There is so much poor information given out regarding what shoes you should or should not wear. The truth is, there is no evidence that says one shoe is better than another.
Usually people ask “will changing shoes make me less likely to get injured?” or “will getting new shoes make them their current injury better?”. Honestly…… it may make some difference but it won’t be the only solution.
Take home points:
- Comfort is king
- The wet sand foot test is not a reliable way to choose your footwear
- Understand what type of shoe you like and the features that make that shoe good for you in the scenario you need to use it
- Injuries can occur in any shoe. Managing tissue load/stress is important and different types of shoe will load different tissues
