We have listed running shoes under three categories; maximum stability, stability, and neutral. Maximum stability shoes are designed to provide significant support for flat-footed or severe overpronators and bigger runners while neutral shoes are designed for lighter more efficient or underpronating runners.   Moderate and mild stability offers some features for the majority of runners who fall somewhere in the middle of the pronation and size spectrum
