In this video, you'll learn how to determine what kind of stride you have

This is essential information for choosing your running shoes and for avoiding injury

To be able to understand your kind of stride, you'll need to analyse a pair of well-worn shoes, either trainers or everyday shoes.

By examining the wear on the soles at the ball of the foot, we're going to distinguish three types of stride: neutral pronation, over pronation and supination.

Firstly, neutral pronation, sometimes universal pronation. This is the most common type of stride

Look at the toe of the sole of your shoe.If the middle section is the most worn, your stride is referred to as neutral

This indicates that your foot is perfectly aligned when you run

Next, over pronation. This is also a very common type of stride

If it's the inner part of the sole at the toe which is the most worn , this corresponds with 'over pronation'

This stride indicates that your foot rolls inward when you run

Finally, supination

If it's the outside part at the toe that's the most worn, this corresponds with 'supination'

This stride indicates that your foot rolls outwards when you run

Understanding your type of stride allows you to determine the kind of running shoes that are best adapted to your feet. Over to you!
