3 General Foot Types
1. Normal Arches: usually correlating with normal pronation.
2. High Arch: usually correlating with a rigid foot that doesn’t pronate well. This foot type can tend to strike the ground with a “thud” when running.
3. Flat Arch: usually correlating with a loose foot that over-pronates. This foot-type can tend to “slap” the ground when running.
