Correct. But still positioning your foot for a ball of the foot strike will not effect a rigid shoe, but it will support the foot itself as the point, "tip of the shoe" delivers a, as Bill mentioned.......(the ball of the foot is a penetrating kick, and it recoils instantly)You are neglecting the fact that the instep is hard, ball of the foot is soft...
Hardness of the tool affects penetration.
Ball of the foot is obviously harder with shoe surface though.
