Hi Sam,
Love the site; I've been a fan of the reviews and your insights for a few years now.

Although this is an A/B comparison, I wish you included the Ride 15 and compared it to both of them.

Do you believe that support shoes are still needed today?

I over pronate; more significantly in the right foot, and developed anterior tibialis tendonitis in it after multiple long runs in the Endorphin Speed 2 RunShield; Ivan noticed this in Quick Strides 28. I ended up taking a month off, and took pictures on my right foot while standing on it alone in various shoes. The right ankle collapsed in the Speed 2 RS, and less but noticeably so in other shoes in my rotation.

I ended up getting the Shift 2 in January and just recently the Boston 10; the stiff EVA and lightstrike foam, significant arch support, wide rear base (Shift 2), and the plastic heel clip (Shift 2) and the heel bevel (Boston 10) both prevent my right foot from collapsing and over pronating.

I used to use the Asics Kayano/GT-2000 GTX, then Brooks Transcend 6/Adrenalyne 19, then Hoka Clifton 6/Rincon OG and the support shoes caused as many issues as they solved. The supportive neutral category appears to have enough support to prevent arch collapse while over-pronating. The hokas; despite having soft foam, were actually decently supportive as they have a lot of medial side foam and deep sidewalls.

Guess it depends on how bad the over-pronation is? Hoping to see more support natively built into the new super shoes released this season, and perhaps your reviews call out which of those shoes provide the best support.

Thank you!

Karl, I have the same problem.
What shoes are you using now?
Do you guys from roadtrailrun have some suggestions?
Thank you!

Hi Sara
Since the article we have seen a continued shift to more inherent stability designs with instead of plastic pieces and firmer foam a broader platform while using the new lighter weight foams to keep weight down with shoes such as the Kayano 30 and now much broader platform Guide 17. You will find reviews of those at our All Reviews link
