Other benefits of using a rocker shoe are useful for everyday footwear. The rocker bottom is completely rigid in the front, great for running, walking, hiking, biking or any type of sport. He's also great as a coach.
It also reduces the pressure under the sole of the foot and takes the pressure off the heel exerting that pressure forward to cause less pain. Rocking shoes are also useful for diabetics who need to redistribute their plantar strength as they walk.
Barbell shoes are known to reduce maximum plantar strength in the medial area of the forefoot, metatarsal and toes compared to the flatter shoe, thereby reducing the risk of foot ulcers.
