The Best Support/Stability Running Shoes for Overpronation 2024

If you’re a runner, you’ll already know the importance of selecting the right shoe for your running gait, whether you’re a neutral runner, an overpronator or you underpronate.

Over 70% of runners over-pronate to some degree, with the foot rolling inwards excessively through the footstrike, placing strain on the lower leg, knees, hips and lower back. That means most of us will find ourselves looking for a good support shoe to help slow down that excessive inwards movement. A great support shoe helps guide the foot into a more biomechanically efficient position, helping to reduce the risk of injury and optimising the footstrike for better performance.

Here are our top-of-the-range recommendations for overpronators:
