Here is my 0.02 cents worth. Motion control shoes prevent you from the natural gait of your foot. Pronation is normal. I had tendon surgery on my left foot about 2 years ago. I used to wear custom orthotics - but after going to sports doctor. He said I didn't need them. I know use SOLE insoles. They support my arch. I have had them in and can wear with neutral shoes or stability (these shoes will only provide support if you lean into them).

JONAHSADIE: Not sure if I can be of much use, my hard orthotics extend from heel to mid-instep. I usually put them under the shoe insert of my running shoes and they seem to do pretty well there, i.e. don't slide. I also did not need larger shoes--albeit I think I might have worn a bit thinner socks. I find that some of my other dress/casual shoes don't tolerate the orthotic because of size--I think you may have to play around a bit.

Thanks for the other replies--maybe I do need to go back to the foot doc and see what's up. I also have a pair of NB for over-pronators, that I think I'll give a shot and see what happens. Thanks again!

I have an orthotic question although I have not been fitted for it yet.

I had a total hip replacement (right hip) 10 1/2 months ago. Had my thoughts verified recently that my right leg is now 2-3cm longer than the left.

I will be fitted for a heel orthotic (left foot) and was wondering if I will need new shoes that are even bigger than what I currently use for running? I have tried a few heel inserts I bought at the store and they all push my foot forward making a shoe that is slightly big become slightly small by pushing my foot forward.

Just curious what I am in for....LOL Have a half in Sept. and hate to think I have to buy bigger shoes around mid June or a bit later. Not much time to get use to them.

Thanks for any replies.

You might want to give it a try. If they were made for you specifically, you might what to check with your podiatrist first.

I think it's really a question of what makes you feel comfortable. I like wearing orthotics specifically designed for me, but I know people who get everything they need form motion control sneakers.

Not sure I would list orthotics as training gear, but here goes. I use hard orthotics (for flat feet) in a neutral show and have for many years now. But I was wondering--can I just get a motion controlled shoe and not use them?
