    Footwear: How the Past Affects Patients Today

    Author: Kevin B. Rosenbloom, C.Ped, Sports Biomechanist

    Modern shoes are altering the natural morphology and biomechanics of the foot (D’AoÛt et al. 2009). As a result, healthcare professionals often answer patients’ questions regarding modern shoe recommendations.

    From the footwear of grass and domesticated animal hides of the past, to the modern shoes of foam, synthetic leathers and rubbers of today, footwear has certainly evolved. A brief look into the history of footwear will not only reveal how modern shoes are changing foot behavior but provide more enticing facts about shoes to share with patients.
