If we did not have cushioned shoes, the sensory feedback from our feet would tell us to change our biomechanics from heel-toe to landing on our forefoot. Have you ever tried running barefoot on cement with a heel-strike? It hurts! Because our feet have such a large percentage of stretch receptors to inform our brain of our interaction with our surrounding environment, thick shoes limit the amount of information being sent back to our brains.
The brain is basically on an information diet and does not have ample data to move our body with quality movement patterns. Humans have a problem. Our brain requires the information provided by stretch receptors, but if we left our feet totally exposed to allow the sensory information to flow, our feet are left in a vulnerable position.
Just imagine you live in Manhattan and you run or walk to work barefoot.
Humans are smart. To combat the lack of padding on our feet and to survive in a wide range of landscapes and climates our brain power helped us utilize animal skins and furs to amply protect our feet.
Footwear That Makes Sense Lee Saxby believes that humans require shoes that allow the foot to behave exactly as it would bare, while also providing protection from the environment. There are four criteria you should consider when purchasing a barefoot running shoe: The shoe must permit sensory feedback back to your brain in order to run naturally.
In other words, the shoe cannot be overly cushioned and encourage your foot into unnatural biomechanics. The sole of the shoe should protect your feet from extreme temperatures and be puncture-proof.
