Best wide flat feet running shoes overall

Thanks for making our daily runs nice and stable, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21! The upper hugged our feet well, and the midsole is balanced - it's neither mushy nor too rigid. It just kept our motions in check, preventing any excessive movements. It's certainly not a light shoe, but having tested its precursors, we can say that Brooks is heading in the right direction! Apart from support, what stood out to us also is its tank-like durability.

Now on its 27th iteration, the Kayano is everything we expect from a premium stability shoe. It's sturdy, supportive, has got an incredibly plush comfort (surprising for a stability shoe)! If there's a hang-up to it, it's the shoe's hefty weight, which for us, is not something that should be penalized, given its top-tier performance.

Best road wide flat feet running shoes

True to its lineage, the Asics GT 2000 9 maintains its identity as the trusty stability road workhorse! It's a durable do-it-all shoe we'd pick if we want one go-to for our daily runs, long-distance stretches, and tempo-paced training runs. Even better, among other stability shoes we've tested, it's one of the springiest!

A stability shoe made for training runs, the Guide 14 from Saucony just gets the job done for us. No frills, no gimmicks, just plain support. While it may be a positive for the shoe, it also renders a negative - it's a dull ride. Whether you're an overpronator or a neutral runner in need of extra arch support, the Saucony Guide is neither obtrusive nor too harsh to not find that sweet spot in your daily running shoe roster.

Best Asics wide flat feet running shoes

Still staying true to its Kayano roots, we found the Kayano 28 retaining its hallmark on stability and support while seeing some updates to amp up comfort and flexibility. And with better flex, the shoe was just overall fun! Although designed as a daily trainer, we found it fitting as a standalone shoe that you can take out of the closet during race day and on long, slow miles.
