Fore/midfoot running and supination

Owing to hypermobility and a wish to preserve my poor joints as much as possible I run fore/midfoot. It's coming up to the time when I need to buy more shoes; I currently run about 15 miles a week. The wear pattern on my current shoes shows significant supination, which I'm slightly surprised by (but maybe I shouldn't be).

I am looking to buy some shoes that have a low drop, but I don't know whether I should also look for shoes meant for supinators or whether I should stick to a neutral shoe as I have done previously. Does anybody else have this issue / have general advice?

    My two-penneth: Try on a variety of neutral low drop shoes and pick the most comfortable ones.

    Grab some Merrell Trail glove 4 solid shoes, Zero drop and very low amount of cushioning.

    You'll be running on mid foot 100% of the time. Get to 180 cadence but decrease stride when slowing down.

    If you want to go fast, increase stride by kicking backward.
