you will need to try them on as everyone foot structure is unique.

You can visit store such as runningfree (Markham) to try out a few brands and go from there. I buy my running shoes there all the time and the staff is fairly helpful in giving suggestion.

+1, another option is Running Room. They'll actually analyze your body movement to pick the shoes that work best for you.

I don't run a lot but I like Adidas and New Balance best. I like Nike the least.

I think you really need to feel out different brands but I also think you don't need to spend $200 for running shoes. Lots for $100 or less that do a great job.

I thought runners for running don't have ankle support?

i've run in nikes almost exclusively for like 6 years 5/6 times a week because they're cheap as hell at the outlets for the higher end models. like 200 dollar models marked down to 50-60 bucks
i just don't see those types of discounts for asics, saucony, NB or brooks. those are always between 90-150 dollars a pair

you'll like nikes if u run like me

-forefoot striker
-neutral gait
-wider in the forefoot

sometimes really good socks help a shoe that might not be the greatest in terms of cushioning maybe something to think about if ur cheap like me

I have #1 last year and still using it but not as often lately. It is okay, my current preference is New Balance 880V6.

On your list, Asics would be a good choice.

I run with NB Fresh Foam 1080 v6.

But really you should get custom insoles.

While i don't run very often, i do have flat feet and the Adidas UltraBoost ST are otherworldly comfortable.
