Antipronation Running Shoes

Best Running Shoes for Arch Support

If your foot collapses in later in the stride, i.e. at the arch, here are some options:

Hoka Arahi / Saucony Guide / Brooks Launch / Asics GT-1000 / Asics GT-2000 / Asics Gel Kayano / Brooks Glycerin GTS

Hoka Arahi

Hoka One One's popular supportive road running shoe, the Arahi 6 has been updated with small tweaks. It gives excellent arch support in two ways: with a wide platform under the arch to give a supportive base to the foot. Also with the innovative J -Frame – a slightly firmer density insert running long the medial (inner) side of the foot and then encircling the ankle, giving maximum support to steady overpronation. The engineered mesh upper is more open at the forefoot for increased breathability and has a soft inner heel collar, to deliver a better fit. Also available in a wide fitting.

Saucony Guide

Saucony’s PWRRUN midsole gives the Guide a lively underfoot feel. The TPU guidance frame supports the arch effectively without compromising flexibility. Light, cushioned, easy to run in, but stable enough for moderate to heavy overpronators.

A DuoMax support system which runs the length of the arch and a stable heel counter work together to provide effective stability.

The breathable jacquard mesh upper cradles the foot and the secure heel clutch counter holds the heel comfortably without feeling intrusive. Duomax support reduces pronation.

Motion Control Running Shoes

Best Motion Control Running Shoes

For the serious over-pronator who needs maximum support from a shoe:

Brooks Beast / Brooks Addiction

Brooks Beast

Like its name suggests, this is a Beast of a support shoe. With a super strong progressive diagonal rollbar to control even the heaviest overpronation. Great cushioning and a seam-free comfy upper complete the package.

With the updated Beast 20 Brooks replaced the firm medial post with new GuideRails technology to provide support for over-pronation. Brooks' primary focus is on the knee. GuideRails technology restricts the rotation of your heel, and that way brings your foot and your knee to a more natural alignment.

Men's Brooks Beast '20
£125.00

Brooks Addiction

Super-supportive and solid motion-control shoe with ample shock absorption. Roomier than most in wide fittings (D or 2E for women, and 2E for men). Plush insole for step-in comfort.

Brooks Glycerin GTS 2E

The DNA LOFT v3 midsole is packed with nitrogen while delivering luxurious step-in comfort. The nitrogen makes the midsole much softer, but still lightweight in comparison with the Adrenaline GTS. Brooks' holistic GuideRails support is gentle, yet very effectively in correcting over-pronation to encourage a balanced alignment. The premium upper is a bit more generous, with a soft feel, to give you a next-level experience. Also available in standard width.
