The research shared below supports the beliefs that are expressed in the Shoespiracy documentary that modern footwear developed over the last 50 or so years is ruining our feet, and our overall health. Our feet are biomechanical masterpieces, millions of years in the making, it seems a shame not to use them. When left to their own devices, they can cope with everything from walking and running to jumping and dancing. But by cramming them into a modern shoe, you negate their natural function. A thick sole restricts flexibility. A narrow toe box compromises natural movement. A shoe heel & cushioning robs you of your natural spring. There’s no shortage of evidence that your feet can cope pretty well without unnecessary padding, support or orthotics and that foot pain is attributable to modern footwear. You can read the studies, research, opinions of experts and journalists below.
