Best Brooks shoes for Women who prefer stability support

The Seattle-based Brooks is the number one selling shoe brand in running stores. This is because the running-only Brooks has stayed innovative while remaining true to the foundational success of its top styles, such as the Adrenaline, Ghost, and Glycerin. When a new runner wants their first running shoe, Brooks is often the perfect entry shoe since its award winning styles can fit almost any stride. And for the long time runner who has worn Brooks for years, there's no reason to try another shoe since the brand works great mile after mile.

People who pronate have their arches collapse inward when they run. There's nothing wrong with this--in fact, many of the world's best runners are pronators. The key is to find the right sneaker to help mitigate the issue. Stability shoes help overpronators by keeping the gait straight as the foot hits the ground. These shoes provide decent arch support and solid cushioning. You can find stability competition shoes, regular pavement shoes, or trail shoes.
