I'm a thirty mile a week runner who runs mostly on mountain trails. I have a slight pronation. This running shoe selector correctly picked the brand that I actually own which was professionally recommended by an elite marathoner and running shoe store employee. Buy your shoes where you like, but take advantage of Ben's helpful decision maker first. -Editor SelectSmart.com Items from Amazon.com you might like.
