Chapter 6 – Pronate Nation

Chapter 6 of Tread Lightly examines the modern running shoe fitting process and the science (or lack thereof) behind assigning shoes based on pronation control and/or arch height . In this chapter we examine:

  • How the shoe fitting process works in a typical shoe store
  • Why pronation should not be feared
  • The effectiveness of pronation control devices in shoes
  • Why static arch height might be a useless criterion upon which to base shoe choice
  • Better approaches to shoe fitting
  • Why the old model of shoe fitting may be disappearing

Useful ancillary resources for Chapter 6 include:
