Best extremely durable shoes for Men who prefer stability support

There is nothing worse than having a shoe that falls apart after a single wear. Finding a top, durable shoe can mean the difference between getting 50 miles out of a pair... or 500. And that extra durability can save you serious money. But having a durable shoe not only means saving money: it means less injuries, a better run, and a healthier life.

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.
