Best Running Shoes for Heel Support

If your foot starts to roll in at the heel you could try:

Brooks Vapor / New Balance 860 / Saucony Hurricane / Saucony Omni / Mizuno Inspire / Brooks Transcend / Brooks GTS


Brooks Vapor

A progressive diagonal rollbar (the materials under the heel start off soft on the outside but get increasingly dense as you move towards the inside) offers very strong and solid support at the heel. A BioMogo DNA midsole gives excellent cushioning. Comparatively inexpensive but with no loss of quality.

New Balance 860

A medial post controls pronation and a two layered midsole offers soft cushioning when you land. The engineered mesh upper conforms to the shape of your foot. Also available in width fittings (see below).

Saucony Hurricane

The full-length Everun midsole of the Hurricane gives splendid light cushioning for short, or up to extremely long runs. The medial posted midsole corrects over pronation, but still keeps the shoe flexible enough to give you a smooth ride. Soft breathable mesh with ISO lacing system wraps your foot comfortably, and reduces excess motion. This is indeed the premium Saucony shoe.

Solid support with good shock absorption. A layer of Saucony’s bouncy Everun cushioning on top of the midsole gives a springy underfoot feel. Omni Iso has an IsoFit upper which shapes itself to the foot and the support wedge goes a little deeper in towards the middle of the shoe to give you greater support.

Saucony Guide / Brooks Ravenna / Asics GT-1000 / Asics GT-2000 / Asics Gel Kayano

The GT-1000 is cheaper than most but is still a very good long distance running shoe.
