Hi, can anyone tell me how torsion affects a running shoe? (I can't do twisting a shoelace/the tongue)
Thanks.

Generally people don't step with their foot flat on the ground so there will always be torsion in the whole shoe/ the sole when you step.

Can you please elaborate on how the torsion affects the sole? I don't quite understand...Thanks anyway though.

On my running shoes, I have a torsion bar to correct my stride. They provide extra support in certain areas on the sole to do this. For example, my foot splays outwards, kind of like a duck, but with the torsion bar gives a lot of support on the outside of the shoe to bring my foot back into line.

I hope that makes sense. Most of all, I hope I got it right and that it is a torsion bar on my running shoes
