The Best Running Shoes for Over-Pronation
The collective effect of excessive impact + over-pronation is likely the development of other painful foot conditions, like plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, metatarsalgia, joint and back pain. To help runners keep running, major shoe manufacturers have designed shoes for pronation. But the treatment they provide may be short-lived, leaving you looking for a more permanent shoe solution.
What Major Brands Offer
Over-pronation loads pressure to the arch-side of the foot and the big and middle toes. Repetitive stress on these areas can cause and/or exacerbate collapsed arches and the twisting and overstretching of connective tissues that result from the ankle rolling inward.
Running shoes for over-pronation are often dubbed “motion control” or “stability” shoes because they are designed to restrict inward movement of the foot, usually with:
- Substantial arch support
- Firm heel
- Plastic medial post
There are a number of problems with these foot pronation solutions. First, the materials used, particularly for arch supports, degrade quickly when exposed to heat and moisture. Second, the ability of these pronation correction elements to withstand excessive impact is usually theoretical (it’s never been tested). Third, although medial posts help, running shoes designed for pronation control may not provide sufficient rigid ligament support without after-market orthotics. After-market orthotics come with their own drawbacks, like cramping foot space and decreasing shoe comfort.
What Z-CoiL Delivers
- A spring-loaded heel that delivers significant impact reduction (up to 60% with every step)
- A customizable coil system that has three additional levels of support to the medial (inside) part of the shoe with a simple 90-, 180-, or 270-degree coil adjustment. The coil will correct even severe cases of pronation.
- A built-in orthotic that provides rigid ligament support
- Customizable arch support to comfortably fit your natural arch height
Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear are constructed of durable materials that last much longer than typical running shoes. And because the coil system is replaceable, you can get like-new impact reduction and pronation correction capacity without buying a new pair of shoes.
Most runners stop running within 10 years of running due to injury. The combination of hard surfaces, faulty footwear and added body weight is a recipe for high levels of body stress and injury. Z-CoiL Pain Relief Footwear is the right equipment to keep you running injury free for years. Don’t settle for anything less.
All Z-CoiL products come with a 30-day risk-free trial. If your shoes do not provide the foot pronation correction and pain relief you expected, we’ll take them back, no questions asked.
