    Here is a video in nike frees and BF. Do in need shoes to correct my overpronating or can I stay bf. I am very prone to shin splints mostly on the right side. Any feedback would be great. I can make another video to slow it down also.

    I'm not a doc but I don't see anything I'd call overpronation in that video. Pronation, yes, but nothing that would need correcting. Also, in my opinion a stable shoe would be the wrong way to go if there was something to correct, the only way to correct pronation that actually works is find out the cause and then work on strengthening that area.

    I also noticed it looked like you may be pushing off some (could be just because of the treadmill though). I can always tell when I've been pushing off myself because I get shin splints every time when I do.

    Blind boy, though blind, is correct. I don't see overpronation. But Nike Free Plus are not good shoes for proprioception. I use them in patients simply to get them out of their standard shoes and on their way to a more minimalist shoes. The 3.0 is better, but not great. Add those shoes in with your bouncy treadmill that tells your brain you're staying still while a road moves under you (rather than you over the road) and there's lots of body confusion.

    That's exactly how it feels to me, and perhaps a good reason why lots of these running studies can't be exact and reliable.

    BTW, what's with the roll of toilet paper on the floor next to the treadmill? o_O Is that for the "runner's runs?"

    What Is Foot Pronation and Supination? Is it Good Or Bad? How can we strengthen our feet to avoid over supination or over pronation?

    This is a commonly misunderstood concept and subject to debate by professionals. Dr Stoxen has lectured around the world on how the body absorbs impacts for years.

    This is his best explanation of how it works and some articles that he has written.

    When you impact the ground during walking or running, the force of the impact collisions are absorbed by the spring, but the efficiency of that process is dependent, in part, on how the foot rolls when it touches the ground.

    The roll should distribute weight across the foot so it is absorbed gradually, avoiding shock to the skeleton. It rolls from supination (the outside of the foot) to pronation (the inside).

    That roll has to be performed within a safe range, meaning if it starts rolling too far on the outside or too far to the inside, it causes the lower leg limb to twist, imposing abnormal stress and strain through the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the knee, hip, ankle, lower back, lower spine and up through the head.

    http://teamdoctorsblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Safe_Range.jpg

    The spring suspension muscles in the arch of the foot must be strong in order to prevent over rolling (over supination or over pronation) to maintain the foot in a safe range.

    Your spring suspension system muscles that support your arches fatigued and weakened. The arch spring eventually collapsed and locked and that led to further abnormalities in the way you move, imposing stress and strain on all muscles, ligament joints and bones. Eventually, the wear and tear on every joint in the body promotes the inflammation.

    “It’s a three step process: we unlock you, we strengthen the spring and eventually supercharge it,” he said. “That’s a sizeable journey but we start by identifying all the weaknesses in your mechanism.”

    A counter support shoe is usually required to start the strengthening process in conjunction with spring suspension system exercises and carefully constructed running drills.

    To learn how counter support shoes can maintain your foot in the safe range without sabotaging the spring loading that functions to spring you back from impacts and improves efficiency in walking and running by recycling natural energy through the spring read this article:
