Cushioned shoes generally have the softest midsoles and the least added stability. They’re usually built on a semicurved or curved last to encourage foot motion, which is helpful for runners who have rigid, immobile feet ('underpronators').
You should buy these if: you’re an efficient runner whose feet don't roll inwards excessively ('overpronate') when you run. Runners with high arches often do best in cushioned shoes.Choosing a Shoe: The Very Basics | Interactive Shoe Finder
