I am already a midfoot to forefoot striker, so I don't think that is the issue. As for orthotics, the minimalist approach may work for some, but with this particular condition, I can't see any way to stop the late stage pronation EXCEPT through raising the ground up to the big toe with some sort of device; it doesn't have to be orthotics. I love minimalist shoes with a low heel, by the way. I hate running shoes with high heels as that forces heel strike first, which is very inefficient. So the orthotics I have have a cut away heel.
Thanks for the posts
