3 General Foot Types


1.        Normal Arches: usually correlating with normal pronation.

2.        High Arch: usually correlating with a rigid foot that doesn’t pronate well.  This foot type can tend to strike the ground with a “thud” when running.

3.         Flat Arch: usually correlating with a loose foot that over-pronates.  This foot-type can tend to “slap” the ground when running.
