I pretty much have been dedicated to the Acsic GT Series but I was unpleased with the last model I got. It felt as if they had moved the cushion points on the sole so I moved to another "runner" brand shoe on recommendation of a friend (that use to run marathons and cross country). I bought some Brooks Adrenaline GTS

Explain.

Back when I used to run I wore NewBalances. They were the only running shoes I could find that fit my very wide feet. I still have a pair or two.

I can *almost* run again. Getting there. Right now when I try to run I look like a woman in high heels running from an axe murderer in a movie. But I'm getting stronger so maybe another 4-6 months I'll be at it again. Knee injuries suck.

Just if you run a lot you need to replace your shoes more often. I use to run 3+ miles 6 days a week back in college. 6 months intervals was the advice given to me by several distance runners in the area. When the cushion is gone in then your knees take the abuse. Asics have shoes in extra wide.

Top running shoes are from companies like:
Brooks
Asics
Saucony

they dont care about flash only about how to make good support. These new shoes I bought as so light. Lighter than my last few Asics GT series shoes. You can see my socks through the mesh because it is so thin.

find a real shoe store that specializes in running shoes. have them do a real fitting. the good stores will even let you take the un-purchased shoes for a jog around the block while you're there...

for example:
http://www.fleetfeet.com/storeprofile/27/

that place is the bomb.

I ended up at Run-Tex yesterday... I decided on the Mizuno's, pretty damn nice.

Actually, best option if you run almost daily is to have two pairs of shoes and alternate between the two. Studies have shown that after long distance runs (forget the tested milage) shoes need ~24 hours to regain their original impact absorbtion. Same reason you need to replace them every ~500 or so miles. Again, only for the serious long distance runner. YMMV.

The big manufacturers (Nike and Adidas) do produce excellent running shoes as well. They just cater to a larger market so you have to sort through a lot of crap to find what you are looking for. I've run track for teams sponsored by New Balance and Asics. They cater to more of a niche market and while they supplied great training and racing flats, their sprint spikes sucked donkey *****.

Anyway, like people have said, go to a specialty store and they'll put you in the right pair of shoes.
