OK, so I was doing my usual thing of mindlessly looking for running related stuff on the internet when I came upon this video:
So when you first look at this chick on the treadmill, you think, "Oh yeah, she's one of those pronators. Looks kinda like Pete on the treadmill." And then you listen to all the blah blah from the the lady talking, and you're like "Umm, yeah, OK whatever..." But then, you get to about 4:20 or so and you're like "Dang! When she's barefoot and just walking, her feet and ankles look like a completely different person! What the heck is going on?" I'll tell you what the heck is going on...her dang shoes are changing her gait. And another thing that's going on...many so-called experts don't know what the hell they're talking about. You just gotta experiment with shoes (or no shoes maybe), listen to your body and figure out what works for you. And don't always trust the advice and blather you hear from "experts."
