The degree of pronation indicates the extent to which a model provides support for overpronating runners. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the model gives a high degree of correction. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the model does not correct. Neutral runners don’t need a correction, overpronating runners often do need a certain degree of correction.
The level of support indicates to what extent the shoe supports your foot arch. The amount of support needed is closely connected to ones weight. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little support, making the shoe more suitable for lighter runners. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe gives a lot of support; thereby making the shoe very suitable for heavier runners.
The level of cushioning indicates the extent to which a shoe absorbs shocks that occur during landing phase. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe provides little cushioning. When wearing running shoes that provide little cushioning, you experience a lot of ground contact and responsiveness. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe provides a lot of cushioning. When wearing shoes with a lot of cushioning you will experience a softer running feel, but less ground contact and less responsiveness.
The level of responsiveness indicates how energetic a running shoe feels. This often is also referred to as the degree of reactivity. If the highlighted bar is on the far left, the shoe is less responsive. If the highlighted bar is on the far right, the shoe is very responsive. When a shoe is responsive the energy of the landing phase is returned to you during take-off.
