Shoes for Pronators (Read 40 times)

    When I got back into running in 2011 after almost 6 mos off due to injury, I transitioned from Mizunos for road and trail to Inov8 Road X-238 and Roclite 268.  They're very comfortable and I love the wide toe box as every since I switched, I rarely  have blister issues.

     

    Unfortunately, I am now having AT tendonitis issues because of minor pronation.  I have had custom orthotics made, but if I could find shoes to correct the problem, I'd rather change me shoes.  I could spend endless hours reading about all the shoes and their recommendations, but I thought I'd come in here first and see if there are any suggestions.  I'm female and wear a 10.5, which has always been an issue finding in the Inov8.

     

    So looking for a women's trail running shoe to help with minor pronation and with a wide toe box.  Any suggestions?

        Hi Leslie - I overpronate with my right foot and wear custom orthotics in both shoes for over 10 years now. These are the trail shoes I got last year when I first began trail running:

        I decided to give them a try based on their description and haven't looked at anything else.  I love Love LOVE them! My feet are very picky and these have been Perfect from the get go.  Give them a shot!

         

        (MTA: I also require a wide toe box.)

        Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

          Thanks.  I'll look into those.

           

          Did an EZ 5-mile run/walk today.  The most I've done in 6 weeks.  Had to wear my Mizunos, which I got out of to go to the Inov8, and sure enough - started getting hot spots within  a couple of miles.  A comfortable shoe for walking around in, but too narrow for me for running.

            Oops, it looks like the link I posted above is no longer valid.

            Here's a link to that particular shoe on the NorthFace website. It does come in a 10.5 size BTW.

            uh oh I could be in troubleWink In looking up the shoe for you, I came across a gorgeous aqua color version that I really must have! Check this out!

            http://www.amazon.com/Womens-The-North-Face-Double-Track/dp/B008CPSRYQ/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1368305263&sr=8-6&keywords=womens+the+north+face+double+track

            Of course my gaiters (see avatar pic) would mostly cover them up and then mud would do the rest; so is it worth it? for the beautiful color? when the other models are so much cheaper? a dilemma....

             

            PS: looked further and see the aqua shoe is a "Double Track Guide" model which is ""new for 2013" and "lighter and lower." I don't know if lower would be better or not?

            Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

              Hi there.  I had the same problem for a long time, and I always ran in my roadie Asics, even on trails.  A month ago, I got a pair of Peral Izumi EM shoes, and I love them.  They are so very roomy in the toe box, and so comfortable to wear.  They don't really offer stability, but somehow they work for me.

              If you are getting hot spots, you might try a different sock.
