Barefoot Running Biomechanics- Harvard University

This Harvard University team, of 4, put together this very simple, yet thorough explanation of barefoot running biomechanics comparing the barefoot runner to the runner with sneakers. Descriptive and graphic explanations illustrate the foot and lower limb biomechanics when running in shoes, barefoot and in minimal shoes; and contrasts the biomechanics of the forefoot to heel strike. Tools are included to help assess benefits of learning to forefoot strike and transitioning tips.  Vibram linked to this case study on their site, and we are so happy they did!
