If the soles of your shoes wear out the most from the outer sides, then you are a supinator, Just like the 10% population of the world. This happens because most of the weight is on the outer part of your feet while walking or running. Supination might run in the families as it is an inherited problem with structure of the feet. Excessive Supination also known as underpronation, if not corrected through proper shoes, can lead to numerous problems like plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs, sprained ankles, stress fractures, and tendonitis. Moreover, it provides great discomfort of shin splints, hips and lower back pain because a supinated foot is less shock absorbent.
