    I have used Nike Free 5 before but ended up wearing them as gym shoes, did not like them as running shoes.

    Pretty loyal to New Balance. Currently 660s, but have had various models over the years.

    New Balance 993. Have worn these faithfully for about 5 years now. They just work well for me, so have not felt the need to try anything different.

    I picked up the nike lunarglide 4, usually don't like Nike's running shoes but these have been very kind to my low arches.

    Tried minimalist footwear before; I've always utilized a midfoot strike and I still damn near blew out my ankles on runs longer than 3 miles.

    I've got a pair of Lunar Glide 3's that were gaited for me, absolutely awful give me the worst calf cramps you can imagine - wore them three times, hell even walking in them hurts!

    Tend to stick to my trusty old Triax 13s, but really need a new pair.

    Can't believe a gait could be so wrong!

    New Balance Minimus - use them for everything. Gym, running, they also work well as boxing shoes as well !
