3. ASICS GEL-Kayano
An old favourite of ours, the GEL-Kayano proves its worth yet again as a great shoe for overpronation. Its cushioned sole helps reduce the impact on your ankles from landing at an awkward angle while running and the external heel clutching system keeps the shoes tight.
We’ve been a fan of these for a while, and they’re great for giving support to overpronators too.
Pros: Great All-Rounder, Tried and Tested
2. Brooks Adrenaline GTS
Originally designed for supporting runners with plantar fasciitis, the brooks adrenaline range are great for runners with overpronation problems as well.
Since the shoe is specifically designed to support the foot as much as possible – particularly the arch – this helps alleviate the issues caused by pronation of the ankle. The result is a comfy run that is much less likely to result in injury, and they can even help correct the problem!
Pros: Great Arch Support, Heel Correction, Super High-Tech
1. Mizuno Wave Inspire
Specially-designed for overpronators, Mizuno’s Wave Inspire range really are great. Famed for their high-quality sports products, Mizuno haven’t failed to deliver. This has to be, by far, our number one best shoe for overpronation.
The sole is curved to minimise the impact of flat feet common to overpronators, and the midsole is designed to flex as your feet adjust through your stride. The result is that the shoes aren’t limited by the changes in foot angle common to overpronation – they’re comfy, durable, and they make running easy.
Pros: Specially-Designed, Adaptive Sole Technology
