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.
But before you decide to ditch your runners and just wear an ugly old non sports related shoe, the researchers point out that body mass index, a history of injury, and perceived exertion rate are what will snag you an injury. I'd recommend sticking with a running shoe nonetheless.
