Default Overpronation

I consistently wear out my shoes faster than they should (in my opinion) due to overpronation. I've gone through over 1/8" of sole (at the big toe and outside back heel) in 4 months of owning these shoes. I probably averaged wearing them every other day.

I know Kelly Baggett cites overpronation as a need to stretch out hip flexors and improve glute strength. I stretch the flexors every morning and have been implementing the things from the Dispelling the Glute Myth article from T-nation. I deadlift, front squat, and RDL.

I suppose I could stretch the hip flexors multiple times each day. Is there anything else that can be done? Is it even something I should be worried about?
