    What mobility work should I be doing to fix it? I know it usually means its an imbalance or somethings not normal.

    You're a pronator IIRC.

    and I dunno if I'm flat footed or not... Ceaze has posted that uneven wear on the outside of your heel means your hips are fucked or something. Can't remember what he said.

    I have this same problem.

    I have a pair of shox that have the outside springs way more compressed than the inside ones, so unless I want to constantly roll my ankle I can't wear them.

    I'd go to a chiropractor..If you got decent health insurance a visit should cost ~ $10.

    I had more wear on my left heel than my right. Dude told me my left leg was longer than my right due to some hip issues.

    most likely an UNDERpronator (or supinator) with a higher arch -- can be a sign of hip or shoulder issues

    these new or older shoes? overweight people will notice it more

    go to a real running store and have them look at your stride and gait

    underpronators usually just need a more cushioned shoe, but usually nothing "special"

    google pronation. common term amongst distance runners. it's the way that your foot strikes the ground with your natural pattern..

    pretty difficult to change long term.

    If you dont know if your flat footed or not get your feet wet and walk on concrete. If the middle of your foot is missing then you have a high arch and more than likely prone to underpronation. If the print shoes all of your foot then you have flat feet then most likely you are prone to over pronation. In that case you need to be looking at stabilty shoes/orthotics.

    I pronate big-time and have nasty shin-splint problems. I can't run.

    i think the point is to figure out what structural imbalance they are having and fix the root cause not put a bandaid on it with a custom shoe
