Whether you’re a mild or severe overpronator, the last thing you want to do is get caught in the wrong pair of running shoes and risk serious injury. First and foremost, steer clear of neutral and minimal sneakers, as they just don’t provide enough cushion or support to help an overpronating foot absorb shock and correct the inward rolling.

Instead, what you’ll be looking for are running shoes labeled stability, support, and motion control for the most severe cases of overpronation. Unfortunately, these details aren’t always easily identified, especially when shopping online, so we’ve done the work for you and selected ten of the best sneakers for pronators this summer. From moderate levels of support to maximum cushioning, these are 10 Great Running Shoes for Pronators This Summer.

No. 10 – Asics Gel-Kensei 5

Great for mild overpronators, the Asics Gel-Kensei 5 is cushioned with one of the brand’s latest innovations, FluidRide. Designed to strip away weight while offering increased energy return, it’s paired with a heel Impact Guidance System and Propulsion Trusstic for a setup that works in unison with the movements of the foot’s muscles. Even the seamless upper of the Gel-Kensei 5 is designed to flow in harmony with your foot’s natural motion, allowing for a smooth and efficient run.

No. 9 - Nike LunarGlide 6

Fresh out of the Swoosh’s lab is the Nike LunarGlide 6, ideal for those with mild to severe overpronation. The redesigned upper brings a new level of breathability and fit to the LunarGlide line while also allowing for some head-turning prints via the Nike iD options. Of course, the brand’s trusty Lunarlon foam takes care of shock absorption, and Nike iD also offers the option for extra cushioning on the sockliner, making this a great choice for overpronators.

No. 8 – Mizuno Wave Paradox

Lightweight, supportive, and lightning quick, the Mizuno Wave Paradox builds on the brand’s control shoes of the past for their most advanced option for overpronators thus far. The bouncy U4ic midsole is matched up with a blown rubber and articulated Wave Plate forefoot for cushioning and forward propulsion. Meanwhile, the Wave Paradox’s flowing upper inspires its name with a print that appears curved but is actually composed entirely of straight lines.

No. 7 – Saucony Stabil CS3

The Saucony Stabil CS3 lives up to its name by delivering exactly what it promises, and that’s plenty of stability which in turn provides pronation correction. The Stabil CS3 uses the brand’s Powergrid cushioning in a full-length setup that is perfect for severe overpronators and is capped off with a breathable synthetic and mesh upper.

No. 6 – Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14

The latest model to join the Brooks Adrenaline line is the GTS 14, which is touted to provide a smoother and more efficient run than its predecessors. The brand’s user-specific DNA cushioning adapts to your foot with use, and a Segmented Crash Pad has been enhanced with full ground contact to make impact safer and more comfortable. Elsewhere, 3D Fit Print upper forgoes stitching for a flexible fit that is both breathable and supportive.

No. 5 – adidas Supernova Sequence 7

Designed for moderate overpronators, the adidas Supernovas Sequence 7 has just the right amount of support to take care of your pesky inward rolling. Down low, it’s been tweaked with the Three Stripes’ popular Boost cushioning, which is as responsive as it is durable. If you’ve been wanting to try Boost but have been deterred by the neutral Energy Boost model, the Supernova Sequence 7 is for you.

The Saucony Omni 13 caters to mild and high overpronators alike. Much like the Stabil CS3, the Omni 13 is loaded with full-length Powergrid cushioning, allowing for shock absorption from heel to toe while remaining lightweight. Inside, Saucony’s Rundry liner adds extra moisture management to the mesh upper, making this an ideal selection for the summer heat.

No. 3 – New Balance 1260v4

Now in its fourth generation, the latest New Balance 1260 has been tweaked to offer even better pronation control thanks to an extended medial post. The New Balance 1260v4’s cushioning is split up into three sections, with low-profile N2 in the heel, protective Abzorb in the midfoot, and responsive Acteva Lite in the forefoot, which is exactly where you’ll need it most when moving forward.

No. 2 – Asics Gel Kayano 20

20 models deep. The Asics Gel Kayano 20 is the latest update to one of the most storied and groundbreaking running series on the market. Best for severe overpronators, the Kayano 20 is built with a mesh and synthetic-based FluidFit upper that is both breathable and formfitting. Meanwhile, the FluidRide midsole is teamed with the brand’s tried and tested Gel cushioning for a supportive feel that will keep overpronators safe and comfortable.

No. 1 – Brooks Beast 12

Severe pronators in need of extreme correction should consider the Brooks Beast 12. The fact that the model hasn’t needed an update since 2012 should tell you just how good it is, but if you don’t believe us, try them out for yourself. The chunky, multi-density midsole of the Brooks Beast 12 makes use of full-length DNA cushioning for maximum support, while the no-frills upper skips gimmicky constructions for a breathable mesh-based build. If your pronation is causing you monster-sized problems, the Brooks Beast 12 is the perfect combatant.
