A peer-reviewed article of this Preprint also exists.
It has been brought to our attention during the review process that the
following sentences in our introduction
"Kinetic analyses have shown that even on hard surfaces, barefoot runners who forefoot strike, generate smaller collision forces than shod rear-foot strikers. This differences result primarily from a more plantar flexed foot at landing and more ankle compliance during impact, decreasing the effective mass of the body that collides with the ground.'
(our spelling error) were not correctly quoted. These sentences are from the
opening paragraph of Vol 463|28 January 2010| doi:10.1038/nature08723
(“Foot strike patterns and collision forces in habitually barefoot versus shod runners” by Lieberman et al). We apologize for this error and have made the correction in the final version.
