The Best Running Shoes For Ankle Support & Overpronation In 2018

Don’t let problems with your ankles ruin your run. Here are the very best running shoes for ankle support and overpronation this year.

We know you’re keen to get back running. So we considered a ton of shoes from this year’s ranges, and narrowed our choice down to two top picks. Here they are.

Asics GT-2000 4

best running shoes for ankle support

The Asics GT-2000 4 are a real all-rounder. Not only do they offer the comfort and protection for runners with overpronation and/or flat feet, they are suitable to be worn at the track, on the road, or even on the trail.

Asics have injected a basic design function in their GT-2000 4 running shoes. Each part of the shoe is designed to not just support, but to promote the natural shape of the foot and ankle.

This doesn’t make the run comfortable; it makes post-run comfortable too.

It helps runners avoid tearing and inflaming muscles and joints which is usually caused by lack of support. This is all thanks to their intelligent Dynamic DuoMax Support System.

Brooks Beast 14

So, here’s the first mention of Brooks, with one of their best running shoes for overpronation and flat feet. The Beast 14 running shoe has a particular type of runner in mind; those where that have flat feet, or those where their feet roll inwards.

Like the Asics GT-2000 4, these can also be used almost anywhere: road, track, trail – you name it.

The Brooks Beast 14 use what’s known as an Extended Progressive Diagonal Rollbar.

For those with flat feet, this offers support both sides. And, for those that overpronate inwards, it helps to keep feet and ankles in their natural upright position.

Asics GT-2000 4 or Brooks Beast 14?

If you’re looking for a great budget shoe that’s a real all-rounder, the Asics GT-2000 4 is going to be an excellent choice. It helps runners with overpronation and flat feet (or both), to enjoy their run and not feel in pain afterwards.

So, where does the Brooks Beast 14 running shoe win? Unless your picking this shoe purely for design, we’d recommend buying if your overpronation is focused on tilting inwards, as this is exactly what these running shoes were designed to support.
