Top 5 Running Shoes for Women with Overpronation and Plantar Fasciitis in 2023
Plantar fasciitis and overpronation can be a real pain for runners, and finding the right pair of shoes can make all the difference. With so many options on the market, it can be tough to know where to start. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of the best running shoes for women who overpronate or suffer from plantar fasciitis.
Be aware, strengthening your foot muscles or correcting your upper body biomechanics can cause a change in your pronation status so it’s worth checking regularly at home or with a gait analysis to make sure your neutral stance has not changed since your last assessment.
