    Vibrams... search for that term or "five fingers." Lots of discussion.

    I use Brooks Adrenaline GTS 9s or Nike Frees. I am going to get Five Fingers in the next couple of weeks though.

    Asics.

    Not too picky when it comes to running shoes.

    Depends. For Marathons I'll use Newtons. On training runs i'll use Asics or Nike Frees.

    Asics now. For a long time New Balance. No reason for switching other than that the Asics happened to be on sale when I was in Australia. I'd recommend either though.

    I had Mizunos once, they were very comfortable - really smushy - but they totally fell apart on me.

    I used to trail run once a week, pretty tough kinda conditions (Vietnam jungle running), and I bought the Mizunos that were recommended by the store for this. They lasted me a month. My New Balances would give me four months minimum.

    Don't do it any more, so can't speak for th Asics.

    Mizunos. Can't remember the model at the moment but I will admit it was a spontaneous purchase after my old shoes were killing me. Several months later, they have worked out great.
