I'm looking for a new pair of running shoes.

I'm currently wearing nike free 5.0s.
I used to wear asics and mizuno but ditched them for frees.
They are the best running shoes I've ever worn - light, durable, and comfortable.

The only concern here is that the arch support and cushioning aren't as good as those of mizuno and asics.

Does anyone have 4.0s? Do you like them better than the 5.0s?
Any recommendations?

I run 5-6 miles a day. Mostly on pavements.

I used to do track and feild for about 3 years.. For me Asics or new balance would do the trick for me..excellent shock absorbtion

Check out these new balance 2001-M2001BK

Also, what do you rely heavily on more? stability or cushioning? performance?

Performance, I guess.

Are there non-traditional running shoes like nike frees?

I wear the Nike 360s and I'm in love. They're a little on the heavy side, but the cushioning and comfort is the best I've felt in a running shoe.

Nike makes horrible running shoes IMO. Asics or New Balance all the way. I'm currently running in Asics Gel-DS Trainers. But it all really depends on your foot pronation and what type of running shoe type you prefer w/ more stability, cushioning, lightness, stiffness, etc.

asics are good shoes if you have flat feet. nike is pretty terrible i agre...it's ok if you are very "neutral" or whatever it is called from what i hear. i have flat feet so i like asics motion control joints

i was always a diehard nike fan for running until i went to a store that specializes in running shoes. they had me run around the store then actually had me run around the block while they watched me run. they told me i needed more stabilzation and suggested brooks. i've been using those ever since and love them. i get a new pair every 6 months. i run 10-15 miles a week.

Yea, I had NB's before and I liked those a lot but they didn't last that long. The insole ended up wearing out and they weren't nearly as comfortable.

I admit though, I don't run nearly as much as I used to, so the Nike's work good on da treadmill.

Nike are kings when it comes to basketball shoes, however they're a peice of shit when it comes to performance/stability for runners imo..

If by non-traditional you mean neutral runners then you COULD try the Saucony Triumph 4.. You want extreme cushioning then try these out..

You want performance then try the NB 1123's

They are lightweight and very cushioned thanks to the blown rubber outsole..

Im not into tennis much so correct me if im wrong, but wouldnt shoes that are lighter give you better perfomance on the court? You would want it to be lightweight to increase speed

My mom runs alot, used to use NB's but switched to Frees because she's a hypebeast. She tried the ones with the nike+ slot, but she fucked them up quick and went back to Frees.

i picked up a pair of puma complete connicinity, good price on them and the stabilty and support has been amazing to be honest. they are also incredibly light weight. the arch support has been pretty good as well and i have some what high arches.

i'm about to cop some asics gel kayano. i have less than 40% of the cartiledge in my left knee, so take it seriously when buying new sneakers for sport. i pronate, and have orthotics, and my podiatrist and physio both recommended the kayano specifically, and asics more generally as the best.

my knees, ankles and shins feel so much better during and after exercise due to the orthotics - my mechanics aren't even that bad, but the difference they make is phenomenal. i'd definitely recommend going and getting yourself checked out by a podiatrist - even if you don't need orthotics/extra support they'll recommend the shoes that will suit you best.

i did alot of research a few months back and picked up these asics gel-kinsei from a specialty running shop. Posted Image
i can't say enough good things about them. www.asicsamerica.com/kinsei/
use the store locator and get them from a local business if possible. they might be exclusive to indie running shops.

for any fellow flat footed, city-trail runner, i would recommend the nike structure triax +10. i've been wearing these guys since june, and haven't experienced any common knee or foot problems typically associated with long-distance running.

Asics Kayano and/or Nimbus.
Right now I'm rotating between Kayano XII and Nimbus 9.
I'm also wearing a Mueller jumpers knee strap and a Cho-Pat achilles strap, both on my left leg to help deal w/ knee and achilles pain.
Running is supposed to be good for you right? Ha ha.

herpsky, if you go to a running store, take your old shoes with you. they can tell by the wear if you need any adjustments.

If you are an overprotonator, like me and the majority of runners, and you want a shoe that give pretty decent support whle being reasonably lightweight, I like the Asic GT-2010. I've also had good results with the Brooks GTS Adrenaline and the Saucony Grid Stabil. Really, the best thing is to get a recommendation at a good running store though.
