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

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"

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.

Go to a specialty store and get fitted for functionally appropriate running shoes. You'll be running in no time.

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

I know most sport shoes brands, ie. Nike make shoes to help with this...
