My walking shoes are New Balance and my 2 pr of running shoes are Saucony and Asics. It is all about the feel and fit. I usually don't look at price either. I will pay alot for these shoes, but won't for reg. shoes.

For me there are only 1 choice and they are Brooks.

They fit the bill for me because they are non-leather, which as a vegan is important, also I have very wide feet, that are small and have a high arch. I also have arthritis, plantar faciitis and two bone spurs, so these work really well for me. They are wide and have a roomy toe box.

I manage to get them discounted from Sierra Traders online, otherwise they are 100 bucks a pair. Too pricey for me right now as not working.

I concur. I went to the local running store and ran in 6 different ones while being videotaped. I ended up liking the Adidas Supernova the best which suprised me as 5 years ago when I had done the same thing I ended up in New Balance.....shoes change and so do our bodies.

Brand doesn't matter. What matters is fit and comfort. You need to decide if you want to go with regular running shoes or minimalist. Then you need to find what shoes are best for your gait. Only after that will brand come into play, and even then it's a minor issue. Go to a running shoe store and have them analyze your gait, talk to them about your running/walking habits and try on every shoe in the store if necessary to find a pair that feels comfortable the second you put it on and try it out. If it's not comfortable immediately, it WON'T get better with time.
