Want a motion-control running shoe, but donít want to lose the cushioning of a stability running sneaker? Try the Asics Gel Foundation. The Foundation, currently Asicsís sixth edition, is one of the companyís many motion control shoes. Built for the mild to severe over-pronator, it features a stability technology (in the form of a DuoMax medial post in this case) to ensure a controlled gait from heel to toe. Unlike many other motion-control shoes, the Asics Gel Foundation has a cushioning mechanism that ensures comfort throughout your stride.

The Foundationís cushioning system stands out from other motion-control shoes through a variety of features. Like many Asics running shoes, the Foundation features a GELģ Cushioning System and a SpEVAģ midsole to ensure a comfortable fit. The shoe also has a Personalized Heel Fit (PHF) memory foam that conforms to the runnerís foot over the course of its use.

The Foundation is geared to both male and female runners, and weighs in at a relatively light 12.4 and 10.1 ounces, respectively. Suggested retail prices run at about $90, but vary depending on location. For more information, take a look at our Asics reviews.
