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.

It’s cold outside; the wind is smacking you right in the face as you turn the bend, freezing your face from your brow to your neck.

9 Best Narrow Running Shoes for Women 2018

It seems like every shoe on the market advertises its “sock-like fit.” A snug fit is easy for runners with normal or wide feet, but a narrow foot can leave the same shoe flopping around like a flat tire.
