I've been in Asics GT-2000's for my last 3 pairs. I've got super narrow feet and they're the only ones I've found that fit comfortably...guessing you don't have the same issue but if you do...
im rockin Saucony ProGrid Virrata and Saucomy Kinvara-3
Nikes are so overrated its not even funny. Adidas Ultra Boost or Under Armour Speedform Fortis is the way to go. I prefer the UB out of the two but either is easily better than any Nike out right now. I have or tried on any running /walking shoe you can thing of from Brooks to Mizuno to Asics to Saucony to New Balance....You name it I have tried it on or own it. UA and Adidas Boost offer the best cushioning and comfort right now.
I've really become a fan of the Nike Free Hyperfeel...extremely lightweight, love the luneron cushioning.
The roshe runs are super comfortable to walk around in and not bad for quick runs but they don't have a ton of lateral support, awesome style though!
Yep, got the same and have nothing to brag about! Great insoles!
Sorbathane insoles - I have flat feet and they work well for sports.

I'd be really interested in who you went to, I'm in Los Angeles and I need inserts. I'm a distance runner and I haven't had any luck with store bought inserts, as my distances increase it has become more and more necessary.
Thanks in advance!
This. When I first got back into running I picked up a pair of new balance sneakers (some random runners not the casual ones) and I basically destroyed my knees. I couldn't run without my knees, ankles of calves hurting. I went to a running shop, they did an analysis (took 5 minutes) and they set me up with a pair of Nike Pegasus 28s. I've been running about 10-15 miles per week with little to no pain for almost a year.
The comfort has a lot to do with how the shoe is designed. Different strides, arches etc mean the cushioning and support are placed differently.
As far as everyday shoes go I've found the classic AirMaxs to be very tough (guessing the compound) and heavy, but they're cool so I still rock them. If I was on my feet all day I'd switch to a more modern running shoe.
totally depends on your foot type and your running style, etc. If you want something out of the box, hit up a good running specific store and have them fit you. Most will do a video or visual analysis and help you find the right shoe.
I have Mizuno Wave Inspires, but that's for the way that I run. Mizuno makes a ton of different types for different types of runners. Get analyzed. It will save you in the long run.
Another thing that most people don't realize is that you can't keep a pair of running shoes forever. They wear down and the rubber in them degrades. Anytime I run and start having shin pain, I know it's time for a new pair of shoes. And EVERY time that happens, a new pair fixes it.
