How to replace a worn running belt
NEW YORK — The new running belt that sprays water to help your feet dry and prevent the buildup of perspiration is being tested in the U.S.
A study published in the British Medical Journal on Tuesday said that in two trials in Britain, a second pair of running belts was found to have better results than the first.
The study is the first to test a new running style in a clinical setting.
The new research comes as U.K. runners have been complaining about the lack of support from their new running gear, with some claiming that the new version of their running shoes is too big for them.
The British researchers said that the study did not measure how much support the new running belts provide to the feet, but did measure how effective they are in reducing perspiration.
“We believe that the results are significant and that the more support you give your feet, the less perspiration you’re going to have,” said Dr. Daniel Peltier, an associate professor at the Royal Free Hospital and senior author of the study.
Some runners say that the two new running styles, the Mukluk and the Muklaka, don’t have enough support to keep their feet dry.
The Mukluks have a higher support and weight of the foot, while the Muklsas are designed for running at a slower pace.
More than 2 million runners have tested the new style in England, with more than 60 percent saying it was worth the investment, according to the study, which is being published in BMJ.
