'The Running Shoe Book' is an out-of-print classic vintage paperback that delves into the science and history of running, including the mechanics of movement and the factors to consider when selecting and fitting running shoes. 'The Running Shoe Book' was written by Peter R Cavanagh and originally released on January 1, 1980. This book is in very good vintage condition with minimal wear on the covers. We kinda love the Dharma Initiative vibes on the back cover. More info below:


The complete story of the running shoe its history and evolution, how it is manufactured and tested, how it can help prevent injuries, and a ten-point plan to help you choose the shoe that's right for you.

"Peter Cavanagh has taken kinesiology out of its ivory tower and put it to practical use. This literate, exhaustive study of the interaction of the runner, the shoe, and the road comes at a time when it is most needed. The shoe is the interface between the runner and the cosmos. It is the link between a runner's inner and outer world. The shoe is responsible, in large part, for the harmony or discord which results. Cavanagh brings to this discussion an unrivaled experience, a searching mind, plus a clarity and felicity of writing style that is quite rare in the scientific community. You may have viewed your running shoes with indifference but I guarantee Cavanagh's own enthusiasm for this subject will kindle yours. Once this book is opened the time passes as quickly and enjoyably as a run with an interesting and delightful friend."
-George Sheehan, M.D.
