Here are some great Motion Control running shoes for all you severe overpronators out there! The Mizuno Wave Alchemy 10 is a nice comfortable, breathable and light weight shoe with maximum stability.

The Pros:

It has a synthetic air mesh that helps keep your feet cool and dry. As well as the Mizuno Intercool midsole ventilation system that also reduces heat and humidity build-up inside the shoe to compliment the air mesh. The Dynamotion Fit relieves the stress the foot naturally places on footwear, which eliminates distortion for a better fit. They also have a great engineering approach to minimize the rapid acceleration and deceleration of the foot during transition, creating the smoothest ride possible. I also love the way these shoe’s fit. They are nice and snug on my heel but leave some extra room near the toes. So over all these have everything I want out of a good pair of motion control running shoes.

The Cons:

Ok maybe it is just me but I’m not to crazy about the look of these shoe’s. Overall appearance  is just kind of ugly to me. But like momma always said “It’s what’s on the inside that counts.” And what’s on the inside of these shoes is worth dealing with the gnarly color scheme! Check them out for yourself!

If you are looking for a good pair of running shoes for flat feet then you've found it! The NIKE Zoom Structure Triax+15 It covers all the bases and keeps you comfortable and overpronation free! The stability aspects are fairly standard: a slight give on the outside of the heel, denser foam under the arch and a plastic shank in the arch for added support. All pretty standard stuff. The part that makes it my favorite is how comfortable it is. It’s a nice snug fit meant to hold your foot in place with enough cushion to not feel constricting. The inside has a low shaped arch, keeping it comfortable for people with flat feet or just a low arch. The upper mesh is breathable and comfortable. And the mesh liner keeps your feet cool and dry. The Sole has deep grooves to provide flexibility so your foot is able to roll naturally through the step, and the grip is great for running on wet concrete. 

All in all it’s a nice light weight shoe that provides durability, comfort and the support your arches need. If your trying to find some good running shoes for flat feet to help correct overpronation then I highly recommend the Nike Zoom Structure Triax+ 15. Trust me your feet will thank you!

As far as arch support goes these are great stability running shoes! It’s also very comfortable for the most part. To start with the nylon mesh in the upper shoe is very breathable, which I consider very important on long runs. The midsoles are made of ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) so you know it is light weight and has plenty of cushions. But just to sweeten the pot, it also includes the Asics Gel impact system. If you’ve never experienced the Asics Gel pack then you don’t know what you’re missing out on. I will complain about a lot of things with various shoes but this is one thing I’ll never whine about. Seriously comfortable.  Anyway, back on track, the sole of the shoe has pretty decent grip and of course all the wonderful things that makes it a stability shoe.

The bad part? The heel has a tendency to slip. Nothing more annoying than having a shoe that rubs against the back of your ankle. Of course from what other people I’ve talked to and reviews I’ve read not everyone has this issue. In fact the majority of people have no complaints about this shoe. But if you choose to purchase this model I suggest you don’t waste any time testing them out, just in case you need to make a return.

Overall these are great stability running shoes. It’s crazy comfortable and does a great job of correcting your gait. All in all I’ll give it 4 stars. I know I’m knit picking with the heel slipping thing because I’m one of the few who got affected, but if you don’t have that problem then you’ll love these shoes.
