Go to a store that specializes in athletic footwear, not just a mall store that sells shoes -not even a sports store in a mall. You want to be dealing with salespeople who are knowledgeble about their product.  Here in Vancouver it’s the Running Room.

The shoes will not necessarly cost more than those purchased elsewhere and you will be properly fitted.

Have you considered jsut re-buying what you know works for your feet?  Or were the shoes not well made?

I agree that if you have “picky” feet and want to change brands, by all means go to a specialty store.  I have pretty picky feet and stick with the same brand.

If you don’t want to go right to the store, I do sometimes online shop at say zappos.com since they offer free shipping both ways (and fast!).  I really like their reviews – it really helps me consider.

I know this is REALLY late, but have you tried a new balance outlet? I have somewhat small (size 6 1/2 – 7) and have bunyons so my feet are really wide.. I have never ever had a problem with new balance sneakers! (I also have high arches!)
