El calzado minimalista es una buena alternativa para algunos corredores, pero no para todos

By Emily Hiatt

ESTIMADA MAYO CLINIC:
¿Es peligroso correr con zapatillas minimalistas? Me parece que no puedo encontrar otro calzado bueno para mí, pero me preocupa sufrir daños duraderos en los pies por usarlas.

una persona camina descalza por la playaRESPUESTA:
El calzado minimalista, también conocido como zapatos que dan la impresión de estar descalzo, puede ser una buena alternativa para algunos corredores, pero no para todos. Si uno tuvo problemas o sufrió lesiones anteriores en los pies, hay que poner especial cuidado con ese tipo de calzado. Vale la pena hablar con el médico de cabecera o con un especialista en medicina del deporte antes de empezar a usar calzado minimalista, a fin de decidir si es bueno para uno.

El calzado minimalista se ha vuelto más popular en el último tiempo como resultado del creciente entusiasmo por correr descalzo. Estas zapatillas permiten tener más contacto con el piso, son más ligeras y tienen menos amortiguación que los zapatos de correr tradicionales. Por su diseño, ofrecen parte de los aspectos deseables de correr descalzo, brindando algo de protección a los pies.
