BEST SHOE EVER

excellent pronation correction and good amount of cushioning
Quite expensive - but you get what you pay for
I have had all sorts of problems with pronation in the past and have tried many shoe / orthotic combinations. I was having problems just prior to the marathon and gave up on my previous shoes and orthotics in favour of the Kayanos. The best decisino I have made

FANTASTIC TRAINER, VERY COMFY FIT AND PLUSH RIDE.

It has everything I could ask for in a trainer. Comfiest trainer I've tried to date and they just seem to keep going! Sale Price (Got mine for £85 I think).
Price (if you were unfortunate enough to pay the full RRP).
Slightly lacking in grip in wet conditions.
I got the bright Orange model (rather than the reddish one shown). I tried on a few shoes and just loved the feel of these... also like the Asics model below (can't remember if it's 2120's or 2100's for overpronation) but these just felt that little bit nicer so I treated myself despite the extra cost.

Whilst I said they're slightly lacking in grip in wet conditions, it's not really been a problem for me, but on speed sessions you can feel them 'squeak' a little as though they're struggling for grip in the wet. Can't say I've slipped over though and i'd still happily buy another pair! In saying that though i'm now looking into getting a pair of Gel Kayano XII's as a replacement; here's hoping they're as much of a success as the XII's!
