Is it good to run barefoot on a treadmill?

Update:24 Jun 2022

Although some researchers believe that barefoot running is healthier, for example, barefoot runners often land on the forefoot and then lower the heel, while those who wear shoes are used to landing on the heel, because there is a heel protection of the shoe. Even on hard surfaces, barefoot runners still have less impact on the ground, and therefore less impact on their feet than those who land on their heels. Running barefoot is also more elastic and uses the muscles of the calf and foot more effectively.

But more folding treadmill scientists believe that a pair of running shoes with good cache effect can effectively reduce running joint damage. Especially in the passive running mode on the treadmill, the vibration of the treadmill will cause unnecessary damage to the knees, ankles and other joints, and the soles of the feet are sweaty and easy to slip. Running barefoot can also cause the soles of the feet to wear down and cause blisters.

Running on the treadmill requires not only shoes, but also professional running shoes! The existence of shoes can help you buffer the impulse during running and protect your knees!
