With so many supination/ under-pronation shoes (Brooks, Asics, Mizuno, New Balance, Aetrex, Saucony, and Nike), which one do you choose? Hopefully, this guide helps.
To prevent your feet from rolling outward (Supination), I recommend ASICS fuzeX or Asics Gel-Cumulus 19 as best shoes for Supination to allow proper stability and alignment of the musculoskeletal structures.
The models have a more bottomless heel cup, low profile, and are very light. With flexible shoes, you’ll have a number of motion options, and you might even benefit from insoles and women running shoes with better stability.

ASICS launched its fuzeX collection featuring FuzeGEL, its innovative and responsive cushioning system, a combination of their older GEL technology with traditional EVA. Available for both men and women.
Fuzex is appropriate for indoor and outdoor running: being low profile and very light. In addition, the design and cushioning system graduate it to the supinator’s shoes.
Coming with a 6mm heel drop, the shoe is excellent for fast runners. It allows a smooth transition that would be favorable for forefoot, mid-foot, and heel strikers. (1) Fuzex Lyte (2) Discover Fuzex
