A model that has stood the test of time for three decades, the Pegasus is available in narrow widths for both men and women. Built for neutral runners who display little to no pronation, this model offers a soft and springy ride. The upper features a midfoot saddle with mesh and no-sew overlays to ensure breathability and a superior fit, which will allow it to fully wrap around your feet.
If you’re looking for a long distance trail shoe, this model from Pearl Izumi may just be the ticket. While it doesn’t come in widths, it will be a favorite of harriers with slightly more narrow feet thanks to its use of a seamless upper and bonded technology for inherent built-in structure and stability. Weighing in at 9 ounces and sporting just a 4mm drop from heel to forefoot, the EM Trail N2 will give you a close-to-the-ground, lightweight feel.
If your feet are only somewhat narrow, try the regular Ghost 6 first. But if you experience significant side-to-side movement, look into the narrow widths, available in both the men’s and women’s versions. True to its name, the Ghost is a light and moderately cushioned neutral shoe that you’ll hardly realize you’re wearing. By removing the midfoot shank, they offer full ground contact from heel to toe, which makes for a responsive toe-off no matter what your speed.
One of the most popular running shoe models around, the GT-2000 2 comes in narrow widths for both men and women. If you’re looking for a moderate stability shoe for your miles, this may just be your go-to. Lighter weight and more comfortable than ever, this model employs Asics’ new FluidRide midsole, which ensures comfort, control and cushioning simultaneously. With both rearfoot and forefoot gel cushioning, the GT-2000 2 will work for both midfoot and heel strikers alike.
A sprite, lightweight neutral shoe, the Wave Rider 17 hits the mark for many narrow-footed runners. While the men’s version doesn’t come in a narrow width, the women’s does, so that’s something for the girls to check out if the regular size isn’t skinny enough. Employing Mizuno Wave technology for cushioning and control, along with Lateral Forefoot Sculpting for a smooth transition from touch down to toe-off, runners with narrow feet have long relied on the Rider.
A shoe built for both racing and training, the Adistar Boost does a nice job of shedding unnecessary bells and whistles to provide a lightweight, responsive ride. Thanks to its sock-like upper and sleek fit, this shoe will fit a variety of foot widths. Perhaps most exciting about this model is its use of Adidas’ Boost™ technology, which provides a soft and bouncy feel unrivaled by any of the other cushioning technologies currently on the market.
While most runners won’t be able to put in high mileage in these, the Free Flyknit+ are great for narrower feet. As a result of its flexible knit upper, it forms to just about any foot, hugging both the lateral and medial sides. If you don’t need support and you enjoy a lighter weight shoe, this is perfect for shorter, speedier training and racing.
