The main characteristic of neutral shoes is that they support a runner's natural run, providing him/her with a high level of comfort. With gel, foam or similar materials that are integrated into the sole, the damping cushions the affected joints, like the knee or the ankle, during every step. To this end many neutral shoes have damping in the heel and midfoot, as those are the main pressure points while running. For this purpose shoes of this kind are ideal for runners with normal running and rolling styles, as well as athletes who tend to towards supination, that is, putting their weight on the outer part of the foot

An example of a neutral shoe would be an adidas Ultra Boost.
