Please keep political and personal feelings about a brand out. I used to wear Saucony and then swtiched to Skechers with memory foam for the last couple of years. What I hate about shoe manufactures is that you find a certain shoe model and it is great. Then, a few months later it has been discontinued. That is what happened with my Skechers. Being on my feet for 12 hours at a time. Comfort is #1. But I am a cheap ass and I go through tennies about every 4-6 months so I don't want to spend a fortune. I quit wearing Saucony because I got two pair in a row that started to split and fall apart early. But now I'm back in Saucony giving them another try. My feet are hurting in my latest Skechers. Most nurses I know wear Brooks and now Hoka is started to be more popular. What I like about Saucony is the box (toes) is a little wider--Saucony is recommended by one of the podiatrist's here as a good shoe for bunions/feet problems. I don't have bunions (yet) thankfully. I bought two different Saucony shoes and they both feel great. One of my friends just got a pair of the new Nikes with the beads. Your foot is floating on a bunch of foam beads -- called the Joy Ride. She loves them but they are $130+. I try to keep my price down to $50 or less -- I mentioned I was cheap. But I am really hard on my shoes so I prefer not to pay a fortune. I got both pairs of my Sauconys for about $65 total. I ordered them from their website. I'm considering the Nike Joy Ride if my Sauconys don't work out. The last time I tried on several different brands at the same store I did not like the fit of Nike, Asics, Adidas, Pumas etc. My husband will wear only New Balance and one particular model. It must be an oldie and a goody because his shoe has not been discontinued. Oh and compressions socks are a must. I went through a few different brands and found a great sock on Amazon. 8 pair for $12.99 - they are fugly but they are great. Not a name brand but got better reviews than Mojo and I agree.
