Control Shoe models for Women
Typically control shoe styles are best for feet with flexible arches. If you stand relaxed with your feet shoulder width apart you will see that your ankles and knees are either inward (pronation)or outward (supination) of your heels or center of your feet. Also control shoes are best for people with Flat Foot This has a low arch and leaves a print which looks like the whole sole of the foot. It usually indicates an overpronated foot – one that strikes on the outside of the heel and rolls inwards (pronates) excessively. Over time, this can cause many different types of overuse injuries. Best shoes: Motion control shoes, or high stability shoes with firm midsoles and control features that reduce the degree of pronation. The biggest problem in the retail /supplier/ magazine review market is that everyone doesn't use the terms. Some companies list thier shoes as stability and then the mags review them in another category such as Control. For example the NB 854 is a moderate stability shoes but is one of those on the market that provides so much support it is 'almost' a Motion Control shoe, but not quite. The NB Motion Control shoe is 1120. The Kayano is the Asics version of the Hurricane, again a moderate support with Max cushioning, but not an Motion Control. The Asics Koji or Foundation are the models for Motion Control. Having said all this... Motion Control is reasonably extreme, and most over-pronators won't require that level of support. Have a gait analysis done at Rehoboth Beach Running Store to verify what degree of stability or motion control is best for you.
