Best Women's Running Shoes for Neutral Runners


Updated May 16, 2014

Getting the right running shoes for your foot type can help you run more comfortably and stay injury-free. If you don't underpronate (your feet roll outward when you run) or overpronate (your feet roll inward when you run), that means you're a neutral runner. You're lucky that you can choose from a wide variety of running shoes, including ones made for neutral runners or those with slightly flat-feet or high-arched feet. Here are recommendations for women with a neutral running style.
