Subject: Stability vs Neutral running shoes?
As an overpronater am I going to have problems running in a neutral running shoe? When I first started running I simply bought the cheapest pair of running shoes I could find, which happened to have been Saucony Pro Grid Guides.
I never paid attention to the name of the shoe, but since I liked them and they were relatively cheap, I bought multiple pairs of what I thought were all the same shoe.
Anyway, after a brief experiment with minimilist running shoes (I got them for free) that led to a mild csse of achilles tendonitis as well as the diagnosis that I'm an overpronater, I decided to return to what had always worked for me.
However, it looks like the only unused pair of Sauconys that I have are Rides (a neutral shoe) and not the guides that I had been running in. They look almost exactly the same and really don't feel that much different, but I'm a little worried that they are considered a neutral shoe and not a stability shoe. I went for a short run in them today and they felt ok, but if I'm going to be running 65-75 mpw, should I spring for a pair of stability shoes?
