Running with shoes was a craze that began around 10 years ago and lasted a couple of years. This grew to be very popular however faded away equally as fast as it showed up. It had been dependant upon the principle that running shoes aren't useful to you and that running with out them is more natural and better for runners. There was plenty of books written and published on this, lots of websites supporting the promises and plenty of social media activity proclaiming the alleged benefits. Nonetheless, what happened is the fact that the benefits which were assumed for it didn't worked out for nearly all runners which took barefoot running up and there was a very high exercise related injury incidence in runners who tried it out. Athletes before long returned to what they were acquainted with and all the guru’s who started off promoting barefoot running are no longer heard from.
There was no studies that barefoot running was actually any better. It had been generally made up claims depending on anecdotes. When the research got done it revealed that many of the claims that got made up for it were exactly that, made up. The benefits over using running shoes are just not there. Barefoot running is merely different to running in shoes. Since the barefoot craze died off, there was a conversion to much more highly padded running shoes. It was the exact opposite to the craze of barefoot and it too got termed as a fad. However, at present there are no indication of that trend to the higher padded running shoes dropping off, so it will be in all probability safe to say that its not simply a fad but a long term trend. Running barefoot or with traditional running shoes or using maximal cushioned running shoes are simply distinct. One is not better than another and individual athletes will have their individual inclinations in regards to what they prefer to run in which is okay.
