Best shoes for Men with average builds who need good support

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
