Best New Balance shoes for Women who prefer neutral support

Over 100 years old and deeply rooted in New England manufacturing, New Balance has evolved to become one of the top running shoe companies on the planet. Based in Boston and proudly producing many products in the US, New Balance today continues to innovate by making high quality running shoes, such as their Fresh Foam and Minimus models.

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.
