layton Posted January 28, 2007 Author Share Posted January 28, 2007 you can tape your toe in the meanwhile...google turf toe and taping. As for hard vs. soft in arch height. Here's the logic. Over-pronators tend to roll their foot in too much, causing a decrease in arch height. Pronation is a loose packed position in the foot, creating shock absorption. Supination is the closed packed position, creating a rigid lever for stability and propulsion. Under-pronators=Too rigid=soft curved slip lasted shoe. Over-pronators=too floppy=board lasted stiffer shoe. The arch is meant to act as a support for your body to use, much like cars on a bridge. There are plenty of normal and abnormal variations in arch height that have nothing to do with how much you do or do not pronate. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
