Best Asics shoes for Women who prefer neutral support

Over the past 30 years, Asics has made some of the best running shoes on the market. The Gel-Kayano, Gel-Cumulus, and GT-2000 series have been three of the best selling running shoes on the planet. That's because Asics' long commitment to quality and wear testing has produced shoes that runners get hooked on--and never want to take off.

Neutral runners tend to have their arches ever so slightly collapse inward when they run. Their arches are neither flat nor high, but somewhere in between. They require neither stability nor much cushion. What these neutral runners do need, however, is a shoe designed for them. They key is a lack of medial support on neutral running shoes: with such support, neutral runners would be pushed too far outward, leading to injuries. Luckily, every major running brand makes (at least a few) neutral shoes, which can be used from the track to the trail.
