The sole is really important.

Additionally the right shoe depends on your jogging habits.

Are you going jogging on the streets or in the forest?

I have a pair of Asics Gel-Cumulus 15 and I love love LOVE them! I agree with almost everyone else, go to a local running store and get fitted properly, and try on a few different brands and go with what works best with you. I tried on a pair of Saucony and a pair of Brooks, and while they were amazing, the Asics were my favorite.

I suggest going to a local running store. They are great at fitting your foot for the best shoe for you. I had no idea that I have flat and wide feet until I got my feet looked at. Asics are the best shoe for me. They over the support that I need. These individuals are trained and have machines that can watch your gate and the way you land on your foot. So find a local store and get your feet checked out.

Yep, get to a running store. The wrong shoes can lead to foot injuries and stress fractures (ask me how I know).

I've got an appointment at a running store next week. I need new shoes and am thinking I will probably stick with Asics Kayanos unless the sales girl can find a shoe that works better for me. I have high arches and I pronate slightly.

I like the adidas boost line. Looks good and extremely comfortable. The sole also doesnt flatten out as fast as the other brands.

The wrong shoes can cause knee, shin, back and general body pains as well as being just damn uncomfortable. There are also different kinds of support needed for trails or pavement or if you are racing you may want lighter shoes. All these things a specialist can help you with quickly. My local store is ran by a local running couple and they made me feel right at home and comfortable. They can give you a couple of brands to pick from and help you stay within in a budget.
I really real REALLY wish this was available in my area 😔

I agree with New Balance! Have been wearing them for years and they are the best running shoes.
