Womens Structure Shoes

A support running shoe is a type of running shoe designed to provide additional stability and support for runners who overpronate or have low to flat arches. Pronation refers to the natural inward rolling motion of the foot that occurs during each stride.

Overpronation happens when the foot rolls inward excessively upon landing, causing the arch to collapse and putting additional stress on the ankles and knees. Runners with overpronation may benefit from support running shoes, which are engineered to help correct this motion and provide stability throughout the gait cycle.

Support running shoes typically feature:

 1.  Structured Cushioning: These shoes have extra cushioning in the midsole to absorb shock and provide comfort during the run.
 2.  Medial Support: Support shoes often incorporate a medial post or firmer foam on the inner side of the midsole to help limit excessive inward rolling of the foot and promote a more neutral alignment.
 3.  Stability Features: Some support shoes may include features like a TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) shank or a dual-density midsole to enhance stability and reduce overpronation.
 4.  Arch Support: Support shoes may also offer additional arch support to help support the foot’s natural arch shape and prevent it from collapsing too much during the gait cycle.

Support running shoes are suitable for runners who have a moderate to severe overpronation or low arches and may experience discomfort or injuries due to poor foot alignment. However, it’s essential for runners to choose the right shoe based on their individual biomechanics, running gait, and preferences, as different models may offer varying levels of support and cushioning. Consulting with a knowledgeable shoe fitter can help ensure you find the right shoe for your needs.
