What is Pronation and Over Pronation (Flat Feet)?
Have you noticed someone in your family wear off the inner sole faster then the outer sole of their shoes.
This common syndrome is known as over pronation meaning the foot rolls inwards when it comes in impact with the surface while you walk or run. This syndrome is also called “Flat Feet“. Pronation is a part of human gait cycle where feet absorb the shock while walking or running.
Whether you have severe or mild over pronation, you may risk serious injury if you choose the wrong pair of shoes. First of all, you should steer clear of minimal and neutral sneakers as they don’t provide ample support or cushion for shock absorption, or to correct inward rolling. Running shoes should have proper support, stability, and motion control. Snippets.org provides you important information on sneakers so that you can make a decision which running shoes to buy.
