About Stability Shoes
It’s very easy for you to get an idea of what shoe type would suit your foot shape by doing the wet foot print test. You will need a bowl of water, a darkish piece of paper (I find a large brown envelope works well) and you. Place one foot in to the bowl, shaking off any excess water as you lift it out. Press your foot onto the paper (try doing this as if you were walking on to it). Your foot will leave a print which you can then match to our guide below.
Mild Pronation If your foot shape matchesthe print belowit would suggest you have moderate pronation. Moderate pronation simply means your arch will collapse through the gait cycle and the foot will roll inwards.
Majority of people experience pronation so don’t worry as it’s normal. You would be best suited to a ‘Mild Pronation’ shoe which will support the foot through the gait cycle.
Moderate to Severe Pronation If your foot shape matchesthe print belowit would suggest you have severe pronation and a flat arch. Severe pronation simply means your arch will collapse considerably through the gait cycle and the foot will roll inwards. You would be best suited to a ‘Moderate to Severe Pronation’ shoe which will support and help control the foot through the gait cycle.
These type of shoes normally have built in support on the inside of the shoe and tend to have wide soles for additional stability particularly suited to heavier runners who need more support and cushioning.
In 1898, four young businessmen opened the Saucony Shoe Manufacturing Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. By 1910, they were turning out 800 pairs of shoes a day from their two-story brick factory on the Saucony Creek. Throughout the early and mid-1900's, running became the focus of serious athletes and at that time, there weren't any high-performance running shoes.
Saucony were determined to make a shoe that could change the way people run. In 1969, Saucony found a new home in Cambridge, Mass and have been loyal Bostonians ever since.
Saucony quickly went from the serious runner's best kept secret to the most sought-after runing shoe of the time.
Saucony exists for runners as runners inspire them and bring them new ideas. They drive the design and engineering while keeping them competitive. This focus and passion fuels Saucony as they strive to create the best running shoes and apparel on the planet.
At Saucony and Green Kiwi , a good day is when we get to run. A great day is when we inspire someone else to run!
