Asics Gel Kayano 17. I bought them because they were 40% off at a sporting goods store that was going out of business. I like them so far, but they are pretty new and I don’t run long distances.

I have small, narrow feet with a slightly high arch and according to my SO, the running expert, I roll in with my right foot.

 Brooks Defyance. I have been wearing the same brand/model for the past 10 years! I started wearing them in high school for track, continued for college track and I buy them still when I train for triathlons or 5ks. I love them and they are great for my pronation and low arches. At about $110, they are the most expensive shoes I have EVER bought, but I love them 🙂

Defyance 6

Right now I have an old pair of Nikes that I purchased b/c they had the space for the running chip in them. They’re nice enough, and I like the mesh on them for breathability, but now that I’m kicking up my running I want to get some better quality “serious running” shoes, especially since the Nike+Running app on my phone gets rid of the need to buy specifically Nike shoes.

@bmo88:  My SO is a marathoner and he swears by Brooks! I think I’m going with Brooks next time I need shoes!

@bmo88:  this is the brand and model that i was recently fitted for. I’m a novice runner (like as of 3 weeks ago). So this whole world of running is new to me.

Asics GT-2170. A relatively new purchase, actually! I love them so far. I’ve had a history of nasty shin splints, and since switching to these, no problems at all.

I wear Brooks and they have been far and away the best running shoes yet 🙂

Vibram Five Fingers – trade out my sprints and my bikilas. They’re both awesome:)
