adidas Overpronation Running Shoes

Protect your muscles, tendons and arches with adidas running shoes engineered specifically to combat overpronation. These shoes put stability front and center so you move confidently and comfortably at any distance, or even just around town. Styles with our Linear Energy Push (LEP) 2.0 system provide extra stability and a guided feel for controlled landings and propulsive toe-offs. adidas Boost cushioning delivers incredible energy return and instant comfort with each step to power you to the finish line. Continental™ Rubber outsoles provide reliable traction on wet and dry surfaces, so your stability doesn't take a hit when the conditions change.

When it comes to finding running shoes that minimize overpronation and maximize stability, what wraps around the foot is just as important as what goes under it. That's why we dialed in the heel counter for enhanced lockdown without restricting movement. The uppers are lightweight, stretchy and breathable to keep the air flowing while supporting the foot's movement as it flexes. Add a layer of protection from the rain in styles with GORE-TEX waterproof membranes. When you're in the right shoes, you help minimize the risk of injury and run longer, faster and more comfortably. So lace into stability and comfort and banish overpronation in lightweight, supportive adidas running shoes.

Stability Overpronation Running Shoes Frequently Asked Questions

Overpronation running creates an inward roll of your foot as you land. It frequently happens with runners whose feet have a flatter arch, but it can happen to higher-arch runners as well. As the heel lands and the foot progresses through the gait, the pressure falls on the inside of the foot, from the inner heel to the big toe, rather than spreading evenly across the foot. Historically, overpronation running shoes have countered this with a medial post. More modern stability shoes do away with that midfoot bar and focus on advanced cushioning to support the stride.
For a long time, the type of shoe recommended for overpronators was a stability shoe with a medial post. Now there are more shoes that replace the medial post with motion-control cushioning, which compresses more easily on the outer foot than the inner. Either of these types of shoes can be good for overpronators, and what's most important is that you feel comfortable in the shoes. So look for shoes that have good support through every phase of your stride, whether that involves a medial post, targeted cushioning or both.
One way you can tell if you overpronate is by checking the tread pattern on your shoes. If they’re more worn on the inside sole and the area under the big toe, it might be because of overpronation. You might also have symptoms such as pain in your heel or arch. You can go to a running shoe store so they can assess your gait.
