Luna and Unshoes sandals.

Probably not the answer you were looking for, though.

I had been running on netural shoes but by chance landed in Roadrunner shop. They checked my runner form and adviced stability shoes- Brooks abdernaline GTS 12 and that created lot of prblem with my running form and knees. I had to discard them and now again bought asics nimbus 14. Hope they will be right!!!

I wear New Balance 940s at the moment, but I'm hopefully going to get fitted for a new pair tomorrow. These were my first proper pair and I've put about 400 miles on them now. I've had no shin or joint problems since wearing them, unlike when I was wearing any old cheap pair of trainers.

I have tried them all, but I get flare ups with plantar fasciitis very easily if I choose the wrong shoe. So the two brands that agree with me are Asics (Trinoosa's) and Brooks (Pure Cadence). I'm in love with both and it's a tie! I wear the Brooks for 10K's and under & Asics for HM, full marathons, or tri's.

im lucky enough to have a new balance factory just a little drive up the road from me so i can get my shoes a little cheaper

i run in new balance minimus mr00 most of the time now but when i first started running in minimal shoes in march i was using minimus mr10s but they fell like high heals now

im up to 16 miles in them without injury but a lot slower then when i used to run i regular shoes

I also have brooks ghost5. They are the first shoe I've been fitted for. I tried on about 12 different shoes and ran in them all on the store treadmill and wound up buying the first shoes I tried on.

I just bought a pair of Brooks Ghost 5 and after my first run with them, I like them. They were so comfortable when I tried them on. I had worn my new Asics shopping that day and when I put the Asics back on I noticed a huge difference in feel between the 2 brands. The pr I was running in were Saucony. They were comfortable, but they didn't hold up very well.

Would agree in regard to getting your gait, arch, etc checked at a running store. My husband swears by Asics and I can't wear them because of the heel box. Everyone is different. I love Saucony's Kinvara for the road and Peregrine for trails. But that's just me.

I use Asics - tried several pair of Nikes and New Balance and they just didn't cut it for me. I plan to visit the running store to be "fitted" before my next purchase. One of the ladies in my runningclub did that and swears by it.

I run with Brooks. For my daily runs, I use Adrenalines. I Have a pair Cascadias for trail running, and a pair of PureConnect for races. The PureConnect are a regular width and the Adrenalines are wide, my measured size, but I like the feel of the tighter fit for race day. It has only been a problem once on a hot day; I guess my feet were swelling a little because it felt like my sock was folded. It wasn't so I put the shoe back on and finished the race. I also have a new pair of Ghost 5. I like those too.

I once got a pair of North Face shoes off the discount table at Charm City Run. One run and I had blisters on both arches. The became mowers immediately, an honor usually reserved for shoes with 300 miles running and 300 miles walking.

Roadrunner sports we site has a Shoe Dog feature that will provide you with some suggestions for your needs. Body size, mileage and gait all come into play in selecting the correct shoe.

I wear a Mizuno Wave Rider for long runs, and New Balance Minimums 730 for shorter, faster runs, but you might have different needs entirely.

If you can locate a running specialty store that would be your best place to start. The shoe store personnel are trained to analyze your gait and pronation and can recommend shoe models based on their findings.

I use New Balance W1540 shoes with an insert that cushions my meditarsals, due to my flat feet and over-pronation issues. I usually run 3-4 miles a day, 3 days a week, and so that works for me.
