Pronation

Pronation occurs at the joint below the ankle, the subtalar joint. It describes the inward rolling motion of the foot just after it lands on the ground. This moment is called initial contact, which is part of the stance phase of the gait cycle that is intended to reduce the impact of your foot landing on the ground. When pronation occurs incorrectly and the arch of the foot collapses upon weight bearing, underpronation or overpronation may develop.
