Brooks if you’re going to actually run.

I find myself wearing Merrells most of the time. They offer a level of comfort and stability I haven’t found in any other shoe. They’re a bit heavy for running though.

Was at my podiatrist yesterday for my continuing problem with plantar fasciitis. She recommended Brooks Adrenaline.

Brooks Ghost 11's.

I love them. I recommend them and will buy them again.

Just returned a pair of Brooks Addiction to Zappos. China make too small chop-chop.

I run in New Balance 880v9 shoes, they are great. My last pair of 880v7 lasted over 750 miles of running before they started giving my feet issues. You have to make sure to buy their running specific shoes, they look very similar to their cheaper casual shoes.

Also for cheaper, Saucony has a cheaper model "cohesion" that was great for me for a while, probably ran 400-500 miles in them,

Some of the New Balance models are still made in the USA.

I think just one style now. It’s extremely ugly and expensive. I battle with myself every time I buy shoes. I want to buy them because I’m all about made in America. Just can’t do it. The shoes I buy are actually a little more expensive but very comfortable and durable. Guess I should try the NB made in USA shoes. I gave up on fashion long ago.

Brooks, Salomon, and Merrell for me.

Nike, New Balance, UA - all junk these days.

I was an Asics fan for a few years but my last pair was crap, and expensive to boot, so I moved on to Brooks. So far so good, really impressed with the comfort of them 4 months in

I would be hesitant go throw out any brand wholesale. Nike makes a bunch of crappy shoes that look like running shoes, but they also make a shoe that every single serious or professional marathoner wants to wear
Heck, even athletes sponsored by other shoe brands will risk their sponsorship by painting their Nikes too look like whatever shoe they are supposed to be wearing.

I've got bear paws for feet (very wide) and the only shoes that I wear have been New Balance 991's and they're made in the USA... Don't really recommend them for running as they're kinda heavy, but for me being a coach on my feet all day long, I haven't found anything better! Been wearing nothing but 991's for the past 10-15 years

I wear Nike Air Max running shoes. I have a few different pairs that I rotate through. Nike has a really good warranty that most people don't know about. They have a 2 year warranty on materials and workmanship. I have not used it on my shoes but have used the warranty on my youngest sons soccer cleats. He plays year round and they are usually starting to come apart after the first year. I just get in contact with them and they email me prepaid shipping label. They usually ask what the issue is and then its OK no problem. We buy the cleats online from Nike so they have the purchase on file. We ship them back and they give us a full refund to the card we used to purchase them. Then we turn around and purchase another pair. Comes in handy when your paying $300-$350 for a pair of cleats! Done this for last 3 yrs with no issues.

I currently use Asics ($60 or so from Academy) but I am getting more into running so I am going to eventually invest in a good pair of shoes. I have never been into distance running and I can only go about 2 miles currently but that is much better than when I started.

Shoe brand is such an individual thing. Nothing NIKE makes fits me. Same with Brooks. Adidias has been the 'go-to' for several years with athletic type shoes. Justin workboots do not fit at all. Woverines and H-H fit like a glove.

If you are walking for fitness purposes and distance is involved the best thiing you can do is go to one of the specialty stores and get a gait assessment. Run-On or Dallas Runnign Co. are 2 in the DFW area. Houston and Austin have several to choose from too. That narrows down which shoe manufacturers make the shoe(s) that would fit your type of gait pattern. These stores also have a wider selection of sizes/styles. It is also great info that carries over to other types of footwear.

For instance my left foot is a full size larger than my right. I have to fit my left for anything I wear. I also was fitted with an over the counter (OTC) orthotic for my work boots. I wear the same orthotic in all my shoes now - workout shoes, hunting boots, etc. Takes the guess work out of it and I know what to look for and can watch sales for those particular items.

I found a great deal online, actually at the Brooks online store of all places. I have a pair of Brooks Beast on the way. I hope that is the answer. I appreciate all the feedback!!
