Abstract

Feet morphological characteristics have been proven to be closely linked with ethnicities (Hoffmann, 1905). One unique difference between habitually unshod running feet and shod running feet is that the great toes of habitually unshod runners are quite separate from the other toes compared with habitually shod runners. It is aimed in this study to investigate the separate hallux's function of habitually unshod runners and shod runners while running under shod and unshod conditions.
