Peroneal Tendonitis is often caused by poor control of the hindfoot and midfoot. Alongside rehabilitation exercises, footwear plays a key role in resolving peroneal tendon pain. In this article, we discuss what makes the Asics GT-2000 the best-running shoe for Peroneal Tendonitis.

Best Running Shoes for Peroneal Tendonitis?

If you have a neutral or flat foot, a stability shoe is the best shoe for you if you have Peroneal Tendonitis. This helps to control the subtalar joint of the ankle, reducing the amount of load placed on the Peroneal tendons.

The key things to identify are if there is a stable midfoot as this helps to control the motion of the foot as it moves from midstance to push-off.  If there is enough flexibility in the toe box so the foot can move through the push-off phase easily. If the toe box is too rigid, it can lead to extra rotation in the forefoot, leading to extra strain on the peroneal tendons.

We recommend the Asics GT-2000 for running with Peroneal Tendonitis. It has adequate cushioning to absorb the impact of running on hard surfaces. It’s not too heavy at 238grams and it has a low stack height of 8mm to help lower the foot height at the contact phase of running.
