Re: Prevent supination

: Hello,
: I am a runner and have a high degree of supination in my feet, which wears my shoes quickly. I already use full shoe inserts, but I was wondering if there was a product and if not I wanted to make one out of another sole to place in my shoe. In order to prevent my knee from discomfort of pain from prior injury. If I want to make a small insert where would I place it in my shoe the inner or outer side maybe? Please help me alleviate my supination problem. Thank you for your time, Elizabeth

For supination you want to roll the foot/ankle inward. Posting to the heel and forefoot should go on the lateral (outside) edge of the orthotic. You want to raise up the outside edge or lower the inside edge. Perhaps if you have a good shoe repair shop they might be able to help with modifications to your insole. A certified pedorthist can also do this sort of modification to an over the counter orthotic for you.
