What causes a foot to PRONATE?

Flat feet

A foot with a very low or non-existent arch will overpronate. Maybe your flat feet are due to an underdeveloped arch from childhood or maybe your arch collapsed over the years as you aged.

Overuse

Yes, being too active can put a strain on the arch, muscles, tendons and ligaments in the foot.

Genes

You could be one of the unlucky ones and just happen to be born with a foot with an arch that doesn’t fully develop and a foot that overpronates. You can also be born with a hypermobile foot which causes loose joints and overpronation.

Bad shoes

Shoes that are designed mostly for fashion tend to be lacking in support, cushioning and features that promote good foot mechanics. High heels, narrow, flimsy, and thin sole shoes without an orthotic insole or supportive footbed will damage the plantar fascia over time leading to many other injuries and problems.

PRONATION
PRONATION WITH ORTHOTIC INSOLE

“I’m recovering from a pretty severe case of posterior tibial tendinitis…I was beginning to feel like I’d be wearing supportive full coverage walking shoes forever to avoid surgery. But the arch & pronation control in these sandals are keeping my foot in its proper position. I’m not in pain & I’m wearing sandals again! ”

How Shoes Help Relieve Pronation of Foot

 

Foot pronation is relatively simple to treat thanks to brands like Orthofeet who design shoes for pronated feet. What makes them special are the following features:

Premier orthotic insole

An insole with arch support is already built in the shoes so no need to insert a custom or over the counter one. The arch supports the plantar fascia, propping up the arch and rotates the foot to the correct position. This keeps the feet, legs, knees, hips and lower back aligned and pain free.

Cupped heel

A deep heel seat cups the rearfoot, reducing pressure under the heel and keeping it in place.

Firm heel counter

The best shoes for pronation are ones that control motion. A solid heel counter with wide sole increases stability and helps control overpronation.

Sole design

A rocker bottom sole that is lightweight and provides cushioning is great to reduce impacts and improve the ease of walking.

Cushioning

Multiple layers of foam form the basis for shock absorption from heel toe. Less stress is transferred to the tissues, tendons and ligaments.

Firm midsole

Pronation shoes are built with extra firm materials on the inside of the shoes, further providing motion control.

 

Orthofeet’s collection of pronation shoes features sneakers for pronation, causal pronation shoes, sandals for overpronation and many other styles for any activity and occasion.
