The Bendy Knee Test
1. Remove your footwear and place your feet shoulder width apart
2. Bend your knees into a shallow squat
3. Observe the position of your knees
Your foot type is:
Overpronation (flat foot)
This foot type is flat without any arch. When running the heel lands first but the foot lands more squarely and rolls inwards, which is known as 'over pronation'. Overpronantion feet require support and therefore require a stability shoe.
Underpronation (High Arch)
This foot type has little or no join between the forefoot and heel. This foot is rigid & is not an effective shock absorber and so requires a trainer with support.
If you have neither a low or high arch, then you have a neutral foot. The neutral foot is the easiest to fit! As a normal pronator you can wear just about any footwear, but may be best suited to stability footwear that provides moderate support. Runners who prefer lightweight footwear might prefer cushioned footwear with no added support for a faster feel!
Strong performance needs the right gear. So, on your mark, set and shop our head-to-toe guide.
Run faster in a ultra lightweight, shower resistant jacket with 360 reflectivity for total visibility in low light. Moisture wicking fabric will ensure you stay cool and dry.
Running tops must give freedom of movement so choose sweat-wicking, high stretch fabrics with flat locked seams that allow you to move without fear of chafing. Mesh back and underarm panelling ensures enhanced breathability where you need is most.
Technical run tights with sweat wicking, quick drying and high stretch properties allow you to run faster longer. Flatlocked seams prevent chafing and mesh panelling removes excess heat.
Running footwear with the appropriate amount of support and cushioning for your specific foot type are essential. Check out our footwear guide.
