Hey Genesis running shoes really depends on the person the gait of the foot when running and the arch support and cushion. I have flat wide feet so I favor running in a brooks running shoe but there are so many different kinds of shoes out there to buy. The best thing to do is to go to a running shoe shop. These places are GREAT they give you great tips for buying shoes, and they even let you test the shoes out for comfort. Most running shoe stores have running experts that give great advice and can answer lots of your questions. Good Luck on buying the right shoe. You should google some running stores to find one in your area I guarantee you won't regret it.
