SHOE WEAR CAN INDICATE YOUR FOOT TYPE

Olga Shvets, DPM, a podiatrist in Mamaroneck, NY, recommends looking at your current sneaker for clues as to the right fitting shoe. She says that looking at the soles of a well-worn pair of sneakers to see where the sole is worn out will suggest where you are making most of your impact. “Knowing your foot type is important,” she says.

“You can be a pronator, supinator, or neutral. You can identify your pronation by paying attention to which part of your foot hits the ground first. If you find that you have flat feet, you are likely a pronator and the opposite can be said for high arched feet and supination,”  says Dr. Shvets. A neutral foot type tends to wear most evenly in the back of their heel.
