Q. What is the Wet Foot Test?

the wet foot test

A. The wet foot test is a common, simple method for determining arch type.

How to Perform:

  1. Wet your feet and walk several steps on dry pavement.
  2. Examine the footprints left behind.
Test Results:
  • A normal foot will leave a heel print that is connected to the forefoot by a strip approximately half the width of the foot on the outside of the sole.
  • An over-pronated foot, however, will likely leave a print that shows little distinction between the rear and forefoot – you'll see almost your whole footprint, hence the "flat foot" reference.
  • Conversely, an under-pronated foot (i.e., having a high arch) will leave little or no middle footprint.
