Nike LunarGlide+ The Best Running Mild Stability Shoe

Nike LunarGlide+
Unlike many traditional stability models, this shoe is built to correct your gait only when needed. You won't feel the extra support of the small, dense foam in its midsole unless your foot overpronates (rolls inward), so you get a surprisingly cushy run. Log miles without blisters, too, thanks to stretchy material by your big toe. "The support and bounce in these were the best," one tester says. "I'm training for my next marathon in them." ($100, nike.com)

Footnote: Most runners, like Jennifer Hornak, 37, overpronate a bit. But a touch of stability goes a long way to steady one's gait. "The Nike LunarGlides were so light, I thought I could run forever," says Jennifer, who does loops in East Coventry, Pennsylvania.
