Running shoes : (3 categories)

1. Neutral- These shoes have no pronatory control. Very few people need these shoes. 

  • Brooks : Dyad 
  • Saucony : Triumph
  • Solomon: XR Mission (Trail shoe)

2. Stability Level- This type of shoe has increased density foam on the inside of the heel/ arch  to prevent  the foot from pronating. Most runners/walkers fall in this category. 

  • Brooks: (flat / wide feet) Adrenaline GTS  / Addiction / Ravena New Balance : ( flat /wide feet ) 860Saucony: Omni / Guide ( Zero Drop)
  • Asics: (higher arch) GT 3000 / Kayano
  • Mizuno: ( high arch) Wave inspire / Wave Paradox

3. Motion Control:  These shoes will often not only have an increased density foam along medial arch / heel,  but they will also have a plastic insert in the medial heel called a bridge to increase stability.  These are for significant pronators or moderate pronators who weigh over 200 lbs.
