Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Asics Gel Kayano

Asics gets top marks year after year from runners who want a lightweight shoe with good cushion and enough stability for mild over-pronation. The uppers provide a snug, comfortable fit with a combination of mesh and synthetic leather and a well-padded collar and tongue. The asymmetrical lacing, which is showing up on more and more shoes, provides another nice feature.

Best Budget: Brooks Adrenaline GTS

The best-selling Brooks Adrenaline GTS series is the perfect combination of style, comfort, and medial stability. Each version of the shoe adds some nice new features, but Brooks keeps the heart and "sole" of the shoes the same. This shoe is a great training shoe and has the right amount of durability, stability and cushioning to endure miles of varied terrain. 

Best Style: Adidas Supernova

The Supernova is a great all-around trainer for most foot types. It has every necessary feature a stability shoe needs—it looks great, and the price point fits most budgets.

Best Cushioning: Mizuno Wave Inspire

The engineering behind the entire line of Mizuno Wave shoes is designed to reduce and redirect the impact forces of running away from your foot with every step. Mizuno's Cloudwave technology helps keep your foot cushioned with each stride you take and makes the heel-to-toe transition feel very seamless.

Best Lightweight: Nike LunarGlide

One of the lighter stability shoes on the market, the LunarGlide feels like a minimal shoe when you first pick it up. However, it provides just enough support and stability to keep your midfoot from rolling, and just enough cushion to take up road shock.
