    Brooks Ghost for me.

    As far as getting fitted, I like to do the following:

    Before getting fitted, I will pick 2 or 3 shoe using a shoe finder. Runner's World usually has one.

    If the running store doesn't recommend one of those 2 or 3, I will do some additional research before taking their recommendation.

    Exciting to see all you Ghost runners! I run in them, along with the Hoka Cliftons and Hoka Speedgoats depending on terrain and distance. The other day at the WDW Marathon a runner pasted me saying that he liked my shoes. I was a bit out of it at the moment (it was on Army Man Hill) and it took me a moment to notice that he too was running in Ghosts, same version and color scheme. Not sure I got the words out or just thought them - but I wanted to say “awesone shoes”, probably just grunted.

    Do you overpronate when you run? I was looking at New Balance for overpronation shoes but wasn't sure which shoes I should get.

    I agree on getting fitted by a running store. If you've got the time and have multiple store options I'd suggest getting opinions at two different places. The more I've talked to the pros at running stores, some like to push certain brands too. I ended up caving to a guy that was really pushing Brooks even though I didn't think it was my favorite of the options I tried on. But I guess that's on me!

    I'd also add that it's good to be re-fitted after a year or two of consistent running. As I became more efficient my stride and gait changed slightly enough that I had different recommendations from one year to the next.
