One of the greatest studies in the world.
For many years, the police through the world
studies the cushioning of the shoe without knowing if a connection is really available between the mechanical and cushioning mechanism of the shoe's mechanical cushioning.
In 2018, Decathlon has decided to make a test study featuring
848 participants over 27,761 running sessions, in partnership
with the LIH (see (see. Luxembourg Institute of Health).
What is the purpose of?
To confirm the link between cushioning and injuries in this study, two cushioning conditions have been tested: A flexible shoe (61 N/mm) against a stiff shoe (95 N/mm). The result of this study speaks for itself: 25% fewer runners injured with the flexible shoe. It is on the basis of this study that the flexible cushioning of the FLOW series was created, focusing on the preference index of soft cushioning.
WHAT IS THE DROP OF A 500K.1 RUNNING SHOE?
'Drop' is the difference between the height of the back (heel) and front (forefoot) of the shoe. Unlike the drop of 10 millimetres, the KALENJI running brand has decided to offer a drop of 4 mm to its Jogflow 500.1 The goal? Invite the runner to attack the floor using the forefoot to help them adopt a more natural stride and reduce the risk of injury.
