    Mizuno, Asics and Brooks are the best.

    However, Brooks and Mizuno make the ugliest shoes on earth.

    I've tried most, because my job involves a steady jog on concrete for 12 hours or so a day.

    Adidas Mega/Micro Bounce are good, but not near as cushioned as you'd expect.

    But my favorite:

    or

    But everyone's feet are different. And it also depends on what kind of running you'll be doing, also.

    I'd stick with the following brands though: Brooks, Mizuno, Asics, Saucony. Nike Frees are good for short distance running too, I hear.

    Yo, what's wrong with running in J's? Should I really invest in a solid pair of shoes for strictly running? I mean, my XX2's are the truth and I can wear em from the court right to the treadmill with no worries. Do running shoes make a huge difference?

    ^ I imagine running shoes might be alot lighter than a basketball sneaker

    I spent alot on the adidas megabounce, which are very comfortable, but not the greatest overall. I didnt know anything about running shoes when I bought them & wish I put the money towards a better running shoe. Also everytime I go to skip rope, the little rubber "bounce" grooves on the bottom catch on the jumprope, which constantly messes me up & gets me pissed to the point where I just run instead.

    I want some Asics

    Depends on how much you run. I can't run in basketball shoes off the court, because the soles are too thin. There's not much cushioning in the front/mid because in bball you need to be close to the floor. But a running shoe has more cushion and feels a hell of a lot better if you're running long distances.

    If you're only hitting the treadmill and your feet don't give you problems, I wouldn't sweat it though. Treadmills are a lot different than running on pavement.

    Does not matter. I mean it's not a fashion show or anything. Plus with you running around, nobody will be looking at your feet [teet]

    Most running shoes are ugly, and it seems the better the shoes, the uglier they get.

    I'm going Saucony Progrid Paramount here in a few weeks:

    New balance is good as well. Also, see about getting fitted for your shoes. And a walking analysis. Due to having sprained my right ankle in football or either from the home delivery job. I have developed the tendency to pronate my right foot. Meaning i turn my foot inward more putting more pressure on the outer edge of my right foot and which rolls the foot more. And I have slightly flat feet. meaning my arches haven't completely fallen. So, there not as fucked up as some people who do have completely fallen arches. Some shoes can compensate for whatever your tendencies are.
