Err, yes... That seems like an idea. Definitely an idea.

But then so is duct taping a pebble in the heel of your shoe...
Not sure either is any better than the other :-P

Or of course, you could just try running barefoot. Free feedback for heel striking straight away.... But it's hard to sell that as a product or monetise it ;-)

Nice quote from article "This is even though the jury is still out on exactly what the best running style is"

Ok maybe sort that first... (which is a whole million page thread in its own right).

Indeed, as iirc there is a rather large thread on running economy that encompasses gait in all its forms on here :-)

But it's a _product_ so if they are going to sell it, it must be worth something right? Else why put it up for sale ;-)

Got something to say?
