Reebok Canton Road £49.99

Evaluation Pound for pound, Reebok is offering more stability than anyone else this year. January saw the release of the £60 Supreme Control DMXi, which is more stable than anything on the market. And while the £50 Canton Road is a shadow of the Supreme Control, it nevertheless provides more pronation control than any other £50 shoe.
Its half-length medial post, near-straight last, broad base and tough midfoot shank do what they’re designed to.
Of course, you tend to get what you pay for, and neither of these shoes is particularly sophisticated. Both shoes weigh a lot, and the Canton Road in particular is one of the heaviest models on the market. Still, it’s softer and more flexible in the forefoot than the Supreme Control, and it’s a good starting point for a heavyweight beginner.
In short If you want cheap stability, the Canton Road has it in wads. Its weight means that it’s only a big-runner option, however.
Try it if you liked Saucony GRID Stabil (£55); Reebok DMX6 MC (£75); Adidas Piedmont (£70)
