Best Men's Running Shoes for Neutral Runners

By

Updated April 09, 2014

Getting the right running shoes for your foot type is one of the most important steps you can take to prevent running injuries and run comfortably. If you don't underpronate (your feet roll outward when you run) or overpronate (your feet roll inward when you run), then you're a neutral runner. You can wear running shoes made for neutral runners or those with slightly flat feet or high-arched feet. Don't buy running shoes that have a lot of stability or motion control -- you don't need it. Here are some recommended running shoes for men who are neutral runners.
