Looking at your bare feet tells us a lot about not only your feet but also your foot motion. There tends to be a correlation between arch height and foot motion. Generally, the higher the arch the less the foot pronates. How does this relate to your shoes? If you have a high arch you are more likely to need a neutral shoe. A flat foot means you’re more likely to need a stability or motion control shoe.
We’ll observe your feet when walking or running to help determine the degree of pronation or supination after heel strike.
- Mild to Moderate Pronation: Requires neutral to moderate support shoes.
- Over-Pronation: Requires stability or motion control shoes.
- Supination: Requires curve-lasted shoes.
* Over-Pronation is the excessive inward rolling of the foot after heel strike. Supination is the inward roll of the foot after heel strike.
