Their significance as stress markers, however, has been questioned since they can form while the individuals are healthy, and during periods of accelerated growth.

Preliminary abstract: Human walking is a pervasive aspect of our daily life. The evolution of bipedal walking in the hominin lineage resulted in millions of impacts being applied to the human heel every year. Impact forces differ from other habitual forces that humans experience both in magnitude and rate, and natural selection likely acted strongly on the human skeleton to resist these extreme forces.
