Best running shoes for underpronation

    My daughter has aspirations of becoming a jogger but is picking up a few calf/Achilles niggles.

    Given that sports shops are closed for the foreseeable I got her to do the footprint test and it transpires that she has a serious under pronation going on!

    Any suggestions as to the best type of runners for this? She probably won’t go over 10k but is running 3 or 4 times a week. (That’s more than I ever did :D )

    I’ll work on form etc but want to get the footwear right too.

    Thanks

    What runners is she currently wearing?

    The "right" runner for her is the one the feels the most comfortable in.
    By your "serious under pronation" comment I assume you mean she has a high arch, going by the" foot print test"
    Unfortunately as you say, most shops are only doing online sales at the moment, so it would be impossible to try on a few pairs.
    My advice would be to get some "neutral" shoes as to specific brands, its very hard to say because everyone will be different in what the like.
    Saucony Endorphin range are getting great reviews, others like Nike epic react miler, pegasus and infinity, or New Balance 1080 all would be good cushioned shoe.
