Mark’s Blog (Stability Shoes)

Whether you are a walker or an elite runner your shoes are a vital tool to help get you to where you want to be. With such a huge range of brands and types of shoes, I have narrowed down a selection of our biggest selling stability shoes to help you find the correct one for you.

Asics GT2000V5
The Asics GT2000V5 is one of our biggest selling shoes and is the go to shoe for overpronators. With it’s firm Duomax stability bar built into the arch of the shoe it helps prevent your foot from overpronating and causing injuries. It has a gel cushioning that reduces the impact of the hard surfaces on your muscles allowing you get that bit further on your run. This shoe is not very wide or too narrow so it would suit most runner’s feet.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17
The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 17 is a brilliant shoe and anyone that buys it will come back and buy it again. It has a very solid support bar in the arch of the shoe, giving a very stable feel when running. It also has a triple density compression molded foam cushion, giving you a nice soft landing on impact. This shoe is a very similar fit to the Asics GT2000.

Mizuno Wave Inspire 13
The Mizuno Wave Inspire 13 is a shoe that we have been selling for a long time and it is a very reliable shoe to run in. It has a double fan wave stability bar which makes it one of the most supportive shoes we have. With a very light cushioning it makes the shoe one of the lightest to run in. The shoes toe-box is slightly wider than the Asics and Brooks so it would suit a slightly wider foot type.

Nike Structure 20
The Nike Structure 20 is another big seller at John Buckley Sports. It is a great high mileage shoe with a good medial arch support. Due to the air cushioning in the shoe it makes it lighter than the likes of the Asics and Brooks. It has a similar fit and feel to the Mizuno Wave Inspire so it would be perfect for those who need a bit of room in the front of the shoe.
