Actually a lot of ergonomic science goes into a pair of sneakers. Comfort and bouncy rubber stuff to reduce the amount of energy lost with each footstep. You can in fact walk or run farther on them before your feet get tired -- I should know, having walked the same distance over the same terrain in good running shoes and in boots on separate occasions (with the difference in footwear owing to weather).

Actually, the dirty secret of the atletic footwear industry is that athletes who use the most "advanced" shoes are more, not less prone to injury. Barefoot is actually best, and shoes that come the closest to barefoot are the safest.
