Food for thought on friday: Some running shoes from the 1970s.

Running shoes of Ron Hill who won the Boston Marathon in 1970. Note that these shoes are more minimal than most minimal shoes of today. Also note the wear pattern on the shoes indicating a forefoot strike pattern. Hill won the 74th Boston Marathon in 1970 with a course record 2:10:30. He also won gold medals for the marathon at the European Championships in 1969 and the Commonwealth Games in 1970.  Looks like the shoes didn’t make a difference huh??? 😉
