What is the difference between cushioning, stability, and motion control in running shoes?
Cushioning shoes are just that – cushioning. They take away pressure, on the heel and the front part of the foot. Stability and Motion Control and pretty much the same thing – probably just different shoe companies using different terms for the same thing. Both hold the foot in in a more fixed position. These shoes are good for people who are severe pronators, or those who have tendonitis or flatter feet. A flat foot is more flexible, so it benefits from the motion control.
