– most of the wear indicates I’m landing on the balls of my feet towards the outside. These are minimal shoes, so it makes sense I’m landing with more of the forefoot. The slight over pronation falls in line with my history.
– there is still some wear on the heel. I think my foot is striking down here secondarily, not sure. So I hit the ball of the foot first, then the ankle pivots down onto the heel before pivoting back onto the toes for the push off. If this is the case, I’m wasting some energy. Another possibility is I’m landing more on the heels on down hills. This would make sense, I tend to lean back and just let the gravity do its work, landing with the heels acts as a breaking maneuver to prevent going too fast.
– overall I don’t see any red flags, looks pretty benign. I’m not so sure how effective this test is. It’s sort of like reading tea leaves. I’m at least happy that the pattern is very evenly distributed, and also very similar on both feet. I may come back to this in a few months when I’ve put more miles on these soles.
