The Quiz

Do you have a:

    A. High arch
    B. Neutral arch
    C .Low arch

Do you need:

    A. Motion control shoes
    B. Stability shoes
    C. Neutral shoes

Foot prints

The answers to these two questions say a lot about your pronation IQ. If you’re a runner, you most likely know your foot type like the back of your hand. However, pronation doesn’t just exist on the track and trail. Everyone’s foot health is impacted by the way that their feet roll during movement.

The idea of pronation is often met with disdain, but it’s a necessary part of the body absorbing shock. Problems arise when the foot rolls too much (over-pronation) or not enough (supination). The right shoe gear can make all of the difference when it comes to the way your feet roll.

The Answers

Understanding the connection between your arch type and pronation will help you know which footwear is best suited for your feet. To find out if you have a high, neutral, or low arch, take a simple wet test. Dip your foot into water and step onto a brown paper bag. The silhouette will tell you all you need to know.

If your footprint reveals the ball of the foot and the heel with a thin line on the outside, you have a high arch, which will benefit from a neutral shoe that has sufficient cushioning.

A full print indicates a low arch. This type is indicative of someone who experiences excessive rolling in of the feet (over-pronation), and a motion control shoe is your best bet.

Finally, a neutral arch will be revealed by a picture perfect print (expect to see the heel, ball of the foot, and half of the arch). Shoe shopping will be easiest for you, with some in this category preferring a stability shoe.
