I don't care for that. The entire sole of the foot should rest flat on the midsole of the shoe, with nothing riding up or over. In most shoes my entire 5th metatarsal is riding up on the edge of the midsole, which nowadays have ridges all along the lateral edge. Pressure on the 5th metatarsal sends signals to your nervous system to pronate and evert the foot, which is not a good thing.
