When I started Jillian Michaels Body Revolution, she wore KSwiss tubes.  That’s what I bought and I like them.

I wear Nike 5.0 and I LOVE them! I do crossfit, and the flatter sole works well. I have a different pair for running….I think they might be 4.0.

a good cross trainer will be your best bet to cover all your activities.

however, i recommend going to a shoe store like http://www.roadrunnersports.com/retail Locations all over the US

get fitted for a sneaker.  they put you on a treadmill and see how you run.  do you pronate? do you have flat feet? 

buy your first pair there. 

after you know what shoe you need, then you can buy them cheaper at end of year sales, at other stores that are less expensive, etc.

but start will a shoe that fits correctly, it makes a world of difference in the long run.

I wear a pair of Nike Free Run’s and love them! They are so light I honestly don’t feel like I’m wearing shoes, but give incredible support. Not to mention it’s a flatter sole so I am not stuck to one activity with them.

I’m running my first 5K later this month. Because the runners that I got to train for it have developed some nasty tearing inside, and because I have the flattest feet of the world and overpronate, I thought it would be a good idea to get some nice runners meant specifically for my type of feet. I got the Brooks Ariel first, but it was too much support, so I ended up with the Mizuno Wave Paradox (which also look a lot cooler than the Ariels, hahah).

I use the Nike Free Runs too.

They’re lightweight and offer great support. Although, I’ve heard a lot of people in my social circle don’t like them. It really depends on your foot and what you’re doing with them. I run and they’re perfect, some of my friends do aerobic classes, etc. and don’t like them.

I have small, wide, sensitive feet that are hard to fit. Nike’s are much too narrow for me (which sucks, because I would love to customize their Free Run with my favorite colors). Asics are a bit heavy for me, as are any Addidas shoes. 

I’ve worn Brooks in the past (more for trail runs than road runs) and one of my girlfriends loves them. I’m currently obsessed with the Saucony Kinvara 4 (in highlighter yellow, of course). They are wide enough for my fat little feet, have good arch and heel support, and are very light and bouncy. Most of my distance-runner friends wear Saucony, Nike, Brooks, or Hookas. I’m a runner/trail-runner so I tend to favor shoes that are lightweight, supportive, with a cushy toe-box for those crazy downhills.

I have nothing fancy pants the brand im using at the moment is reebok. Keep an eye out for sales and do crazy movements when trying them on. Wear a shoe that works well with what you plan on doing that day. My shoes for running dont go so great when I do things like zumba, the bottoms of my feet usually ends up on the side.

I have an older pair of Nike Air tennise shoes that I wear, they seem to work well and give me the support I like and need. I also do the Les Mills Body Pump classes and these work great for that, as well as general exercise. I tried running, not really a fan, and it could be because I didn’t invest in “running” shoes. I like a good, all around comfortable and steady tennis shoe.

I strongly recommend going to a reputable footwear place and getting fitted for an appropriate  shoe (based on how you move.)  I wear a neutral shoe (vs. barefoot or stability.)  I really like Brooks sneakers, but I just got a pair of Nike Free Knits that I really like (they are great for running/walking)

My Mizuno running shoes for running outside and classes, my Pearl Izumi bike shoes for bike rides, and I work out at home barefoot all the time. I used to to martial arts and it was barefeet and that’s how I feel most comfortable so whenever not in public, the shoes go away.

BurlapnLace:  Nike Pegasus fits me best – I’ve been buying the same pair over and over again for a decade. I run and do weight training.

I have two pairs of Altras. I wear the Altra Superior 1.5 when I go trail running or hiking in wet or very rocky conditions. I wear another pair if Altras that have a lot of cushion during road running or other exercising. Altras are great bc they are zero drop and they have a huge toe box. I tried wearing my Brooks after running in my Altras for a while, and my feet feel very constricted. I don’t think I can ever go back.
