Reading Inserts: These are from the Top of Some Custom Made Orthotics

I love the art of reading inserts from shoes or from the top of an orthotic device. Here if you look at the medial rear foot, you can tell that there is more pronation force on the right side. As the weight moves forward on the insert, it is too far on the lateral side especially on the left. The weight distribution on the metatarsals is quite even on the right and slightly more lateral on the left. However, the Hallux pressure shows good push off both sides. 
I am happy that there was not blockage of first ray plantar flexion with pressure showing up at the distal medial aspect of the orthotic device. The pronation at heel contact has been blocked, the foot re-supinates and gets weight forward and slightly lateral, so that the first metatarsal phalangeal Joint can have an active push off.
