Abstract or description

Background: Barefoot Science™ insoles (BSI) are marketed as “reforming gait and reducing injuries”. The manufacturers claim that a graded metatarsal dome is novel and it is said to promote intrinsic foot muscle activity, improve balance and alter the shape of the arch. However, as such there is no evidence to support such claims.
