I've always been a fan of anything Brooks. All-in-all, I don't see shoes dropping any significant time from your runs. If you want to get faster, run faster. 300m repeats, all the way up to 800m repeats, balls to the wall effort, a couple times a week. Running long distance is not an efficient way to get faster, and doing it every day will likely be counterproductive. I do one long run a week, on saturdays, with two sprint days, and a tempo run (PFT distance, fastest pace you can maintain).

I do Tempo on monday, sprints wednesday and friday, and a long slow distance on saturday.
