Should I Buy a Cushioning Shoe or a Stability Shoe?

Cushioning Shoe:

  • Made for both those with a neutral walking or running gait and for those who supinate (or roll outward) during their gait
  • If the wear on your sneakers looks even on both the inside and outside of the heel, you are probably a neutral walker or runner
  • A cushioning shoe is the best choice for you

Stability Shoe:

  • Helps with pronation control
  • Designed with technology to prevent overpronation (or rolling inward during your gait), such as a Rollbar, TS2, Extended Web, Stabilicore or medial and lateral posts
  • If the wear on your sneakers is mostly on the inner tread near the ball of the foot, a stability shoe is a good choice for you
