Running

Barefoot running

I follow Peter on Dailymile. He has done some terrific videos looking at foot strike of varying shoes. These are Vibrams and to make them work you need to be hitting the deck with your fore foot or mid-sole – opposite to regular runners that promote the heel – toe action.

Forefoot Strike in Vibram Fivefingers – Super Slow Motion from Runblogger on Vimeo.

Anterior view of a running foot strike in Vibram Fivefingers KSO shoes on asphalt filmed at 300fps with a Casio Exilim EX-F1 digital camera – slowed down further in Virtualdub. Contact is initially made on the forefoot, and you can clearly see the ankle pronate after initial contact is made. Courtesy of http://www.runblogger.com.
