Re: Running shoes advice

agree with the above my additional tips would be

DO go to a proper running shoe shop rather than buy on the web so that you get to try them out in your own time. Sorry I haven't found one here yet
Each brand has slightly different fittings and their models are designed for varied foot types and activities. Try on different brands as well as models. What suits your mate best might not fit you...
Think before buying last years model - this isn't a fashion thing but running shoes deteriorate if stored for too long
If you can afford it, have 2 pairs on the go at the same time - one slightly older than the other - and alternate them (in pairs - obviously). It's easier to spot when they are wearing out rather than getting accustomed to having no bounce.

Finally - I have to admit - colour isn't an important factor
