    I very recently started running (probably still more like jogging/walking) again and have been looking to purchase new shoes as motivation to keep it up. I am actually a swimmer, so the idea that there is a neutral or a stabilizing type of shoe is completely new to me. So this article is very informative and also very timely for me.

    Based on your article, it seems that my foot actually tends to roll inward so I would need stabilizing shoes, right? Is there a specific brand of shoe or specific line within a brand that you recommend offers the best support for running for “over-pronators?” I tend to prefer Nike brand shoes, but to be honest, I choose based on looks, not on the support and that’s probably my first problem :). Any recommendation of shoe brand to consider would go a long way for someone like me! Also, are there soles that can compensate to make a shoe work better for someone if they have the wrong type of running shoe?

      Thank you for your kind words.

      Yes, when your foot rolled inward, you need stabilizing shoes. Overpronation is the inward rolling of the feet as they hit and launch off the ground. Stability shoes have later on evolved into shoes that do not merely correct overpronation but provide comfort and support to the gait that the runner is most comfortable with it.

      My opinion is that you can´t use an extended type of shoes for you and others with a similar problem in the long term. But o motion-control shoes are for sure an option. Running socks and shoes are very important for your leg and because of that for your body too.

      About the brands, there are many good shoes on the market now, but I wrote an article which I hope will help you. There are three high shoes reviewed. You can see the review here. Too, there is a lot of information about running shoes in this article.

      If I can help you with anything else, or if you have any questions, don´t hesitate to contact me.
