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.

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

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


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.

Lighter and more flexible than many equivalent support shoes, the Launch offers good support for the arch.

A DuoMax support system which runs the length of the arch and a stable heel counter work together to provide effective stability. Gel cushioning absorbs shock and an engineered mesh upper offers breathability and control. Version 7 has a reshaped toe box to give you a bit space for your toes. The GT-1000 is cheaper than most but is still a very good long distance running shoe.

Asics Gel Kayano

The Kayano is truly a super-shoe offering a premium cushioned and supportive experience for the overpronating runner. The Flytefoam midsole offers as much cushioning at mile 26 as it did at mile 1 and abundant Gel cushioning delivers the ultimate in plush cushioning. 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 / Asics Foundation


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
Black/Grey £125.00

Brooks Addiction

Super supportive and solid with ample shock absorption. Roomier than most (this women’s shoe is a D width for a wider foot) with a plush insole for step in comfort.
