Need running shoe advice please

Hi All,

I currently use the BROOKS Radius R6 running shoe (i don't pronate, have wide, no/low-arch feet). I'm in the market for a new shoe - wondering if there are any ASICS comparables?

Thank you

I was always a Saucony guy but just switched to Asics and I love them... Definitely go to a running store and have them look at your gait and pick the right ones, but Im now all about the Asics. I have the Asics Gel-nimbus TN635

New Balance didn't give me shin splints (most of the others did.....arch issues and most running shoes weren't wide enough for my foot)

My advice? Buy two. A left... AND a right.

I really like my Asics, and I'm not even a runner. Just like the way they fit and feel.

I used to have a couple pairs of Nike Shox which I used exclusively for running. I recently switched over to ASICS and haven't looked back. Have a pair of the Gel Cumulus VIII and GT 2110s, love them.

I've bought my last 3 or 4 pairs of running shoes from running shoe stores and find them most helpful in finding the best pair for my feet and how I run. My current pair are Asics.

When I used to run regularly, I was also always a Saucony guy.

I am a New Balance (and Dunham boots) loyalist now, though, but I have never used their running shoes.
