Use of gait sandals for measuring rearfoot and shank motion during running.


:Gait sandals may be used as an alternative to shoes in gait analysis. However, their similarity to running shoes remains unclear. This study aimed to compare rearfoot and shank kinematics between barefoot, running shoes and gait sandal conditions during running. We hypothesised that gait sandals would more closely replicate the kinematics seen when wearing running shoes than when barefoot. Rearfoot and shank kinematics were measured in 14 male participants as they ran in three footwear conditions (barefoot, gait sandals and running shoes) at 3.5m/s. Both barefoot and gait sandals resulted in greater peak rearfoot eversion compared to running shoes. Gait sandals were similar to running shoes for all other variables. These findings suggest that gait sandals can be used in place of running shoes during gait analysis to study rearfoot and shank kinematics.
