Larger or heavier runners tend to wear through shoes quicker. They also need more cushioning and shock absorption to protect their joints and prevent injuries. And like all runners, comfort and stability are a must. 

That’s why ASICS makes a variety of running shoes that are consistently ranked by runners -both competitive and non competitive -as some of the best choices for heavier athletes. Take a look at our top choices.
