RE: [running-194] orthotics/flat feet/runner's knees help!

From: user 1.

I just read "Born to Run" and a "Nature" article detailing how barefoot running (if approached gradually) can cure a host of running injuries, and that too much support and stride correction can create injuries, so I agree with Austin.  Here's the "Nature" article:

Runners who wear the cheapest shoes get injured far less than those who spent lots of dough on orthotics and extra-fancy shoes.
