Here are a couple of places online where you can input your shoe requirements and get suggestions. One is at Runners World and one is Shoedog at Roadrunner Sports. There are probably more if you google "running shoe finder".

I have used both sites and the shoe suggestions have been very much the same. Both sites included the shoes that were recommended by my local running store, so their validity seems to hold up.

These sites will give you some suggestions, but I would still recommend finding a good running store to get evaluated and fitted by an experienced salesperson.

Hello! I have wide feet and am an UNDER pronator, meaning I turn my ankles outwards, wearing the outsides of my shoes. I have never spent real money on a pair of shoes in my life, but now I guess I'd better! I have hurt the distal portion of my right fibula and the proximal portion of my right 5th metatarsal - both of which suggest I need more support on the outside edges of my shoes and can't just buy whatever is on sale anymore. I've noticed many runner's shoes are made for neutral runners or OVER pronators.

Don't want to see a podiatrist... don't want to hear any negative talk right now while I'm on my high. Just want to get some new shoes! Thanks, guys!
