Looking for a good pair of stability shoes to help with my pronation.
Any shoe recommendations?
Also, I am confused on Nike's Lunar series, I thought Lunar was all about light weight material. They offer many Lunar shoes in the stability category.

Hated the Lunar series. I am not sure if they are stability but try the Brooks Adrenaline or the Asics 2170's

I dislike the Lunar series as well and I was a long time Nike wearer. I've had a lot of success in recent years (well the last couple) with Brooks shoes and I'd recommend looking at the Adrenaline as well. I wear the Ghost or Defyance (both neutral) with an arch support for training and the Launch (lightweight neutral) for racing. I tried a stability shoe but found them too heavy (for me) and found that the neutral shoe worked better with an arch support. I don't use custom orthotics anymore just Powerstep inserts.

I think the Asics Paul is referring to has acutally changed to a new number now- 2200 now? Regardless, it is the 2000 series shoe. I have worn that series for 12 years now. I just bought my 1st pair of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS shoes and so far they have been fine. Not sure I like them as much as the ASICS but wanted to give them a try.

+1 on the Brooks Ghost. I've got about 1700 miles on my current pair, and they're still holding up.

I'm not as big a fan of the Adrenaline, though. They just seemed a bit stiff to me. Still, no issues as far as injury.
