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

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.

From Chi-Running to natural running, many run coaches have been touting the benefit of midfoot running over the past decade. Midfoot running means landing on the center of your foot--not the front (forefoot) or back (heel). Many advocates say this is the natural way to run, and the way humans would be running if our stride wasn't corrupted by hard pavement and clunky shoes. However, because not all running shoes tailor to midfoot runners, people who land in the middle of their foot have to find the right shoe meant for this type of stride.
