Do you have flat feet? Do you pronate severely? Here are the two best shoes for you.

Mizuno Wave Alchemy 9 - People with flat feet or who are severe over pronators are often thought of as non agile. Well, it's kind of difficult to be agile when the shoes that you are suppose to wear are heavy and stiff as bricks. Well, this shoe helps break these barriers. At 11.7 ounces in men's size 9 and 9.2 ounces in women's size 7, the Wave Alchemy is the lightest shoe motion control shoe available for people with flat feet or who are severe over pronators. It has super strong arch support, yet a flexible forefoot. Fitting like a glove, the shoe moves very naturally with the athlete. Being a lighter shoe with a thin midsole, the shoe is ideal for midweight to lightweight athletes, and offers the best protection throughout middle and short distances.

ASICS Evolution 5 - While most manufacturers are trying to lighten up their shoes, ASICS is bucking the trend by making the Evolution beefier. The shoe weighs 14 ounces in men's size 9 and 11 ounces in women's size 7. Why so heavy? This shoe is tailored to the heavier or injury laden pronator, as it has tons of cushion and support. But unlike the traditional motion control shoe, it's not a tank. It's surprisingly very flexible in the fore foot and provides a very smooth heel to toe transition. The shoe is ideal for people with flat feet or who are severe over pronators, with heavier builds. Long distance runners with flat feet will also do well in this shoe.
