Review: The Brooks Beast 18 are support and stability running shoes designed for low to medium arches and over pronators. They are available in wide and EXTRA wide which is a hard to find width.

TOP 11 Best Women’s Running Shoes for Wide Feet 2019
Best for Marathons - Nike Women's Air Zoom Pegasus 35
Review: The Nike Pegasus line is one of my absolute favorite line of running shoes and I was thrilled to discover that the Air Zoom Pegasus 35 is available in wide.
The proprietary Air Zoom foam spans the entire midsole and has been fine-tuned for women’s feet. The air zoom is super responsive and does not add bulky weight.
Personally, I like the Pegasus 35 for long distance and marathon running because it is so light, the air zoom is so lively returning your energy and keeps you moving mile after mile, and the turned out collar means you will not chafe your Achilles tendon, even after 26.2 miles.
Pegasus running shoes will give you wings.
Flywire cables lock your foot in.
Air Zoom foam is bouncy and light.
Great for long distances.
Turned out collar does not chafe Achilles tendon.
A little pricy.
Light, lively and comfortable running shoes that will go the distance with you.
Best for Normal, Neutral Runners - Saucony Women's Ride ISO
Review: I chose the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080v8 shoes for runners who have bunions because the shoe is available in wide and extra wide widths and the toe box is roomy enough to make space for bunions without causing painful rubbing.
The 1080v8 is a neutral cushioned running shoe that is deep enough to contain an orthotic and has an Ortholite sock liner that adds arch support and an additional layer of plushness.
Available in wide and EXTRA wide.
A wide toe box, room for bunions.
Fresh foam midsole captures and disperses shock created by your foot strike.
A bit heavy.
A truly wide running shoe with enough room for bunions and abundant cushion for flat feet.
Best for Support and Stability - Asics Women's GT-2000 6
Review: The Asics GT-2000 6 is a stable support shoe with some serious structural features that keep your foot from rolling too far inward as your foot hits the pavement.
The trusstic guidance system in the sole and midsole of the shoe prevent overpronation and the guidance line midsole coupled with the heel clutching system encourage a natural stride and normal pronation.
Review: Switch things up! This minimalist style shoe from Inov-8 goes from road to trail with ease. The rugged outsole features smaller lugs that are appropriate for trail running, without being too large and clunky when you have smoother urban surfaces beneath your feet.
The shoe has a minimalist feel with just a little cushion provided by Inov-8s powerflow midsole technology that claims to be 10 percent better at dispersing shock, and 25 percent better at returning your energy back to your stride.
Review: The Bondi line from Hoka One One is the most padded shoe Hoka makes. It is great for runners suffering from plantars fasciitis because of the copious arch supporting cushion.
The shoe has a thick sole that is slightly beveled, allowing for a smooth heel transition. Hoka manages to keep the shoe lightweight by using a breathable mesh upper with a lightweight printed overlay.
