Subject: RE: Is there a positive correlation between overpronation and not being a fast runner?
It is important to remember a big chunk of running shoes, like say the 21xx, are not exclusively geared toward the crowd that frequents letsrun. They are targeting that Runners World, middle aged woman, with probably a few extra pounds, demographic.
A good chunk of the "fast" runners probably have stronger core muscles etc than most of these middle aged women. Thus, they can probably get away with a neutral shoe even if it was proven they overpronate and the shoe helps it.
Weight just magnifies everything. So the person who could stand to lose a few pounds, is only going to run 2-3 times a week, but still wants to run a half marathon generally is helped by a stability shoe. Maybe not always, but think about how many hobby joggers there are at every road race you go to.
I don't mean everything I said above in absolutes, just as broad generalizations.
