Asics, what does pronation mean?
I run heel to toe. On the Asics website it has shoes for different levels of pronation, what am I?
Pronation is an eversion of the foot. That is, the foot turns outward at the ankle so that the inner part of the foot contacts the ground. Do not land heel first. Land more flat footed if you are running slow and easy. If you are running fast then you will land more on the front or balls of your feet. Some shoes are made to help control the movement of the foot so that you do not over pronate or supanate. The wear pattern of your shoe can be an indicator of how you run. Having someone watch you run from behind or in front at ground level can be helpful.
Well I should hope you don't run toe to heel! Can you say shin splints!
Pronation is like, when you run, does your foot tilt more to the outside or the inside. Try going to a specialty running store, and they can help you out.
Pronation means your foot rolls either inward or outward as you run. It is called over pronating if your foot rolls inward (which means their shoes most likely have more arch support to level that out) and under pronating if you run on the outside of your foot. It is hard to tell what you are without seeing you run. Pronation can be related to your arch type though. Stick your foot in water and then on a surface that will show the footprine (concrete, etc.). If you can't see your arch, you have high arches, and if you can see a lot of it, you have flat feet. Talk to your local running shoe specialist to help.
you can check that out if you want, but I'm just telling you what I know. www.ourfootdoctor.com/yourfeet...
Read this...it's mostly about shin splints but it explains under and over pronation towards the middle of the page and how to figure out your own pronation.
