Mizuno Wave Inspire 16
Mizuno fans with flat feet have steadily gravitated to the wave inspire series for its good balance of moderate stability and cushioning.
Overpronators, in particular, will find a lot to appreciate here – the Mizuno Wave Inspire 16’s midsole feature a denser, reshaped plate at the inner arch that is made to care for your foot if and when it rolls inner.
The new midsole is also flexible without losing the snap of the old model, which translates to smoother transactions.
Our single quibble is that the forefoot feels narrower than the old model, which could be a problem for those with wide feet.
SAUCONY Echelon 8
Runners with flat feet and low arches have had a lot of luck with the SAUCONY Echelon 8.
A natural sneaker with low arch support and a wider platform through the forefoot and midsole, the SAUCONY Echelon 8 gives plush cushioning and the durability to handle the extreme training and long miles.
Havier runners and runners who use orthotics have appreciated the shoe in particular – though its appeal is not limited to those groups.
Said one of our reviewers of the previous model, SAUCONY Echelon 7 seems like a tough sneaker that’ll last.

Brooks Beast 20
Runners who like soft cushioning in a heavy-duty distance sneaker have long been fans of the beast, Ariel.
The shoe has a wider platform with additional mid-foot support and some added stability functions, which many of our wider footed test users have appreciated.
It also adjusts on a straighter last, assisting some flat-footed persons in making more in touch with the midsole instead of the upper.
The overall weight of the Brooks Beast 20 shoe has been reduced, making this version the lightest Beast to date.
