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 are considered to have normal pronation.
The running shoes of normal pronators usually wear evenly along the heel and ball of foot. Check the bottom of an old pair of running shoes to confirm that they are wearing evenly in these areas. Neutral pronators usually have an efficient stride with little wasted motion, but can often benefit from the moderate pronation control and cushioning provided in stability shoes.
Stability shoes for runners are designed with medial support and cushioning. They provide durability with a two-density midsole.
Check out the following video demonstration of normal pronation. It can help you determine if your are a normal pronator.
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 stability shoes are best for you. Check out the selection below.
