Many people who are runners or walkers have some sort of foot pain at some point in their lives.
Did you know that 85% of these people are actually wearing the wrong shoes, which can lead to increased food, heel and joint paint ,especially if you already have higher arches or underpronation.
Undepronation is a condition where the foot rolls outwards when running, and it can be quite painful by itself, let alone with the incorrect shoe support.
Furthermore, did you know that this condition can actually be correct with the proper foot support?
All the more reason to invest in the right pair of shoes to prevent and correct underpronation if you already have it.
Common signs include: Shin splints, Achilles pain, heel pain, outer knee pain, swelling in the ankle or foot, ankle sprains, and blisters.
