Why do my shoes wear on the outside heel?

Why do my shoes wear on the outside heel?

Some make contact with the ground with more pronounced inward pressure (pronation) on the foot. While others make contact with more pronounced outward pressure on the foot (supination). If your shoes are wearing out faster on the outside, your foot supinates too much when you walk.

What does wear on outside of running shoe mean?

If you have a wear pattern on the outer, lateral edge of your running shoe – you’re underpronating (also called supinating). Underpronating is rare, only observed in about 5% of the running population. Nonetheless, it can lead to stress-related bone and joint injuries in the lower extremities.

What is Overpronate?

Overpronation means that your foot rolls inward as you move. If you overpronate, the outer edge of your heel hits the ground first, and then your foot rolls inward onto the arch. Pronation refers to the flattening of your feet. So, if you overpronate, you overly flatten your feet.

Do I Supinate or pronate?

When your palm or forearm faces up, it’s supinated. When your palm or forearm faces down, it’s pronated. When supination and pronation refer to your feet, it’s a little more complicated. Both terms involve your gait and how your weight is distributed as you walk or run.

How do you treat supination?

To help treat excessive supination of the foot:

  1. Select lightweight shoes with extra cushioning and ample room in the toes.
  2. Wear running shoes specifically designed for underpronators or supinators.
  3. Wear orthotic insoles designed for underpronation.

What are the bottoms of your shoes telling you?

The bottom of your shoes can tell you a lot about how you’re running, and whether you’re in the right shoe. The problem is that it can take hundreds of miles before you know.

What is the inside of a shoe?

The insole is the inside part of the shoe that runs underneath and supports the bottom of the foot. Insoles are also referred to as footbeds and inner soles. They are usually easily removed.

What is a shoe wear pattern?

A shoe with a normal wear pattern indicates that you land on the outside of your heel with your weight moving quickly along the outer side of your foot (not causing much noticeable wear). As weight is transferred between the first and second metatarsal heads, you may see a wear spot just behind the first and second toes.
