The GT-2000 from Asics is one of the lightest running shoes but this doesn't mean you need to compromise on support. Slight alterations to the engineering of the shoe with the Heel Clutching System provides support and improved fitting around the heel, and the lightweight cushioning properties of Fluidride midsole mean the shoe weighs much less. An internal fit system in the midfoot that wraps around the foot to support an overpronator and Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel give a little extra cushioning to help to absorb impact. Other features include the Guidance Trusstic System and Guidance Line to encourage gait efficiency, while the Dynamic DuoMax® Support System gives support and cushioning where needed to mild to moderate overpronators.

Stability shoes are designed for runners who overpronate, the majority of runners fall into this category. The initial impact will always be towards the outside of the foot. It then roll inwards to help absorb shock. As it rotates or pronates inwards, it continues beyond the neutral point usually due to having a low arch or flat feet. As the arch collapses, your foot then leans inwards, causing the rest of your lower body to be out of alignment. This can lead to pain in your ankles, shins, knees, hips and back.
The support in a Stability shoe is positioned underneath the arch on the medial side and is usually a harder, darker coloured foam compared to the rest of the midsole. This helps to offer resistance against your arch collapsing and therefore holding you in a better aligned, neutral position. Finding a shoe that supports you correctly is the tricky bit, we would always advise getting your gait properly tested, but if you would like more advice on how to self diagnose whether you need a stability shoe please visit our Gait Analysis page or send us a question.
