Running Shoe Advice

I’m on the search for some new running shoes. Here’s what I need: medium to high arch, good for back injuries, good for healed plantar fasciitis, no pronation or supination, and if possible – magic endurance. Here’s what the nice lady at Dick’s suggested:

They’ll spend their time on the treadmill at the Y, on the trails around town, and on the boot camp black top. My last shoes were a pair of The North Face trail runners, which took me from the trails at Umstead Park to the tropical Grand Cayman and Belizean rainforest … and all points in between. But they’re not available any more.

Any thoughts on these choices … or perhaps, other shoes to consider?

  1. Good luck in your quest for the perfect running shoe. I also had a quest after my two total knee replacements…….but for the perfect walking shoe. Took a lot of trying on and shopping around until I found my perfect shoe. Now on my fourth pair of Easy Spirit. Not too exciting sounding..I know.. but they are the bomb for me.
