Pronation refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running or walking shoe and prevent injury.

Pronator types include:

PRONATED: The overpronator may have issues relations to the timing of muscle firing, and prolonged rotation of the leg to the foot.

NEUTRAL: A neutral runner has no or few biomechanical problems.

SUPINATED: A supinated runner maybe subject to increased shock transmission through the lower limb.
