Up to a couple of years ago, stability running shoes were synonymous with "dual density midsole" or "medial post": there would be a harder piece of foam in the midsole under the arch to counter over-pronation.
Although there are still many, good, running shoes that adopt this solution, support shoes in 2021 are not limited to heavy, rigid shoes with no flexibility at all.
The idea of "rails" to contain the movement of your foot instead of dictating it is gaining popularity and some stability running shoes ditched the medial post all together.
But without further ado, let me introduce our recommendations for best stability running shoes in 2021:
“The redesigned and rebuilt Saucony Guide 13 is an exceptional everyday moderate stability trainer. The additions of PWRRUN cushioning and a new upper turned a great stability trainer into one of the best.”
I recommend the Saucony Guide 13 to those looking for a mid stability trainer for either a half or full marathon.
“The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 offers a supportive yet springy ride as all design components work together to cup the heal with a gentle hug, which transitions smoothly into a solid toe-off. Minor changes to the base and added medial support strips to an overall slimmed-down upper mean this Go-To-Shoe just keeps getting better!”
The Adrenaline continues to shine as an all-around trainer for runners needing steady support, durability, and cushion for everyday runs whether speed or distance is the focus. The cost pays off in the long run, with a durable build and midsole that make it a solid investment whether new to...
“The New Balance 870v5 is a straightforward lightweight stability trainer. The no frills approach may not be for everyone but ideal for those who yearn for simpler consistent lightweight stability trainer built to handle any speed or distance.”
I would recommend the New Balance 870v5 for a runner who wants a simple no nonsense lightweight stability trainer built for miles and speed.
“The New Balance Fresh Foam Vongo v4 hits a precise balance between comfort and hold, avoiding shoe string issues that show up with thin tongues by utilizing traditional width laces with a touch of stretch. The Vongo's unique combination of low drop, high cushion, and varus wedge angled midsole make it stand out as it's own niche of mild stability offering.”
This shoe is tailored to fit runners seeking innovative stability and increased cushion for daily and long runs in a low drop trainer.
