Barefoot running is healthy28th January 2010
Scientists have found that running barefoot could be better for your legs than jogging in trainers.
They say it encourages the use of a different set of muscles as well as a different gait that avoids repeated heavy impacts between the feet and the ground. Experts who compared barefoot runners with those who use footwear say that wearing modern trainers encourages heavy "heel-striking" between the back of the foot and the ground, whereas barefoot running makes people more "springy" and less likely to hit the ground hard with their feet.
