good work-out shoes??

i am getting bored with my swimming, kick-boxing, and yoga routine and i'm ready to switch to some other forms of exercise. but i have never been shopping for a good pair of running shoes or cross-training shoes because i didn't need them with the above exercises. i wear a women's 10 narrow (or a men's 8 1/2) and i have high arches. any recommendations for what type of shoe to get? what brand? what store? what to look for in a shoe?

Can you find an independent locally-owned running shoe specialty store in your area? These folks really know their stuff. They can measure your feet, watch you walk in your stocking feet, look for over-pronation and other issues, and customize a recommendation for you. I spend less money when I get their advice. Otherwise I buy overly expensive shoes, not knowing what I really need and assuming a highly priced shoe would be a safe choice.

I don't know for your type of feet, but I have knee problems and still like to go jogging... I am strictly an AVIA girl and they work really well for me... very supportive and most importantly (for me) comfortable! Good luck with your shoe search.

See if your local library has the issue of Runner's World that has the shoe reviews - that usually has information on how to determine what sort of stride you have and what kind of shoe you need.

Running shoes:

New balance, 991. The gray ones. They are the BEST running shoe according to every runner I know. And me.
