    figure this one out ..
    "The hallux valgus angle of habitually barefoot children in this study showed higher values in all age groups."
    .... more hallux valgus in the barefoot groups ....

    The study claims a REDUCTION in the hallux angles in the habitual footwear users. Does that imply that the opposite is true? It is a very vague study.

    From the paper cited above -
    "Thus, barefoot children’s plantar arch likely develops better because their windlass mechanism works more frequently."

    My Understanding is that Salford University are very involved with this subject . Could I suggest that the initial windlass phase is more impeded by footwear than the second windlass phase ( that engaged in later stance ) and that this might be worth considering in footwear design for children .

    And yet this no evidence such a foot is 'healthier' now or in the future.... pseudoscience

    Hi Dieter ,
    I am not sure what you mean by " such a foot " . Could you elaborate ?
