Best shoes for Men who prefer stability support and land on their heel

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.
