    Nike Free. Very thin soles. It changed the way I run. In five miles my heels don't touch the ground, and I've eliminated all kinds of back and knee pain that I used to get from running. It's a slow transition, though, because your feet and calves aren't ready to run that way yet. You have to take it really easy (short distances) and work up to it.

    get fitted. if you are going to run a lot, get a good pair that compliment your feet and running style. find a local store that caters to runners and get a fitting. some places have demos and will either let you take them home or they have a treadmill onsite to test them out. there's nothing worse than an ill-fitting pair of shoes. hope that helps.

    OP needs something that will allow him to run from the cops. Just stop and take a stand with your 9mm. That's what a real man does.

    You can't go wrong with either Asics 360 Quantums or Adidas Boosts. Two of the most comfortable sneakers I've ever worn.

    Go to a local specialized running store
    They will assess your gait and make you run a little. Then they will find the shoe that is perfect for the way your heal touches the ground. I used to run seriously and if you want to start running and take care of your legs do this.
    Plus it doesn't cost anymore than say a foot locker or anything.

    Brand doesn't matter, I love Nike shoes but Adidas has a better style of running shoe for me and I love them
