Supination, also known as under pronation, is the insufficient inward roll of the foot after landing. It may be the result of having a naturally high-arching foot, or it may also be caused by certain muscle weakness in your calves, ankles, or feet that are a result of ill-fitting running shoes, improper gait, or previous injuries.
