Minimalist? Maximalist? Zero drop? Is there really one running shoe paradigm to rule them all? On this week’s episode, Dr. Chris Napier PhD (T: @runnerphysio) and Paul Blazey (T: @Blazey85) joins BJSM’s Daniel Friedman (T:@ddfriedman) to debate running shoe prescription. Chris is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of British Columbia, where he recently obtained his his PhD (“Running biomechanics and injury prevention”) in 2018. Since becoming a physio, Chris has specialised his training with postgraduate studies in manual therapy and sport physiotherapy. He is currently a physiotherapist of Athletics Canada. Chris competed at the national level as a successful middle-distance runner and today is an avid skier, kayaker, and marathoner. A self-proclaimed encyclopaedia of running shoes, Paul is a physio who has spent time working with Crystal Palace and Arsenal FC, with a keen interest in managing running and triathlon injuries. He left his physiotherapy clinic in England behind in 2017 to take up research at the University of British Columbia and currently works as a senior associate editor for BJSM. Like Chris, Paul is an accomplished runner with envious marathon times.
