    Pronation

    Post by FinishingKick on Sat Oct 25, 2008 7:09 pm

    When I run my foot lands almost on the outside edge, but then I guess it rolls in slightly. The outside of my shoes have the most wear, and I've always thought I under-pronated, but if my feet roll in after they land, do I really over pronate?

    yes, I thought the same thing but then the physical therapist lady watched me run/walk and told me all about that it. I do the same thing as you do, and yes its overpronating.

    If the wear is on the outside it's overpronating.

    do the lunch bag test
    get your foot wet and place it on a brown lunch bag
    you can tell if you over pronate, under pronate, or are normal by the way your foot print looks

    I thought that was for you arches?? ^

    If you go to a speciality running store they can tell you, or just look at the bottom of your shoe.

    FK, I use the same shoes as you (GTS Cool and I also under-pronate. It might be since the shoes have weight on the inside or the way they're built that they make your feet roll inward. But when your foot leaves the ground, do your toes kick out or stay straight?

    Ok so I figured out that I actually over-pronate. However, I still have a medium arch and I think that's why I don't like a lot of over-pronation shoes, because they're made for people with small arches. I think the Adrenalines are made for a more normal arch and that's why they're so great. Very Happy
