    lol ... yeah right! who can spot the misinformation (and outright lies!) in this press release? Rather than be part of the solution, they are part of the problem!

    Now this press release has somehow morphed into barefoot runners getting less injuries rather than what the research was actually about! ... don't figure
    Northumbria University Research Suggests Running Barefoot Can Reduce The Risk Of Injury ... why do they keep making this stuff up for?

    Here is an article written in The New York Times with references to this paper. Haven't got through all the comments from the zealots yet, but I bet they come out swinging

    They are doing my head in-
    This is perhaps that worst thing about the internet... there are so many people that are suddenly 'experts'...

    I have an issue with the actual research also - they tested barefoot, shoes, barefoot on treadmill covered with 10mm EVA; and barefoot on treadmill covered with 20mm EVA. They did not test shoes on treadmill with either thickness EVA.
    In my humble opinion what this "only" suggests is that for barefoot running the optimum surface to run on is equivalent to their specific treadmill + 10mm EVA.

    As you say Craig, more cheey picking and no actual facts.
