Just bought expensive running shoes? Throw them away. All good stories about orthotics, fit, stability and settlement of the foot are rubbish and geldklopperij.

Full Translation

Just bought expensive running shoes? Throw them away. All good stories about orthotics, fit, stability and settlement of the foot are rubbish and geldklopperij. This claims Steef Bredeweg sports doctor at the University Medical Center Groningen, which is promoted next week on this subject.
A good shoe prevents injuries anyway? Since everyone is still aware of?

“Nope. If you have the scientific literature in a row set, it appears that this lamentable little research has been done. It is called anything but a good foundation is missing. There is no scientific evidence that insoles, dampers, or video analytics have a beneficial effect on the body. ”

What should we wear?

“Simple. A shoe that is good.”

Are all running aches than last time?

“No, an injury is always lurking. 95 percent of the injuries are mainly caused by overloading. In training we want too fast and too much. The neighbor is running the marathon, so we should be able to. To avoid injuries a runner should pay particular attention to the reaction of his body, such as pain and stiffness, and not on his schedule or the quality of his shoes. ”

Is this new information for all those shoes manufacturers?

“No, they know this already. I dare to say that they have been deceived. Runners By them in many runners fear arise: if I do not buy good shoes, I run the risk of injury. That message has led to a huge marketing success. Manufacturers find it increasingly closer to science. For example, there’s been some minimalist shoes on the market, a kind of imitation of bare feet. Be sure to follow the next few years, new technologies that hold the shoe sales to date. ”

And run barefoot?

“I recommend, with all those stones and pieces of glass on the road. That are no longer used our feet. And our muscles become lazy, since we walk in shoes. Running barefoot can, but you have to build up slowly. ”
