Background and Purpose: Previous studies have demonstrated an increase in foot pronation with mileage in runners. Motion control footwear was designed to check excessive foot motions, but its clinical efficacy, especially in terms of pedographic analysis, has not been well reported. The purposes of this study were to investigate the changes in plantar force in people when running with motion control shoes and to compare pedographic measurements obtained in 2 footwear testing conditions (wearing…

Effects of motion control footwear on running: A systematic review

Motion control footwear was effective in reducing the amount of foot pronation and the peak vertical impact during landing and there is no evidence that suggests motion control footwear for controlling kinematics of the proximal segments.

The effect of three different levels of footwear stability on pain outcomes in women runners: a randomised control trial

The findings of this study suggest that the current approach of prescribing in-shoe pronation control systems on the basis of foot type is overly simplistic and potentially injurious.

A Pilot Study of the Effect of Outsole Hardness on Lower Limb Kinematics and Kinetics during Soccer Related Movements

A higher vertical loading rate and plantar pressure of some areas may increase the potential risk of metatarsal stress fractures and Plantar fasciitis and give some theoretic support for the design of turf cleats shoes and material optimization in the future.

No immediate effects of highly cushioned shoes on basic running biomechanics

Overall, there was no effect of footwear on IP, LR, AP, CT and velocity and the results indicate that the highly cushioned shoes did not show immediate changes in running biomechanics.

A Comparison of Cleated Footwear Conditions and the Effects on Ground Reaction Forces During the Phases of a Side-Cut Task

Within sports and athletics, one area of interest is finding methods to increase the performance of athletes while simultaneously minimizing their risk for injury. In two of today’s most popular

Effect of soccer footwear on landing mechanics

The results suggest that landing mechanics differ based upon gender, footwear, and the type of landing, and training interventions aimed at reducing lower‐extremity injury should consider utilizing sport‐specific footwear when assessing movement patterns.

Effects of Different Footwear on Vertical Jump and Landing Parameters

Athletes and coaches interested in enhancing single and multiple VJs might consider either BF or minimalist shoes, which had greater relative peak power in the VJ than bare feet.

Effects of footwear choice amongst field hockey participants on factors influencing overuse injuries

Abstract Field hockey is a popular sport played worldwide. Due to the demands of the game, injuries are common, restricting participation. Injuries occur due to a single traumatic event or are due

The effects of systematically altered footwear features on biomechanics, injury, performance, and preference in runners of different skill level: a systematic review

Abstract Matching running footwear features to the functional needs of specific groups of runners stratified according to their training status or running experience has the potential to improve

Computer simulation of the effects of shoe cushioning on internal and external loading during running impacts

This study uses a subject-specific computer simulation approach to estimate internal and external loading of the distal tibia during the impact phase for two runners when running in shoes with different midsole cushioning parameters and suggests the GRF loading rate is a better surrogate measure of tibial loading and stress fracture risk than theGRF magnitude.



The effects of shoe design parameters on rearfoot control in running.

It was found that shoes with soft midsoles allowed significantly more maximum pronation (MP) and total rearfoot movement (TRM) than shoes with either medium (35 durometers) or hard (45 durometer) midsoles.

Effects of three different posting methods on controlling abnormal subtalar pronation.

Clinicians should consider combined posting or rear- foot posting alone when maximal control of rear-foot frontal-plane pronation is desired, though forefoot posting alone and the orthotic shell also provide control of Rear- foot frontal- plane pronation.

The effects of shoes on the torsion and rearfoot motion in running.

The purpose of this investigation was to show whether the pronation angle and the torsion angle differ when running barefoot, with spikes, and with running shoes and to reduce the risk of injury.

The influence of lateral heel flare of running shoes on pronation and impact forces.

It was concluded that more research is needed to specify whether the reported result is representative for various shoe types or is shoe specific, as well as to explain the results with a mechanical model.

The Influence of Heel Counter Rigidity on Rearfoot Motion during Running

The results showed that only the more rigid shoes tended to create significant differences between calcaneal and shoe heel eversion during ground contact, except close to heel-strike, and the rigid shoe thus resisted eversional forces.

The effect of soft foot orthotics on three-dimensional lower-limb kinematics during walking and running.

This study shows that corrections to the static position of forefoot varus and calcaneal valgus can result in changes in transverse- and frontal-plane motion of the foot and knee during walking and running.

Effects of shoe sole construction on skeletal motion during running.

It is concluded that the tibiocalcaneal kinematics of running may be individually unique and that shoe sole modifications may not be able to change them substantially.
