"I assumed the people who were giving me advice—running shoe people and doctors—knew what they were talking about. I can pin the tail on the villain and say they absorbed the party line of the sports shoe manufacturers who came up with the logical scenario that impact shock hurts. The disturbing thing is there's no evidence it's true.
We're being fleeced. It's a pure marketing and product thing. Modern running shoes let people run with their foot in front of their hips, picking up two feet of stride. You can't do that with the naked foot—it hurts. One of the mysteries out there is that if any shoe in existence really helped prevent injuries, you'd see that in an ad. But you don't. Over and over again, you're told you must go to a specialty running store. They'll say if you're doing something wrong, you need to buy something to fix it.

different ways. Mothers researched nursing and
associated parenting in the prenatal stage. They read
material, took classes, learned about nursing in their
academic lives, and for some, the knowledge about
nursing stemmed from their professional background.
However, the most efficient and valued means of
learning stemmed from the pregnant mothers’
relationships with nursing women. One reason that
interactions with other mothers were most efficient was
that mothers-to-be were able to learn tangible
information and insights about nursing beyond infancy.
Information through interaction helped mothers make
plans for the future initiation and duration of nursing."
