Asics Nimbus and good ol fashion get the job done New Balance 475! I wore NB in basic as well, just a good no frills shoe for just about anything normal people need to do. I am not an extremist athlete or shoe snob.

I wore Asics for the longest time until I developed Plantar fasciitis. Now I wear Brooks Ariel which have made a big difference.

Hoepoe -- I'm with you on the Nike zoom structure triax, I'm on my third pair and have nothing but good things to say about them.
It's amazing what a correct style of shoes will do, the knees thank me everyday for it.

Along with the Nike's the local running store has me trying a pair of Mizunos that offer arch support as well, along with more traction for the mud. (I mainly run CRP and fields).

Just bought a pair of Asic jels T333Q's and also a pair of Merrel "Barefoot" series. The Merrels are very comfortable but they look a little funny.

I'm a big fan of the New Balance MT101s...not sure if you can even find them anymore.

Added to the Nike (which i no longer use) Merrell Trail Glove http://www.merrell.com/US/en-US/Prod...un-Trail-Glove which i really enjoy - a complex transition but a different running world.

Ah, good job man. Just go slow, trust me on that. I started on the treadmill full barefoot. I'd run until it got uncomfortable, then put shoes on. Once I got VFF's, I continued doing this, until my mileage was sufficient to leave the regular shoes home. Then I simply worked on times.

100% - i've had them for several months now and was running a good 6 miler with no issues. I love them, why i used to "cushion" so much in the past is beyond me.

Good advice poison. I read a very recent study that spoke to this, but can't find it now. This older linked article covers some of the same ground however...

Reebok Nano 2.0's, Reebok CrossFit Oly shoes and Merrell Trail Gloves.

For those looking into minimalist shoes or barefoot running, take a look at the Pose running technique.
