10 Best Running Shoes For Supination in 2022

Supination happens when runners put more stress on the outer part of their feet during landing. Or in simpler terms, it’s when the feet tend to roll outward. 

Unlike overpronation (feet roll inward), runners who supinate don’t necessarily need stability shoes. These tend to be very rigid on the inner side, which will only worsen supination. Given this, it’s best to go for neutral running shoes. They are more flexible, allowing unrestrained motion.

In this selection, we have prepared the best neutral shoes to help you run more comfortably and confidently.

How we test running shoes

Apart from getting the best running shoes for supination with our own money, we have also invested in creating our own shoe testing lab. Here, we gather data on each shoe to understand better which ones are more superior to others. 

To test them, we carefully follow this process: 

  • Run in the shoes for 30-50 miles to see how they perform and how sturdy they are
  • Cut each shoe into pieces to see what’s inside
  • Measure them in 30 different aspects like breathability, weight, cushiness, and more
  • See how they stand against other running shoes on the market through our CoreScore

The CoreScore is generated through thousands of expert and user reviews. It’s a number that ranges from 0-100, giving you a clear picture of how good/bad a shoe is.

The Pegasus road series just holds a special place in our feet, we just had to see it in trail action. And voila! 50 miles later, the Nike Pegasus Trail 3 won us over with its uber plush landings! Unlike other trail shoes, it's NOT dense nor dull, it's stable and comfy and will make your run cloud-like. When faced with slick surfaces, however, it shows its limitations.
