What Running Shoes are you wearing?

I had my gait analyzed at a local(only) specific runners store, he brought out: Mizuno Wave Rider, NB 1224 and Brooks Glycerin. I know I have flat feet. In the past I always wore Nike Pegasus, I tried different shoes, but always came back to the Pegasus. Just wondering what running shoes you're wearing.

Hmm...seems odd that he brought out the NB 1224's...since that is a moderate stability shoe (and an older version at that...they're now up to the 1226 version), while the 2 other shoes (Wave Rider & Glycerin) are both neutral cushioning shoes.

I personally, wear the Nike Free Run+...it's the only shoe I have found that does not squish my hammertoes. The material just seems to give a bit more than other shoes.

Yeah, that is odd. Especially since I believe NB has a neutral shoe for flatter-footed runners.

I am currently in the Nike Run Avant+ and Lunarfly+ (essentially the same shoe with different uppers). My favorite shoe ever was the NB 902. I wear Superfeet Berry in all of my running shoes.

I just had a gait analysis done yesterday and ended up walking out with the Brooks Glycerin. I'm on week 3 (should be on week 4 but I've been combating plantar fasciitis pain) of the Couch to 5k program.

I have VERY flat feet, but I have a neutral stride. I used them this morning on my run and they were great! No pain, but I'm also doing stretching and massaging throughout the day.

I wear New Balance 101s (quasi-minimal trail shoes) and an old pair of sauconys that I don't really like, but don't hurt at the distance I'm running.

I overpronate walking and standing still but motion control/stability+ shoes don't do much for a midfoot strike.

Asics gel evolution 5.

Vey flat footed, extreme pronation, maximum stability control.

The shoes have actually allowed me to take up the sport, as previosly, I could not run more than down the street without pain (well, MORE pain! ).

I suspect the toe box is a bit too roomy for me, and I'm hoping to try the Brooks motion control shoes next (Ariel or Stabil, I think).

I'm on my 4th pair of Asics Gel Kayano's. I'm thinking of switching brands on my next pair but don't know what to.

I have accessory navicular syndrome that causes extreme pronation and just had custom orthotics built. The man that made them told me that it's good for your feet to wear different running shoes and switch back and forth on different days. Don't know if that's true or not. I also read that if you have orthotics, you shouldn't wear them in stability shoes because you have double-dosed the stability. I get confused and at around $100 a pair, I just don't want to make a mistake.

Interesting. I had wondered about that. I wear my custom orthotics in my running shoes. The guy at the LRS was ambivalent about it - said if it helped, go for it....or go without them, if that worked, too. Now that I have ~100 miles on the shoe, I'm hesitant to take them out....

Hijack off.
