The purpose of this study was to investigate the oxygen cost of running barefoot vs. running shod on the treadmill as well as overground. 10 healthy recreational runners, 5 male and 5 female, whose mean age was 23.8±3.39 volunteered to participate in the study. Subjects participated in 4 experimental conditions: 1) barefoot on treadmill, 2) shod on treadmill, 3) barefoot overground, and 4) shod overground. For each condition, subjects ran for 6 min at 70% vVO (2)max pace while VO (2), heart… Expand
Metabolic responses of running shod and barefoot in mid-forefoot runners.
TLDR
In trained mid-forefoot runners experienced with barefoot running, there are not significant metabolic differences between shod and barefootRunning conditions. Expand
Mechanical and physiological examination of barefoot and shod conditions in female runners.
TLDR
It was found that moderate to large effect sizes suggested there were biomechanical changes that ensured between conditions that would translate into improved distance race performance while running barefoot or with minimalist footwear. Expand
Metabolic cost of running barefoot versus shod: is lighter better?
TLDR
Running barefoot offers no metabolic advantage over running in lightweight, cushioned shoes and for footwear conditions of equal mass, shod running had ∼3%-4% lower V˙O(2) and metabolic power demand than barefoot running (P < 0.05). Expand
The effect of running barefoot and in barefoot-style footwear on running economy at two self-determined speeds.
TLDR
No statistical RE benefit was found when running barefoot over FTMS or SCRS, possibly explained by a SF adaptation at higher speeds, however, practically speaking, when shoe mass is controlled for, footwear choice has a moderate but worthwhile effect on RE. Expand
Metabolic Differences Between Shod and Barefoot Walking in Children.
TLDR
At a natural walking speed, barefoot walking is more economical than shod walking at the same velocity in children, but the higher energy cost of shod Walking should be considered when evaluating the use of footwear by children. Expand

Barefoot running improves economy at high intensities and peak treadmill velocity.
TLDR
Barefoot running improves RE at high exercise intensities and increases vVO2max and vmax, but further research is required to clarify the influence of very light shoe weights on RE. Expand
Four‐week habituation to simulated barefoot running improves running economy when compared with shod running
TLDR
Evaluated effects of a 4‐week familiarization to simulated barefoot running (SBR) on running economy (RE) when compared with shod running found that RE improved in the SBR condition as a result of familiarization, and became significantly lower in SBR compared withShod running. Expand
Comparison of Running Economy Values While Wearing No Shoes, Minimal Shoes, and Normal Running Shoes
TLDR
Determination of footwear for the enhancement of RE should be based on individual physical characteristics and preferences rather than a global recommendation of an economical running shoe. Expand
Changes in sagittal plane kinematics with treadmill familiarization to barefoot running.
TLDR
The results indicate that adequate familiarization should be given in future studies before gait assessment of barefoot treadmill running, as familiarization was characterized by less plantar flexion and greater knee flexion at touchdown. Expand

Barefoot-shod running differences: shoe or mass effect?
TLDR
The mechanical modifications of running showed that the main role of the shoe was to attenuate the foot-ground impact by adding damping material which may lead to a decrease of the storage and restitution of elastic energy capacity which could explain the lower net efficiency reported in shod running. Expand
Mechanical comparison of barefoot and shod running.
TLDR
Barefoot running leads to a reduction of impact peak in order to reduce the high mechanical stress occurring during repetitive steps, and this neural-mechanical adaptation could also enhance the storage and restitution of elastic energy at ankle extensors level. Expand
Biomechanical and physiological comparison of barefoot and two shod conditions in experienced barefoot runners.
TLDR
The data of this study support the assumption that changes in the foot-ground interface led to changes in running pattern in a group of experienced barefoot runners and the Fivefingers model seems to be effective in imitating the barefoot conditions while providing a small amount of protection. Expand
Effects of shoes and foot orthotics on VO2 and selected frontal plane knee kinematics.
TLDR
It appears that if orthotics do, in fact, improve running economy by improving running mechanics, the amount of improvement is negated by the additional cost of running associated with the mass of the orthotics. Expand
Aerobic requirements of overground versus treadmill running.
TLDR
It is found that the oxygen demand of level running is similar for both the treadmill (TM) and overground situations at speeds under 260 m X min-1, and that overground hill running is theoretically more costly than inclined treadmill running. Expand
Biomechanical analysis of the stance phase during barefoot and shod running.
TLDR
This study investigated spatio-temporal variables, ground reaction forces and sagittal and frontal plane kinematics during the stance phase of nine trained subjects running barefoot and shod at three different velocities to find sagittal kinematic adaptations between conditions. Expand
Tibiocalcaneal kinematics of barefoot versus shod running.
TLDR
It is concluded that calcaneal and tibial movement patterns do not differ substantially between barefoot and shod running, and that the effects of these interventions are subject specific. Expand
A 1% treadmill grade most accurately reflects the energetic cost of outdoor running.
TLDR
Equality of the energetic cost of treadmill and outdoor running is demonstrated with the use of a 1% treadmill grade over a duration of approximately 5 min and at velocities between 2.92 and 5.0 m s-1. Expand
Factors Affecting Running Economy in Trained Distance Runners
TLDR
There is a strong association between RE and distance running performance, with RE being a better predictor of performance than maximal oxygen uptake (V̇O2max) in elite runners who have a similar V̇ O2max. Expand
Physiological characteristics of the best Eritrean runners-exceptional running economy.
TLDR
The data suggest that the excellent running economy of Eritreans is associated, at least partly, with anthropometric variables and that superior running economy, rather than enhanced aerobic capacity, may be the common denominator in the success of black endurance runners of East African origin.
