Despite advancements in shoe technology, a new study is suggesting that whatever new fancy schmancy stuff they add in it won't help you avoid the risk of injury. That's sort of a given, right?
Published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, it posited that runners wearing hard-midsole shoes would be at a higher risk of running related injuries than those wearing cloud-soft sneakers.
They monitored 247 runners wearing trainers from a "renowned brand", with varying midsole stiffness. After five months of observation, they found that it didn't make a difference. There wasn't any evidence to suggest that softer shoes helped heavier runners.
