RE: About John Robinson
prior to my first full cycle of Hill Springing, I was a heel striker. I would wear out the heels of shoes before the forefoot midsole lost any of its ability to protect that part of my foot. As a result of hill springing and the accompanying strength, I am now a forefoot striker. I can count on 500 to 600 miles on even racing shoes. I never had my foot plant evaluated before hill springing, but I think that had a lot to do with my "perfect" foot strike. I am guessing that if ALL runners did Hill Springing, they to would develop the strength necessary to support a more efficient and "correct" foot plant.
So to me that is why Arthur thought that no one has a foot plant problem. Because all of the runners who he "knew" (worked with) did his hill routines and therefore had efficient foot plants. At least in my opinion.
I like the Frees. I have had the opportunity to see/test a future generation. I think Nike has it right this time.
