Running Shoes - What's in your closet?

I recently purchased and went for my first run in a pair of titanium/black/lime ASICS Men's GEL-1170 running shoes and they are one of the best pairs I've ever had. They weigh ~ 1.5lbs (both) and provide great support. The price point is good as well, I paid $84 at my local DSW.

Mods: I wasn't sure if this should be gear or fitness. Please advise.

Nike Air Pegasus 28

I like them, as they are light and extremely comfortable, but they have some durability issues. Looking at getting into the minimalist craze as soon as my calves stabilize from the switch to mid-foot strike.

I bought a pair of those about a month ago and love them. I paid $84 as well at Academy. So far, I don't have anything negative to say about them.

Asics Gel Nimbus /13. For neutral footfall running. Been using Nimbus for >10y. Excellent support, comfortable, decent longevity.

A good running store will find the right kind of shoe for you, depending on your gait. It's pretty important to do this, as, for example, a person who over-pronates his/her feet would hate the Nimbus but might love the Kayano's.

Regards,
Danny

Saucony Hattori. Great shoes, in my opinion. Have been using them for a while (8-10 months) with no complaints. Good compromise between a traditional "running flat" and the "5 finger" type shoe.

After a few years of running, I finally broke down and went to a running store and had them fit me for "my" shoe. They watch you run, then give you a few options. Easily the best thing I ever did for my run. Brooks Adrenaline turned out to be my brand/style.

If you haven't done it yet, I definitely recommend having a pro fit you for the right one.

New Balance minimus and 3 pair of 5 fingers. I have really have taken a liking to the minimus. Had the Merrel trail gloves and I like the Minimus more...especially for anything over 5 miles...I am a huge fan of the 5 fingers as well, just not in extreme cold or inclimate weather...

Addidas Zero's. Tried to get a grey pair but all they had was this ridiculous electric blue with neon green stripes. Needless to say my daughter and gf are continually entertained with their own comments when I go running. Only 65 bucks too.

^ love these. I'd buy another pair right now if they had my size, especially for 50 bucks. The Nike Trainer SC 2010 was a very good shoe too, possibly even better.

Any neutral Mizuno, and I'm a big fan of their racing flats.

Not sure if everybody's heard of eastbay's discount/clearance site : www.final-score.com

Great place to grab all kinds of gear at solid prices. I don't run now, not supposed to with my fake hip, I do walk though and this site has some pretty good bargains.

same as slinger. new balance minimus and five fingers for decent running conditions. But out here with the gravel, a pair of minimus only lasted maybe 75 miles before the soles were eaten up, had to switch to some more rugged trail shoes. Also, enjoy working out in the five fingers, recently started wearing inji socks in them, a little different but I like it.

Adizero Feathers, 6.8 ounces apiece and it feels like I'm running in socks. Good support structure, which allows me to glide at a 7:30 pace and push it to 6:45 during speed training. A lot of reviews slam their durability, but I've been running with them since the beginning of December and haven't seen any significant wear and tear.

Highly recommend.
