Finding the right running shoe is important to be able to run strong and run injury free. Overproning (when the feet roll inwards) can cause severe pain and can really damage your foot, you ankle , your knees and limit your mobility. A pronator's outer soles wear down along the inside of the ball of the foot and they tend to have flat feet.Going to a specialty store to get advice is probably the best thing you can do. Usually they will get you on a treadmill and will ask you to walk or run barefoot. They will recommend usually 2 or 3 types of shoes. The makes of shoe are not important.

They will differ in firmness, meaning how the shoe will bend when you try to take the front of the shoe and try to touch the back. More Firmness equates to stability.

They will also differ in feel. Some shoes feel like they are not there at all, leaving your feet to feel the road. They usually are very light and are used for races. A training shoe is good when it is durable. Shoes with good cushioning hug your feet and prevent pain in long runs, they usually weight more and slow you down.

Running Shoe reviews are done from time to time in Runner's World. I would suggest picking up a copy once every season and having a look to see what's out there.

Paying between 85$ and 150$ is ok. Paying more than that is a bit expensive unless you really feel confortable in what you've got in your feet. Usually you can find something good for 85$, and if not , keep on shopping.

I wear Saucony's myself. They have mega support (I'm tall and lanky) and adequate cushioning. That said, my running partner can't stand them, he finds them not supportive enough and swears by Asics.
