Mizuno Wave Inspire 8 $115

Try all you want—you just can’t over-pronate in the Mizuno Wave Inspire 8. From the moment you take your first step in it, you can feel the Double-Fan Wave sole design gently guiding your foot toward neutral alignment. Best of all, this support comes without over-construction and excess weight. At just 10.9 ounces in men’s size 9, the Wave Inspire 8 is lighter than most shoes that provide such stability.
