Stability running shoes are built for runners who require added stabilization and underfoot cushion on the run. These shoes provide optimal arch support and supportive, firm midsole cushioning.
Choose stability shoes with a full-length midsole that provides the strategic comfort you need. A firm midsole should be constructed from quality materials, including EVA or polyurethane. Your footwear should also feature a dynamic support system that maintains support throughout the arch of the shoe.
Look for an upper that provides the strategic breathability you need. Stretch uppers deliver a glove-like fit for added support without extra bulk. Uppers with mesh paneling are lightweight and breathable. Trail runners should look for abrasion-resistant, waterproof materials and a gusseted tongue to block out debris.
Lastly, keep in mind your outsole pattern. Trail and off-road runners need an outsole optimized to grip rugged terrain.
Are stability shoes right for you? Pronation is the natural inward roll of the ankle when your foot strikes the ground. This movement provides shock absorption for your joints and relieves pressures on the body.
Runners who experience an exaggerated form of this inward roll suffer from overpronation. This trait is highly common in runners, but can leave you at risk of joint injuries and soreness. Stability shoes help correct this inward roll to restore your gait to a biomechanically efficient run. Many runners who experience overpronation have flat feet or low arches.
To determine whether you overpronate, look at the soles of your current running shoes. People who overpronate wear the tread on the outer edge of their shoe and near the ball of the foot.
