Nike Air Max 360's , expensive, but it's like running on pillows. I've picked up 3 pair off ebay over the past year.

I have always been a fan of the New Balance 991. They are expensive, kinda heavy, and hot b/c they are mostly leather, but man they are solid, solid running shoes. I have run multiple races in mine from 5K's to full marathons.

If you're just running recreationally, I picked up a pair of $80 adidas on sale for $40, and ran 5 miles two or three nights a week for a few months, plus I walk all day at work in them. They're worn, and smell like shit, but held up pretty well, and were comfy while running.

I agree with everything you've said. The Bill Bowerman Nike series that are out right now are extremely comfortable for me (size 15) and they're so light I barely feel them on. However, one pair lasted me barely 3 months, thankfully the Nike Outlook store let me swap them out.

New Balance is pretty good for me too.

I wouldn't base your purchase of shoes on what other people like. The comfort and utility of a shoe is largely based on your unique build and what type of training you are doing. Go to a more professional running store (like Run-Tex) where someone can evaluate your foot, stride, and training type to recommend a proper shoe. Even if you don't buy from them, you can get recommended a shoe then purchase it somewhere cheaper.

I'm not a serious runner, but I picked up a pair of Reebox ???? a month or so ago. Very lightweight, comfortable, fits well (no blisters/hot spots) and so far, for 1 mile a day on a treadmill, they've worked well. I think they were under $75.

It's important to get the correct fit for YOU. Asics will sell a pair for most basic types of running, that will also correct for either overpronating or supinating. The also have multiple widths, arches, etc.

Saucony and brooks are both good shoes as well for running.

New balance is probably one of the best if not the best cross trainer.

Lastly, on the high end, I've heard great things about Newton Running shoes, but have never tried a pair myself.

The last thing you want to be running in is the Nike shox or similar type shoe.

Run four miles everday and the best shoes to run in i think are the air max 360s like someone stated above the best and cheapest place to get them is ebay. then get you a set of those gellin insoles from wal mart for the knees and back and that will last you for a while

lee - what is your body type, height, and weight? how many miles a week and what's your avg per mile pace?

Small guys can wear just about any expensive shoe and they will tell you it is awesome, but if you're a big guy or you overpronate a lot then you need specific shoes.

Example: When I was younger I was 185lb in high school and I wore Nike Pegasus. I would put in 40 miles a week or more and get over 400 miles out of them. Now I'm 225 and I couldn't even think about wearing them... I have 2 pair sitting in my garage that won't work for me. I overpronate and my long runs are getting higher each month (8 miles now), and the only shoe that works for me is the Brooks Beast or Adrenaline.

I bought a pair of Addidas running shoes at Sports Authority, and they've been the best shoe for me so far. I don't wear them anywhere but the gym or on the treadmill.

no reason to use your "running" shoes for daily wear.

Mine are SuperNova's they are light, and great shoes for me being 265 pounds. As I wear them out I'll probably go to Run On and get a gooood pair more suitable to my size, running ability, etc...

You're only as strong as you allow yourself to be...

if you go to run on! they will analyze your step for free and match you up with the pair of shoes that fits your stride type best.

X2 for Run-On! I broke down and went to the podiatrist (sp?) recently as I've had problems with my arch flattening out and some plantar fasciitis pain. Apparently, the pronation/overpronation (can't remember which one) was causing my arch to flatten. Run On has EXCELLENT sales staff that actually know what they're selling and what would be best for you. They'll make recommendations on what would be best for you, not what looks cool or what they're getting commissions on. Most of them are physical therapy students or something related on a professional level. I was very impressed.

$50 for a good pair of running shoes is a good deal.

Should have went to a running store and let them tell you what type of shoe you required.

My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)
