Firstly, neutral pronation, sometimes universal pronation. This is the most common type of stride Look at the toe of the sole of your shoe.If the middle section is the most worn, your stride is referred to as neutral This indicates that your foot is perfectly aligned when you run Next, over pronation. This is also a very common type of stride If it’s the inner part of the sole at the toe which is the most worn , this corresponds with ‘over pronation’ This stride indicates that your foot rolls inward when you run Finally, supination If it’s the outside part at the toe that’s the most worn, this corresponds with ‘supination’ This stride indicates that your foot rolls outwards when you run Understanding your type of stride allows you to determine the kind of running shoes that are best adapted to your feet.
