11 Best Stability Shoes for Runners for 2018

What’s the best stability running shoe? It’s the shoe your foot feels best in when you first try it on—and when you’re grinding out the last long run before your goal half marathon. Most runners pronate. Their feet hit the ground on the outside edge and then roll to the inside as they go airborne again. But runners whose feet roll more than most often find they feel most comfortable in shoes with stability features, like a softer heel or a sole with a firmer medial post. Neutral trainers with some stability features like the Brooks Ghost are popular with runners who need just a mild amount of support, while runners who need even more tend to do best with shoes in the stability shoe category. Based on a survey of 11,000 runners, we’ve determined the best stability shoes for women (and the men trying to keep up with them).

Based on a survey with 11,000 participants, we have some suggestions where you can find the best running shoe for supination. Because supinators are runners, too.

So instead of lying awake at night, imagining yourself as the next feature on some “Gruesome Jogging Injuries of the Week” video channel, now might be the right time to look for the best running shoes for shin splints.

In my last marathon, the sun rose right on cue—and right into my eyes. In the point to point race, the bright sun made me squint, turn away, and look at the ground; I know I gained some wrinkles (and lost some time) because I didn’t have the right sunglasses for running. At Janji, we love running and we love gear.
