Stability running shoes are designed for runners with normal arches that are semi-flexible. Their feet roll inwards only slightly after the heel touches. These runners have normal pronation.
The running shoes of normal pronators wear evenly along the heel and ball of foot. Normal pronators usually have an efficient stride, but usually benefit from the moderate pronation control and cushioning provided in stability shoes.
Check out this video demonstration of normal pronation:
Stability shoes for runners are designed with medial support and cushioning. They provide durability with a two-density midsole.
If you overpronate while running, you would probably benefit more from Motion Control Running Shoes.
If you are an underpronator, then Cushioning Running Shoes are for you.
However, if you are a normal pronator, then you should check out the stability shoes below.
