Footwear Types


Everyone's feet are different and require different types of shoes that best suite them.

There are 3 general categories that shoes fall in:



What's the difference?


NEUTRAL

Neutral cushioning shoes are generally for people who do not exhibit severe symptoms of pronation (rolling inward of the ankles) or supination (rolling outward of the ankles). They typically do not have any special/specific features for extra support in the arch, heel, or ankles.

STABILITY

Stability cushioning shoes have special/specific features that aid in pronation (rolling inward of the ankles). They typically include a guidance mechanism to help support your ankles from rolling inward. However, they are not as rigid as motion control shoes.

MOTION
CONTROL

Motion control shoes are the most stable shoes made to counter severe over-pronation (rolling inward of the ankles) and supination (rolling outward of the ankles). They generally have firm support structures and guidance mechanisms. They also often have stiffer internal structures, shoe lasts, and posting.
