Overpronation is something that can be aided and corrected quite easily with the right support and fit in our shoes but if it is left too long then the problem can lead to a series of other foot complaints – such as Plantar Fasciitis – and sufferers end up requiring more from their orthotic shoes than a simple piece of arch support. The popular running shoe styles in 2017 for overpronators, that are highlighted below all place heavy emphasis on motion control and/or arch support to aid and correct the overpronating foot but from there they can differ greatly in the other supportive features for additional complaints, the comfort features that make them desirable sports shoes and the style.
Top Running Shoes with Arch Support for Overpronators
1. Brooks Beast Mens 14 Running Shoes
This Brook’s men’s model is a beast of a running shoe. Support is essential to correcting pronation concerns. And the Beast provides it in spades. Mesh upper with synthetic skeletal crossing provides breathability and a secure fit. Interior moisture control mesh sock liner wicks sweat away from the feet and helps keep them dry and temperature controlled even during marathons. Extra padding and segmented crash pad in the 14 model work together with the diagonal roller bar to offer the perfect comfort, support and lift expected from a pair of top-of-the-line shoes for overpronators.
Thick rubber sole and grip tread ensures proper bounce and safety over most terrain. And Brooks even takes it a step further by incorporating BioMoGo material into the midsole which breaks down quickly in landfills or for faster recycling purposes. One thing is important to note: these shoes are not the most durable options for serious fitness enthusiasts. The sole is known to detach with continuous wear. Most customers fall in love with the fit and find it worthwhile to continue replacing the shoe. But if that’s not in your budget, others may work better for your needs.
2. Brooks Addiction 12 Motion Control Running Shoes
Brooks Addiction 12 come in men’s and women’s models for those who need true beginner’s motion control shoes at an affordable price. Available in black and grey color options for men and blue or purple for women, the synthetic material and mesh uppers offer the fit and durability expected from Brooks. Multiple width options ensure decent comfort right out of the box. But the men’s model does run significantly more narrow than the women’s model. Trying before buying can help ensure the perfect size is ordered online. Sole-based roller bar design creates a smoother glide and helps correct even serious pronation. Adjustable footbed can be removed or used with your own orthotic inserts to create the perfect support and comfort system for your needs. Raised heel helps to realign the body and relive back and joint pain. And the HPR Plus special abrasion-free rubber outsole helps to extend tread life and ensure shoe durability.
New Balance hit the mark with their their 1340V2. Available in men’s or women’s, the white/blue synthetic material and textile uppers breathe and bend with your feet to provide the optimal fit and support. Made specifically for moderate pronation, the rubber shock absorbing sole and flex grooved tread ensure safety and stability while healing. Deep padded ortholite footbed is low to the ground for serious control and comfort for flat footed runners.
The footbed also contains a microbial treatment to avoid bacteria build up which leads to odor and fungal development. Available in multiple widths, it’s great for those suffering from plantar fasciitis as well. Touted as a Medicare accepted diabetic-friendly shoe for flat feet, the New Balance 1340V2 earns its placement as one of the best shoe models for overpronation.

Saucony provides a lighter weighted shoe in the CS3 so that footwear is less of a burden as it helps to correct even severe pronation.
