New Balance 1080

New Balance's cushiest neutral shoe is lightweight, flexible and very shock absorbent. Built on an 8mm 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 fits are often a little deeper than other wide fits so they give you a bit more space between the insole and the upper creating more volume for your foot.

Hoka Bondi

Hoka One One are known for their exceptionally well padded running shoes with outsized midsoles that almost resemble platform shoes. They are 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 width fitting. Bondi's compression moulded EVA midsole is 33mm thick at the heel and 29mm at the forefoot to give you a soft underfoot feeling and plenty of impact absorption with a meta rocker that rocks you from heel to forefoot to facilitate 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 and you’ll need some support on the inside of the shoe to hold the foot upright and prevent injury. So give one of these a go...

Brooks GTS / Brooks Addiction / Asics Kayano / Asics Foundation / Asics GT-2000 / New Balance 860 / Nike Zoom Structure

Brooks GTS

The Adrenaline GTS is one of the most popular and effective antipronation shoes around. Support features reduce pronation and hold the foot in the optimum position so you can run or walk with confidence. BioMogo DNA cushioning attenuates the shock on landing. A super comfy upper with a midfoot saddle to cradle the foot completes the experience. 2E and 4E for men, D and 2E for women.

Asics Kayano

Asics Kayano is the Rolls Royce of running shoes. A Duomax support system works with a stabilising heel counter and trusstic (bridge on the outsole under the middle of the foot) to stop the feet over pronating. Two of Asics' top midsole materials - Flytefoam Lyte and Flytefoam Propel combine to absorb shock and give you a bouncy and cushioned ride without excess weight. A double layered jacquard mesh upper offers breathability and comfort. Men's 2E.

Asics Foundation

The Foundation is a straight-lasted, highly supportive motion control shoe from Asics with Gel cushioning. Engineered to reduce even the severest pronation, the Foundation is a little heavier and more solid than many other stability shoes. The men's comes in a 2E width fitting and the women's comes standard width which fits more generously than most.

Asics GT-2000

Specially constructed for stability, a Dynamic Duomax support system on the inside keeps the arch from pronating too far inwards and an external heel clutch system strengthens the back of the shoe for added support. 2E wide fit for men.

Blue/White £85.00 £120.00

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 stabilizes pronating feet. In our experience, wide fitting New Balance shoes tend to be a bit broader deeper than their equivalents in other makes so they offer a little more volume than some others. Wide and extra wide for men (2E and 4E.) Wide D width for women.

Nike Zoom Structure

The Zoom Structure is Nike's one and only stability shoe. It features Nike's trademark bouncy Air cushioning for a soft landing and a dual density midsole (firmer on the inside) stops the foot from rotating too far inwards. A comfy and supportive breathable upper completes the package. Women's wide width.

Wide-fitting trail running shoes

Best Wide-Fitting Trail Running Shoes

For years and years there's been a gap in the market for a specifically wide fitting trail running shoe. Up until now, we've had to make do with the standard width trail running shoes that come up wider than the rest and this can vary from year to year as I've found to my cost. A shoe that fits my wide feet one year will get updated the next year and I can no longer squeeze my horizontally-challenged plates of meat into them. Salomon and Hoka have provided us with a solution...

Salomon Speedcross / Hoka Challenger

Salomon Speedcross Wide

Custom built for wide feet, this Speedcross is in its element on soft, wet terrain where its 6mm chevron shaped lugs provide monster grip both up and downhill and on the flat. The wet grip rubber outsole is sticky enough to reduce slippage on wet rocks or pavements. A tough, anti debris mesh upper with a built-in mudguard protect the feet over rugged trails and a moulded EVA midsole cushions the foot when the ground is harder. Super trail running power for wide feet.
