One of the best strategies to avoid heel strike when running is to wear minimalist running shoes. This is because the flat, fully flexible and thin sole helps you feel the ground more clearly, while aligning the foot in a better postion of which taken together helps you mobilize a more targeted forefoot strike that generates less braking with no burst in high collisional impact.

More research confirms that thick cushioned running shoes are not a quick fix for injury because they consistently fail to absorb impact and reduce other physical stressors, regardless of foot strike type. So, if you land with a forefoot strike, which is the safest, lightest foot strike pattern in running, you will still generate greater-than-normal impacts in thickly cushioned running shoes as compared with thinner, more barefoot-inspired footwear.

It turns out, cushioned running shoes are bad for your ankles! A new study finds thick cushioned running shoes with a large heel flare increases the risk for ankle injury by increasing inappropriate ankle movements at touchdown and results in higher initial joint pronation. Even worse, these shoes also caused the highest touchdown velocity of the heel, the highest vertical impact force peaks and the highest maximum vertical loading rate as compared with minimalist shoes.

n seniors, minimalist shoes and being barefoot was found to do the most good in dramatically reducing injuries and falling as the flat sole and heightened sense of the ground was translated into more functional movement patterns that accounted for more stable landings, while strengthening the feet and ankles that accounted for big reductions in the risk of falling.
