Not so picky about brands but should be comfy.

What kind of running do you do? Treadmill? Road? How often/far are your runs?
I've got a pair of Nike Free RN 2017s that I use at the gym, ~2-2.5 miles, 3x a week. I'm super happy with them. If you're not choosy about colour, you can get the 2018s on sale at Foot Locker.

I tend to look for deals at, like, Sport Chek, then cross reference with reviews on runrepeat.

Treadmill most of the time. The Free RN looks to be a good option. I will keep an eye on deals and also check runrepeat.com. Thx.

Go to a running store and get fitted for the right shoes. You don’t have to buy them there but at least you know what fits best.

I’ve always worn ASICS Nimbus myself.

Adidas have always been the best for me, but we're all different.

Yup, and Yup... Nimbus are the most padded running shoes on the market, so they're gonna be the comfiest. Problem is it does not exactly encourage good form, which could be a problem down the road if you do a ton of running. At my peak i was doing 25 miles a week(1 pair for treadmill, 1 for outdoor on sidewalk and track. I would mix it up over the week during summer) and never had any issues with them on either surface. I doubt you'll be able to find them for under $100 unless they're clearing out last years model tho. I nabbed my newest ones for $88 each when sportchek was only clearing out the grey ones 2 years ago(the other colours were $120).

Everyone will have different type of feet. It’s best to go for a fitting at a specialty shop, such as running free and running room. For sure, you don’t want to buy the wrong shoes in which you could injure yourself.

New balance is the only brand my feet has accustomed to. 880 series is the only model I have worn for the last 3 yrs. I buy this when they are on clearance or on sale (but sale cost still > $100 + taxes)

I almost bought a pair of Pegasuses ("Pegasi"...?) last week, but picked up a pair of Adidas Solardrives instead. Didn't like 'em at all; ran a bit small and felt very narrow. Sent them back, will probably pick up a pair of Pegasus 35s next time there's a good sale.

I always like Nike, they are the best for my feet.

Latest one is a pair of Nike Pegasus, not sure which model but I paid $149 from MEC a few years back. They were a bit pricey but I tried to get another pair from Nike factory outline but they just didn't feel the same.

Like others said, go to a store to try them out. I am not sure saving $40 and $50 is really worth it in this case as my running shoes usually last a couple of years.

I miss the days that Nike FREE runs were $50-70 at the Nike Outlets... you can barely find a pair under $100 now
