To me, this is a very powerful demonstration of how our motor system, especially at a tender age, responds to underfoot cushioning. It reveals the negative competing effects of wearing thicker cushioned footwear during early and critical stages of human movement development: the child's trying to land stably, but finds difficulty in doing so as the thick, underfoot padding acts as a sensory barrier and mechanical interference that causes mobility impairments, a slowed reflexive-caution response that the body naturally employs when barefoot and may also slow and impair advances in functional mobility health as well.
