Natural feet have all the technology they need, and a healthy shoe should let your feet do their natural thing.
Thin – thin puncture-resistant soles allow the 200,000 nerves in each foot to provide your brain with the sensory feedback you need to move with skill. Thick cushioned soles reduces your feet’s ability to feel the ground, reducing sensory feedback to the brain, resulting in unskilful movement.
Wide – wide shoes allow your toes, crucially your big toes, to provide a stable base of support. Tapered narrow shoes give you shoe-shaped feet, reducing stability and restricting the natural splay and recoil of toes weakening the muscles and foot function.
Flexible – A flexible shoe allows your muscles and tendons to load, splay and recoil putting a natural spring in your step. Supportive rigid shoes cramp your feet and restrict the natural range of movement, weakening the muscles and the foot.
