Who wins for you? Plantigrade, digitigrade or unguligrade?

Who wins for you? Plantigrade, digitigrade or unguligrade? Which one is the most effective for walking and running short and long distances? The best for endurance and strength?

    Clearly the best for long distances is the plantigrade
    If you want to go fast ungulate

    For me it's doing flipper push ups and undulating a massive fat body methodically and rapidly to get around. Truly the beach master way.

    i am a footcoomer and i've always wanted to see a fantasy race with feet that are kind of a mix of plantigrade and digitigrade.
    ideally with a more human-like overall shape, a sole, and maybe some minor fat stores in the pad to make them soft.

    as for the question, i don't think there is a most effective for those things. it relies on too many other factors in the body. paw seems most versatile though.

      there is lots of furry art in that style and I like. Humane plantigrade foot but with prominent pads and claws. Very sexy.

      Digitigrade. Humans even instinctively asume a digitigrade posture when sneaking, and the most successful runners (both marathon and sprinters) all have a running style where their heel never touches the ground, i.e. digitigrade.

      Furry art gets a few things wrong about digitigrade bipeds. A digitigrade humanoid would need much larger feet then a digitigrade quadruped in order to balance on two feet. Flightless birds are a good example of digitigrade bipeds, pic related, note how large their toes are.
      Also, the ankle would need to be more vertical, with less of a bend. Try standing on your toes with your heel off the ground and after a minute you'll understand why it's a bad idea. If the ankle is bent like in OP's pic then the thigh muscles are actively working to keep the heel off the ground, which will tire you out pretty fast.

      Human feet are best for supporting human hands' use of tools, among organisms of animal kingdom, I'd argue

    Plantigrade seems pretty good for long distances, even compared to ungulates. Humans routinely outrun horses in marathon+ distance races.

      no, humans almost never beat horses over long distances.

          yep. I never really understood the appeal of the idea in the first place. I've never met someone that can run down a zebra on foot. I know such people exist, but nobody here could do it. So it doesn't matter anyways.

            Because we've evolution passed the need for long distance running for the most part.

              even in the past most humans never had the need or the ability.

    digitigrade is the best for straight running.
    digitigrade is better for agility and quick direction change
    plantigrade is the best for stability and balance

    wut? all you gotta do is check for the fastest, longest running, highest leaping vertebrates and see they're pretty much all digitigrade carnivores preying on ungulates and flat footed critters.

      Orcas (ungulates) mog every other mammalian lifeform. Plust they don't have to run or walk.

        pretty good point. Ungulates rule the seas so long as we don't count plantigrades with harpoons and boats

      Plantigrade obviously.

      >hurrdurr prosthetic runners

      They can sprint for short distances in controlled environments, there's no versatility whatsoever. Human feet check the box of every skill for survival needed and anyone who disagrees is retarded.

      None of them are able to swim or climb efficiently as humans, or bears, wolverines or kangaroos for that matter.

      Flatter footed beings mog and are the top of their respective food chains everywhere on land.

        Dunno if I would count roos as quadrupeds.
