  • Depends on your feet. I cannot wear Nike or anything else with arch support because they hurt. So I do well in New Balance even though some people would think that it's bad. Try on every pair in the store and see which ones feel best on your feet. Brand does not matter as much as ones that you think are comfortable and supportive for your feet.

  • Saucony's are recommended by a LOT of physical therapists...NIKES honestly are not good for running. I was a runner in high school and we were told NO Nikes....that's my suggestion :)

  • I like Asics. I also like some Nike's but they don't seem to hold up as well for me. I run about 8 to 10 miles a day so I go through running shoes pretty quickly.

  • Your best bet is to hit a running store, and have them watch you walk and run, and measure your feet. Everyone's different, and you want something specific for your gait, how your arch is, etc. it may not be cheap, but it's the best money you'll ever spend! I prefer Brooks, but I want to try Asics for my next pair.
