Reduction in Ground Reaction Forces with Barefoot Running

One of the more common arguments for barefoot running (or at least transitioning to minimalist shoes or just a forefoot/midfoot strike) is that it is easier to more lightly contact the ground and eliminate the magnitude of impacts associated with a heel strike. Now we have this study that looked at the magnitude of reduction in the ground reaction forces following a transition to barefoot running: Reduction in ground reaction force variables with instructed barefoot running Cynthia D.
