The 5 Best Women's Running Shoes for Neutral Runners to Buy in 2018

Getting the right running shoes for your foot type can help you run more comfortably and stay injury-free. If you don't underpronate (your feet roll outward when you run) or overpronate (your feet roll inward when you run), that means you're a neutral runner. You're lucky that you can choose from a wide variety of running shoes, including ones made for neutral runners or those with slightly flat-feet or high-arched feet. Here are recommendations for women with a neutral running style.

Asics Nimbus Women's Running Shoe

These running shoes are well-cushioned, great at shock absorption, and they're also lightweight. The ComforDry insole helps keep your feet stay dry and healthy. A great choice for female neutral runners, the Asics Nimbus has a loyal fan base, as many wearers report buying another pair once their shoes wear out.

Brooks Glycerin Women's Running Shoe

Whether you're running indoors or outside, these running shoes offer terrific great support, nice cushioning, and incredible comfort. They're ideal for neutral to mild-pronating runners looking for lightweight performance shoes.

Mizuno Wave Creation Women's Running Shoe

These running shoes usually get high praise from wearers as being a durable, well-cushioned shoe. Whether you're training for a 5K or a marathon, the Mizuno Creation is an excellent choice for neutral female runners. It features the Mizuno Intercool full-length midsole ventilation system, which reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe, giving you a comfortable ride.

Adidas Glide Boost

This lightweight, yet durable shoe has soft and springy cushioning and offers great flexibility. Testers say the shoes are very comfortable, almost a sock-like comfort. They are on the narrow side, so they're not a good neutral shoe for those with wide feet.

Saucony ProGrid Triumph Women's Running Shoe

This shoe is designed for the neutral female runner looking for a great, lightweight everyday training shoe. The Saucony Triumph uses ProGrid in the heel for extra cushioning and SRC XTRA keeps the forefoot very cushioned. The shoe's Ortholite insole is breathable, moisture-wicking, anti-odor, and anti-microbial, so it keeps your feet dry and healthy.
