    What kind of feet do you guys have and do you pronate or supinate? Also what shoes do you wear?

    I have flat feet but underpronate. I use the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8, great shoe.

    flat to normal arch, but I think my arches collapse?? does that make sense?? hah

    and I overpronate alot, use asics 2130's.

    I think I need a shoe with more arch support though, I usually tape them but its annoying.

    Cheruiyot won the the most recent Boston Marathon in a pair of those.

    As for me, low arches/overpronation. I wear adrenalines but I'm thinking about trying
    the new Asics Foundation, which is a motion control shoe...I just don't want too much
    bulk on my feet.

    Adrenalines are designed for moderate to severe overpronators. They're more stable
    than something like the Asics 2130 but less stable than a motion control shoe.

    runningwarehouse.com describes them like this:

    The Adrenaline GTS 8 is a true "go to shoe". Offering a great blend of
    cushioning, terrific support and proven fit, this shoe is ideal for
    medium to low arched feet. If you have moderate to near severe
    over-pronation, the Adrenaline GTS 8 belongs in your closet. Better
    yet, it belongs on your feet.

    High arch, right foot overpronates pretty moderately. Asics Kayano whatever the hell number they're on right now. They're pretty bulky.

    They've got weight on the inside, that means they're designed for underpronaters.

    They're definitely stability shoes....if you like the fit but don't need the stability features, you might
    want to try the Defyance which is the same shoe but minus the features which correct over-pronation

    Yeah, i definitely wear Adrenalines as well, but i overpronate and have relatively flat feet. If those are the wrong shoes, then the running store i went to was wrong, but they seem to work well for me and I've had them for 3 months now. Granted i have orthotics if that makes a difference haha..
