Asics Womens Gel-Cumulus 15 SS14 White/Snow/Lavender Buyers Guide
What is Pronation?
If you’re a runner or you know a runner, then you've no doubt heard words like 'pronation', 'underpronation' and 'overpronation'. They describe your type of foot strike – the way your foot lands as you run.
As your foot makes contact with the ground, the outside part of the heel lands first. As the rest of your foot comes down, it’s the outside that continues the movement as it also "rolls" inwards to come into complete contact with the ground. This distributes the force of the impact, transferring as much energy as possible into the forefoot for the push-off phase of your gait.
Issues arise if this process occurs too much which is ‘overpronation’, or too little which is called ‘underpronation’ (also sometimes called supination). This puts the joints, muscles and connective tissues under excessive pressure.
In a runner who ‘overpronates’, the foot rolls inwards too much. Force transfer and shock absorption are less efficient in these cases, and extra pressure is placed on the medial structure of the leg as it collapses inwards.
In a runner who ‘underpronates’, the stride sequence starts with the outside of the heel making contact with the ground, but the inward roll of the foot doesn’t happen efficiently. All the force of the runner’s gait remains concentrated along the outside edge of the foot and pressure is exerted down the lateral structure of the leg.
In a ‘neutral’ runner, the running stride is within ideal boundaries.
