Factors that prevent the feet from being sensory-seeking.
The more you run barefoot, you will eventually get to a point where you become injury-free as compared to running in shoes. This is because….
Foot proprioception plays a critical role in the sensory processes important for regulating safer landing behaviors during running and walking.
