Take a look at your old shoes: Many experts will ask to see your old pair of trainers, as their wear pattern gives an indication of the way you pronate. Of course, other factors than pronation, such as weight, also play a role in choosing the best shoe.
The shoes of an overpronator will show extra wear on the inside of the heel and under the ball of the foot, especially the big toe.
Slight over pronators should consider choosing stability running shoes whilst sever over pronatiors may wish to consider Motion Control shoes or suitable orthotics. As the name suggests stability shoes provide ample stability and a degree of cushioning, whereas motion control shoes are the most stable shoes you can get. Running shoes in both of these categories will help your feet distribute the impact of running more effectively.
