According to a recent study, approximately 70% of the population has feet that are abnormal in some way. Of that percentage, 95% of people suffer from overpronation.
A normal foot rolls out and then in when you walk, absorbing the shock of striking the ground. But an overpronating foot rolls in too much. This can cause heel spurs, bunions, hip and lower back pain, and even shin splints.
If you suffer from an overprinting foot, you know that having the right walking sneakers for overpronation is a must. Let's take a look at some of the best ones on the market.
Apex Lace Walkers
Apex Lace Walkers offer both comfort and flexibility. They are made to prevent injuries for people with moderate to excessive overpronation. They provide midfoot and rearfoot stability and shock attenuation.
Apex Strap Walkers
Instead of laces, Apex Strap Walkers use an adjustable hook-and-loop strap, allowing you to slip them on and tighten them quickly. They feature a carboplast footbridge, providing motion control and stability. They are to keep your foot in a neutral position while remaining comfortable.
In addition, these shoes are wide enough to accommodate orthotics and shoe modifications. They are also slip-resistant, with a rubber sole.
Apex Sierra Trail Runner
The Trail Runners have a firm heel counter, providing optimal rear-foot control. They're also made with a multi-density midsole for torsional rigidity. They're made of breathable mesh and a moisture-wicking polyester to keep your feet sweat-free.
