Choosing supportive shoes
A person with overpronation should take extra care when selecting shoes, particularly when picking shoes for any activity that involves repeated foot strikes, such as running or walking.
Anyone with overpronation should look for shoes that offer extra support and stability so that the shoes minimize the impact of each step.
A person with overpronation looking for supportive shoes may want to do the following when selecting shoes:
- have both feet measured
- shop at the end of the day and end of the week when feet are a little puffy
- wear thin socks when shopping
- look for shoes that offer extra arch support
A running store that offers some form of walking-style analysis, a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon can recommend good shoes.
Anyone experiencing pain or repeated injury due to overpronation should see a doctor. A doctor can recommend many options for a person that can relieve pain and prevent re-injury.
