Asics, Keyano or Kinesi, great shoe, light weight yet durable and good cushioning

Go to a local running shop and have them help you find the best shoe for your foot. The best shoe is going to be different for everyone.

i have nike Cog shox, and love them. i wear them as my everyday shoe, along with when i run. they;re about 75 dollars, and are the softest feeling shoe i;ve ever tried on. and i;ve tried the air 180 and 360's, along with different regular running shoes. they are the best, IMHO

a good solid pair of Asics are great for training, and they are moderatly priced too.
