insoles choice?

im starting to do alot more running around my neighborhood and my shoes arent that bad, but they arent that great. i was wondering if you guys preferred any type of insoles that are specifically made for running or something.

I'm no expert runner, but experience tells me that the solution is better shoes, not band-aid insoles.

What kind of running shoes are good... I've been running in my Nike Shox for years and its been fine until now.. I heard new balances are good running shoes, but I am not positive.

New Balance makes a good shoe (that's what mine are), but to do it right, you need to go to a running store and have them fit shoes to your feet. I'm regurgitating advice I didn't take, btw. I just went out and bought a fairly reasonably priced pair of NB's. (8507's) I don't have a particularly wide/narrow foot, or weird gait, so I took the cheap way out.

Haha thanks man, I'll probably hit up a shoe store to check some out and see how they feel this weekend then.
