I love my running store...I have narrow feet w/a very high arch. Right now I have Brooks Ravenna; love them but I am due a new pair(most likely next week). The right, good pair of shoes actually feels like a glove as soon as you put them on and are run ready(not for a marathon, but for a light 2-3 mile run). If they don't feel perfect on the first wear, take 'em back...a good store will swap with no problems.
Happy Running!!!

It is ideal to get a pair for the way they fit and perform instead of looks and fashion.

Yes, well it's not a fashion contest. Good for you for getting a better pair.

I returned them and tried on several other brands. Although I didn't like the look of them, I ended up with a very comfortable pair of Asics.

You should definitely not be uncomfortable when you're wearing them. Although, I know mine kind of were because I have very high arches, so I got arch supports when I bought new shoes and it took a little bit to get used to, but it wasn't unbearable when I wore them for the first time.

I did a couple of shorter runs when I first got them to get my feet used to the better support, and haven't looked back since! I run in Asics because those seem to hold up better when I run outside.

I agree with Zorbs. Once you find the right shoes, you know.

My feet are actually pretty narrow which creates a problem not only with sneakers but all kinds of shoes.

Shoes are difficult to find for wide feet ... especially stylish ones!

I say return them..the right shoes feel like they were made for your feet.

If you haven't been running in running shoes, I think you should try the Nikes a little longer. Any new shoes can feel a little weird when you first start wearing them, and most running stores have a pretty liberal return policy, so that if you still don't like them after you've put a few miles on them (as long as you haven't trashed them :) ), you can return them. Especially if your old shoes were very broken in, they were really worn down and not supportive, so the new ones might feel overly "cushiony." Did you try on other shoes before choosing the Nikes?

I wear Brooks Ghost 5, but just because those are the ones that work best for me doesn't mean they'll be the best ones for you. :)

I had my feet sized tonight (high arch, lots of weight on my heels) and bought a pair of Nike Dual Fusion Runs and some Thorlo socks. Idk how I feel about the Nikes though. I had been running in Asics that are totally NOT running shoes.... I think they are all terrain. So I ran in the Nikes for a few minutes tonight and they feel really weird and weighty almost! Do you have this issue with new shoes? I'm so hesitant to wear them now but wonder if I would feel this way about another shoe also. My old ones are really broken in! ;) what kind of sneaker are you wearing?
