RE: Stability vs Neutral running shoes?
A stability shoe supposedly corrects "overpronation" because the firm foam or plastic on the inside keeps you foot from rolling inward as much.

The idea that "overpronation" is bad and needs to be corrected is really unproven in a scientific way.

I agree with the advice that you should experiment and find what works for you and not wear shoes that are any heavier than necessary or that have added gadgets like firmer foam on the inside unless you find them more comfortable. You also shouldn't switch from one kind of shoe to a drastically different kind without some transition (lower miles or intermediate kind of shoe).
