Jogging is a hybrid gait comprising some elements of walking and some of running.
There are still many that believe the heel-toe pattern is not how our ancestors used to walk, especially when barefoot. Walking (even barefoot and in sandals) is a heel-toe gait.
The evolutionary drive to minimise energy cost seems to have been ignored by modern proponents of forefoot walking. This piece will dispel the myth that humans are evolved to walk on the forefoot.
Effective and efficient energy transfer is nature’s first principle of design. It is evident in all biological systems and structures, as well as the behaviours they facilitate.
An undisputed law of biology is that form both follows and determines function which provides an adaptable and stable base of support. A functional foot should therefore have dynamic flexibility.
