For a new easygoing approach to running I personally highly recommend the new ‘minimalist shoes’. They are the new era in the footwear industry. Normally, minimal shoes do not contain a heel lift in the shoe. Usually traditional shoes have a 10-14% downhill pitch from the heel to the toe. On the other hand Minimalist shoes have a 0-4% pitch from the heel. These types of shoes help the muscles of the feet to gain more strength than if you were wearing a shoe with a positive heel. In many traditional shoes heels shift and misalign the muscles of the feet and entire body. The whole structure of the foot can function much more perfectly and efficiently when there is not a heel in a shoe. These shoes are very helpful for running trainers .
Generally minimal footwear affects a person’s walking style less than traditional shoes. When a person walks into a shoe which has a positive heel it affects the entire way their body movement. The person unknowingly shifts their pelvic due to stay upright and balanced. Most of the people are experiencing foot related problems because they have not properly trained their feet to get into these types of shoes. When you are doing barefoot running then it forces you to land on your forefoot and mid-foot instead of your heel.
The result is more perfect for transferring of energy; less impact on the joints in your feet, ankles, and knees. It also increases strengthening of the muscles in your feet. So, people are interested to wear these types of shoes. Besides minimalist shoes vivo help to aware you from rocks, sticks, and subtle changes in terrain, and you can actually see the difference between running on grass, pavement, or dirt. Some benefits of minimalist shoes are-
- It makes likely you will land closer to mid-foot, or at least less heavily on your heels.
