What is pronation?

- Pronation describes the way your foot rolls inward as your foot lands on the ground.

- Underpronation: your foot doesn’t roll inward enough and the ground impact is transferred up your lower leg

- Neutral pronation: your foot rolls inwards the ideal amount for an efficient and safe push off

- Overpronation: your foot rolls inwards too much and as you move forward all your body weight is on the inside of your foot

How will my ASICS shoes wear down? 

 Like any product used regularly, your shoes will wear down. How quickly depends on your body weight, foot type and mileage. They may wear down faster if you:

- run on the road at all times

- overpronate

We recommend changing your running shoes between 600 and 800 km.

How do I clean running shoes?
