As with the "normal pronation" sequence, the outside of the heel makes the initial
ground contact. However, the foot rolls inward more than the ideal fifteen percent,
which is called "overpronation." This means the foot and ankle have problems stabilizing
the body, and shock isn't absorbed as efficiently. At the end of the gait cycle,
the front of the foot pushes off the ground using mainly the big toe and second toe,
which then must do all the work.

Overpronator / Flat Foot
Leaves a footprint of the whole of the foot. This is because the arch collapses through
the foot motion. The foot strikes at the heel and rolls inwards excessively - this
is overpronation. Great overpronation shoes include the Brooks Beast, Saucony Stabil
and the Mizuno renegade.
