Top 100 Biomechanical Guideline #55: Develop the attitude that supination is always "evil" and pronation may not be so bad

When doing gait evaluation, contact phase supination where the heel rolls out (excessive supination or also called lateral instability) is always bad, whereas pronation can be bad or good. With so many shoes over controlling the foot, eliminating all of the pronation needed for shock absorption and adaptability with the ground, no wonder some of the running community is going towards less and less stable shoes. 

Supination---bad
Pronation---good at times, bad at times
