Best Running Shoes for Men With Flat Feet

If you have flat feet, you likely overpronate when you walk or run, which means your arches roll inward excessively after landing and can cause discomfort. For runners, it’s especially important to have the right shoes with optimal arch support. FN did the research and rounded up some of the best options on the market for men. Our list of select styles comes from well-respected running shoe brands like Asics, Saucony and Brooks. Each of our picks was designed to boost your performance on the pavement, track or treadmill and make you feel more confident.

1. Asics GT-2000 7 Running Shoes

Asics' GT-2000 7 running shoe has Dynamic Duomax technology, which combines two different density midsole materials to control overpronation.

Pros: Meanwhile, FlyteFoam Lyte and Gel Brand technology both provide ultra-lightweight cushioning and reduce shock. High-abrasion rubber outsoles deliver top-level durability. The upper integrates multidirectional stretch mesh and reinforcements that adapt to the foot. These come in over 10 colorways to choose from. They're also available in wide and extra-wide sizes.

Cons: They tend to run small and have a narrower toebox.

The Cohesion 10's heel Grid system and an injection-molded EVA midsole that offers stable cushioning.
