1. Asics Gel Kayano 16

It is still the top of the line when it comes to stability running shoes although its successor the Asics Gel Kayano 17 was already launched and now available in the market. Kayano 16 is completely packed with many of the Asics Gel features all providing comfort and steady run among its users.

When it comes to stability Asics always refers to Asics Gel Kayano 16. It is the finest, heavier and most secure version of the successful Asics GT 2150. Kayano 16 shoes are shoes with excellent support. They are not lightweight but they provide an overall feeling of comfort and this can be attributed to its great stability and high quality upper.

The Gender Specific Cushioning is one of its key factors and it is carried as well on the new Asics Gel Kayano 17 and an improved Gender differentiation on the upcoming Asics Gel Kayano 18 may be expected for the rest of 2011 when it comes out.

It is interesting that a lot of attention in adding stability factors has been given to the Nimbus. This makes it a recommendable shoe for moderate over pronators in alleviating them from their confinement from harder and lesser spongy shoes.

The most likely rival of the Nimbus 12 is the Nike Vomero. Both shoes deliver the softest cushioning in the market. You will find the Nimbus 12 less springy than Vomero but it provides more stability to wider range of runners that makes it more attractive than the other.

The Asics Gel Nimbus 12 is generally recommended for neutral runners and made it as one of the top running shoes this 2010. It is also fitted for moderate over pronators which comes as a surprise or suitable as well to neutral runners whose form worsens with the mileage.
