    It would be interesting to compare a shoulder back pack with a hip bearing back pack to see if the forward leaning posture is part of the component of the foot adaptations.

    I interpret that to be that individuals with flat feet tend to compensate by flexing more at the hips to carry the weight further forward on the foot.

    "Effects of wearing backpacks on the foot" surely you should wear your backpack on your back, not on your foot?

    Pattern of Alteration in Foot Mechanics When Carrying Loads Unilaterally in Hand
    Harithasan D, Omar B, Paungmali A.
    The Internet Journal of Allied Health Sciences and Practice. 2017 Mar 23;15(2), Article 7
    PURPOSE: Carrying weight in one hand is a common functional activity. This study investigated the effects
    of incremental loads carried in one hand unilaterally and its influence on the foot mechanics [plantar pressure,
    maximum force and contact area].
    METHOD: Twenty healthy individuals were tested, in standing and
    walking, while carrying different weights (no load, 5 kg, 7.5 kg and 10 kg) using their right hand. ANCOVA
    was conducted separately for the right and left leg to address the effect of incremental loads on the foot
    mechanics within each leg with navicular drop index and Q angle as covariates. Paired t-test was conducted
    to address the effect of different loads on the foot mechanics between the legs.
    RESULTS: Results showed a
    significant increase in plantar pressure
    CONCLUSION: The fundamental changes in foot mechanics under
    the influence of different loads may be used to interpret the changesseen in the foot mechanics among different
    pathological condition.
