Best Running Shoes for Heel Support

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

New Balance 860 / Saucony Hurricane / Saucony Omni / Mizuno Inspire / Brooks Adrenaline GTS


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.

Saucony Omni

Solid support with good shock absorption. A layer of Saucony’s bouncy Everun cushioning on top of the midsole gives a springy underfoot feel. The heel collar and lacing system have been redesigned to enhance the heel and midfoot fit. The medial underfoot support post has been improved to support the foot better as it goes through the gait cycle.

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


Hoka Arahi

Hoka One One's popular supportive road running shoe, the Arahi 5 has been redesigned from top to bottom to deliver your feet greater fit and comfort. The Arahi 5 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.

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

Asics GT-1000

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

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


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.

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.
