Running Correctly, Healus

Everyone is trying to find the correct running style, Nike with it's Free, Newton Running and Zoot Sports with its new running shoe. Now all are good and limiting runners from slamming their heels into the ground thousands if not millions of time over a season is smart. Healus is throwing it's hat into the ring, this video does a good job at demonstrating why heel strike is bad and this shoe could be changing all that.

"Revolutionary running shoe

European 5000m record holder Dave Moorcroft tries out a radical new running shoe.

It's been developed by marathon runner and physiotherapist Adri Hartveld who has over 25 years experience in dealing with sports injuries.

He came up with the idea of the Healus Running Shoe - a design comprised of a base shock plate and heel-less sole which minimises heal strike impact - based on his own experiences and from the athletes he has helped treat.

Dave Moorcroft is surprised with the results when he takes the Healus onto the track!"
