    I forgot about this abstract from the ACSM mtg in June on this study.

    Increasing Body Mass Increases The Incidence Of Injury In Runners Using Minimalist Shoes

    I even mentioned the study in this blog post and then forgot about it!

    Aloha,

    Good speech.

    So what if the injury was stepping on a sharp object while on a run and the patient weighed under 71Kg.

    Would we continue to have them use minimalist minimal protective shoe?

    Who titled this thread with maximalism?
    It appears that they were testing against the standard 22-12 EVA foam declined wedged shoes.

    Maximalist shoes must show testable and significant improvements in stability, energy efficiency, physical protections and greenablility. They are the inverse of minimalist shoes.

    Mahalo,
    Steve

    FEMA recommends only "sturdy boots" for our search and rescue teams when they enter a debris field. They should be recommending puncture resistant shoes set to a ASTM or SATRA standard.
