Wet footprint test, not so fast!

For years now the “wet footprint test (or just footprint test)” has been used to determine the correct shoe for each person. New studies show that may not be needed, or any other footprint test.

After using the footprint test and random distribution of shoes for no specific reason, the study found injuries to be equal among both groups. I have worn many different types of shoes, cushioned, stability, motion controlled (really don’t like those though), and minimalist (Nike Free, Puma consesis, etc) and never had any injuries related to the shoes. Some may say that my lingering hip injury is related to shoes, but it is structural and muscular issues.

About runfaraz

I am a guy who loves to run marathons, and has been gifted with exceptionally slow genes which makes for mid pack finishes in races. If I don't run I become an unbalanced manic fool, so yes...running is my prozac. I believe that the key to a happy productive life is balance. Balance in all areas of your life. If one area is out of balance, all others go out of balance. Come back often as I love to see the hit counter go up!!! View all posts by runfaraz
