I need some new running shoes and I was wondering which ones you all would consider to be the most comfortable and durable.

All my track friends swear on brooks. Asics are supposed to be good too. All I know is, stay away from shox. Overpriced pieces of crap.

I have a pair of the Atoms Free 5.0. I think they are very comfortable but like everyone else I don't run in them. But they are a running shoe built for that purpose!smile

i have a pair of the original Shox R4. I love them, they are my workout sneakers and when I run i make sure I/m wearing them. I think they are the most comfortable sneaker I have ever bought.

I have heard that the 360s are real comfortable too. I just don't like their look, so I never bought a pair.

I run track and I agree Brooks and Asics are good as well as Saucony, if you want a real running shoe I would go with one of those. If you want more style get Air Max 95s but honestly never ran in a pair so I don't know how well they will stand up to real abuse.

Free 5.0 is incredibly comfy and they come in alot of different colors, but you might have to look around for them. Half of the damn shoe is a stretchy, suede-like material and it has a bendy sole thats good for running, but there's like..not as much traction as you'd see in an Airmax. Pretty cheap too btw, I got a pair for $20 at a nike outlet

[SIZE="3"]asics kayano[/SIZE] - Its like running gym on mats. Did a half-marathon in them- felt awesome. To me most serious runners usually go with Asics.

nike 360 are good until they pop

Check your foot style, arch? faltfoot?
Its more important to find one that fits you, Asics, Brooks, New Balance are the way to go IMO.

Nike free are good for training, The dont give that much support.

i disagree with the whole 360's popping thing as the intial ones were tested to run 40,000 miles no joke and no popping

as for a good running shoe i always recommend the free's just make sure ur transition into them is slow and dont go out and do 60 miles a week with them, because thats just asking for a problem but ease urself into them. eventually youll be able to run full time in them.
currently im on my 7th pair of frees, i've been using them since they first were released and im a pretty serious runner.

haha love my pair, so light but they r getting ripped up had them since they first dropped. I go between prestos and AM360's. You can get 360's for pretty cheap at footlocker depending on you location, i might snag a few black on blacks when the price drops cuz i wore mine out at work in only a few months.

For the best of both of worlds... i would opt for a pair of am90s... they are super comfy for running and basically goes with any fit.

^ no not in a million years, i did that last year with a pair of all black am90's for work, i do valet parking, horrible shoe for running, am95's look and perform better. AM90s will kill your feet if you do serious running in them.

you know, i dont think i have fully transitioned into mine just yet
i do notice that i feel more shock in the ankle and knee areas more that when i use to run in a different nike shoe

but is there anybody who has done some running/jogging in thier 360s

i heard NB are really good and foot doctors reccommend them.

i personally have a free trainer and be careful with these cuz they take awhile to get used to. With this shoe it puts more strain on your feet but in the end it makes your feet stronger. if you do decide to get any frees do short runs with them first then gradually increase. overall a great shoe if you can get past the breaking in period.

Hey I own a pair of New Balance M857ST. They are real light and good for running. Make sure to see what width size you are if you check them out.

i love nike but i dont recomen any of the air max series except for the 360's, and the 360's are really made for people with a larger frame so unless you weigh at least 160 i would stay away from them

New Balance 992s are some dope running shoes. It basically matters what type of running you are doing though (Trails, Road, Distance, Speed, etc.).

yea, when I mentioned brooks/asics I was assuming you were interested in a serious running shoe. Nike and the other brands are fine for casual shit, but if you are seriously looking for a good running shoe to work out in then i'd look at brooks/asics.
