Now the hysteria has mellowed, let’s talk about this photo in a little thread
This not a photo of @joshuacheptege1’s ‘over-pronation’ - this is a photo of the foot slipping off the platform as it moves through the contact phase.
The shoe last is generic however there are race characteristics within feet that differ drastically from the last shape.
Those who deal with African and Asian players in football appreciate the struggles of a pes planus foot type wrestling with the last shape of the boot.
So let’s summarise;
This is a photo of Joshua hammering around a bend, leaning a few degrees to the left and his foot sliding through the transition.
It’s not a photo to grandstand pronation vs injury, this is not a photo to grandstand how pronation occurs in elites - cont.
The photo simply demonstrates the shoe’s capability to act as an interface between the foot and the ground.

It’s also a photo to discuss how footwear can interfere with quantitatively assessing pronation.

That is what this photo really means.
