What Is Your Favorite Running Sneaker?

Most of us are pretty particular about our footwear and running sneakers are no exception. Some women are pretty particular about the brand of sneaker they wear when exercising. Whether you choose because of the style, fit, comfort, activity level, or price, nothing beats a great pairs of kicks.

Since I am going to be asking about many of your favorite things, I really want to know. . .

I love my New Balance, but I know some other people who have had problems with them. In the end, I voted for Nike. My Nike Shox are, by far, the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn! I love them!

Brooks are the true running shoes! I tried Ryka but they just gave me bad shin-splints.

Asics Equation, best shoe ever for my feet. There are very few options for us suppinators (under pronators)and these really fit the bill. I also have the dancer bunions and these shoes got me thru my first marathon. Super cushiony, snug heels, amazing shoes.

I love my new pair of asics, they're white and pink and silver details and my feet pain when running and stuff hasn't been as bad!

Nikes are the only ones narrow enough for my feet. New balance and Adidas are way too wide for my feet. My Nikes have held up forever, too.

New Balance.I recently went looking to upgrade to a newer pair of New Balance. The shoe section employee explicitly told me that that's the brand he <i>always</i> reccommends when people ask for suggestions. We totally had a fanboy/girl gush about how well they hold up, the forms and fitting and body impact. This wasn't even the first time a shoe salesman has gushed about New Balance with me, it's happened quite a few times!

New Balance, New Balance, New Balance.They make a wide toe box, which is sooooo comfortable. As well, I'm a terrible over pronator--my knees and feet roll inward. It's an awful problem and it causes a lot of unnecessary knee pain. New Balance, I've found, makes the best shoe to prevent and correct for overpronation.

Spira makes the best running shoes ever!!! They have springs embedded in the shoes to absorb some of the shock from your knees and joints. They are currently banned from being used in professional athltetic events because they supposedly give the runner an unfair advantage. They're working towards getting that banned removed, which I believe to be a bit unfair.They truly are amazing, though. I'm an outside jogger and have had no knee complaints since I've worn these. I LOVE ME SOME SPIRA SHOES!!!

Another Adidas Supernova fan. My last pair needed replacing and I was thrilled to find a pair last month, 60% off - early Christmas gift to myself!

I know Nike is evil and yet... I can't live without my Air Pegasus! They're the only shoe that doesn't screw up my knees or give me a headache. Plus, they're pretty!
