Bilateral Foot Pronation
Seek a podiatrist: Pronation is another phrase for flexible feet. If you have a flattened foot structure, there isn't much you can do. You can't "stop" them from flattening out.

I have over-pronation & use orthotic. Told heel counter in shoe should hold foot snugly. Foot heel does ride up, how much too much?
Shoe counter: It may well be impossible to find an otc shoe that fits that well. If there is a lot of room move to a narrower shoe and remove the inner liner of the shoe as well to allow the orthotic to fit better. You may need some additions to the counter area of the shoe (inside) as well to promote fit. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
