One of the main criticisms of conventional running shoes raised over the last few years has been that they encourage "hard" landings that increase the impact forces of running, especially on initial contact with the ground.Minimalist shoes, some advocates say, can help reduce impact forces, in part by encouraging a "softer" foot strike and more of a midfoot landing.
Best Update. Feather-light dancer. We've long liked the Flyknit Lunar, but fit issues always tempered our praise: The rigid ankle collar pushed into the Achilles, and the forefoot felt like a compression sock. Nike made amends, creating a lighter shoe with an even sweeter ride. Using their Flyknit technology, which knits ultralight, ultrastrong yarn into different textures, they retooled the collar with a tighter rear-foot mesh that holds the heel comfortably and securely, while a more flexible weave better accommodates the forefoot (some testers thought it was still a bit snug). Nike also reformulated the midsole, shifting cushioning from the heel to the forefoot, where it provides a more resilient platform for a quick toe-off.
