New Balance 1080 / New Balance 880 / Hoka Bondi / Hoka Clifton / Brooks Ghost / Brooks Glycerin

New Balance 1080

New Balance's most cushioned neutral shoe is lightweight, flexible and very shock absorbent. Built on an 6mm drop to promote a more natural, midfoot strike. The Men's 1080 comes in a wide (2E) and an extra wide (4E) fitting. The 4E 1080 is the widest of all neutral shoes available, as far as we know. The Women's comes in a wide fitting (D). New Balance wide fittings are often a little deeper than those from other brands, so they give you a bit more space between the insole and the upper, creating more volume for your foot.

Hoka Bondi

Hoka are known for their exceptionally well-padded running shoes, with outsized midsoles that almost resemble platform shoes. They're favoured by ultra-distance runners, runners with persistent injury problems and those who just love a seriously cushioned feel when running or walking. Many of our customers find the fit of Hoka shoes too narrow for them, so we're happy to be able to offer the Bondi – Hoka's loved and trusted ultra-cushioned road running shoe for the neutral striker – in a wide fitting. Its compression-moulded EVA midsole is 31mm thick at the heel and 27mm at the forefoot, to give you a soft underfoot feeling and plenty of impact absorption. A Meta-Rocker propels you from heel to forefoot in a smooth forward motion.

Wide-fitting support running shoes

Best Wide-Fitting Anti-Pronation Road Running Shoes

If your feet have a tendency to collapse inwards when running or walking, your leg is being pulled out of the correct position with every step. You’ll therefore need some support on the inside of the shoe to hold the foot upright and prevent injury.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS / New Balance 860 / On Cloudflyer / Hoka Arahi / Asics Kayano

Brooks Adrenaline GTS

The Adrenaline GTS is one of the most popular and effective antipronation shoes. The GuideRails support system reduces pronation and holds the foot in the optimum position. DNA LOFT 2 cushioning lessens the shock on landing. A super breathable upper with a midfoot saddle to cradle the foot completes the experience. Available in 2E and 4E for men, and D for women.

New Balance 860

A breathable and stretchy engineered-mesh upper adapts to the shape of your foot for a comfortable fit. A dual layer midsole, featuring softer materials on top and firmer materials underneath, offers a cushioned underfoot experience. Structurally sound, a firmer density post on the inside stabilises pronating feet. In our experience, wide-fitting New Balance shoes tend to be a bit broader and deeper than their equivalents in other makes, so they offer a little more volume than others. Wide and extra wide for men (2E and 4E), and wide (D) for women.

Hoka Arahi

Hoka Arahi has returned with another fantastic shoe we think you'll love. Featured in the upgraded model of the Arahi 7, you'll feel how light and breathable the upper material is – the engineered flat knit upper that allows for excellent airflow. Designed in the midsole is a firmer and denser CMEVA foam, which compared to the predecessor, should provide greater stabilty for logging in longer miles.
