Some angle here is natural; a normal pronator has an angle that allows for about a 15% inward roll of the foot from back to front from heelstrike to toe-off.
With most pronators, every time the foot strikes the ground the arch crushes the medial aspect (inside) of the midsole, as the foot excessively rolls inward during the stance phase.
