Hi all. I am in need of a new pair of shoes. Finding a good pair of shoes has always been difficult because of how my lower body is structured. I am knock-kneed (has gotten much better since I lost weight) and my feet tend to roll outwards (I don’t remember the technical term, I always get them confused). What’s interesting though, is that my feet are definitely flat.
I have looked online and it would seem that I am a classic pronator. The thing is, however, all my shoes end up bulging outwards. When you look at the soles of my feet, they are always much more worn down to the outside than to the inside. I currently wear orthotics, but they are more than five years old and are probably completely useless. My knees tend to pop when I squat (tracking problems in the knee).
I am thinking about trying out the Nike Frees (without the orthotics) because I have heard great things about them. I plan on using these shoes for athletic activities as oppose to just lifting, so lifting shoes are out of the question. Does anyone have any good suggestions? Also, if you need more info let me know.
