On running trainers for longer distances


I'm training for a couple of half marathons and a marathon in Spring next year. I am an overpronator so I've tended to go with Asics Gel Kayanos as a stability shoe but am at the stage now where I want to work on speed and get some PBs in these races hopefully! 🙏 I do love the Asics Gel trainers for their stability and support but find them quite clunky/heavy to run in.

I was looking at possibly investing in a pair of On running trainers which seem to have good reviews for being lightweight and supportive but am wondering if anyone has any experience running half-marathon/marathon distances in them and can speak of their experience?

Or alternatively if anyone can recommend a long-distance running trainer that's great for overpronators but aren't heavy/slow you down?

Thanks :)
