Barefoot Running Vs. Regular Running

forefoot running

Are you a forefoot runner or a heel striker? Maybe you fall somewhere in between? Well, this video shows how your shoe affects your stride and explains how the different strikes can lead to injury over time.

Barefoot running isn’t always the best option, but in many cases, running in a minimalist shoe can drastically improve running form and increase your speed. Neutral running shoes offer support and stability that can actually impact your form in a negative way forcing you into an energy-depleting heel strike motion.

Watch this video for a side-by-side comparison of the two running styles and learn tips fromĀ Advance reporter and Nike Running Flatiron athlete, Jeremy Mulvey.
