    I dunno... I've been wary of New Balance ever since Nike bought them out

    I personally prefer Asics, and my feet are almost convex (they stick out).

    i've got severe flat feet, and would get pain in my shins really bad when running. No, it wasn't shin splints, either (I never ran that much).

    I got motion control shoes (Brooks Beast) and they make ALL the difference in the world. They were worth the extra $$ ~$130, since I've used them for the last 3 years, I've never had problems since.

    Don't go to a place like footlocker. You need to go to a professional running store where you can have a footstrike analysis to check for pronation and supination.

    I have a pair of New Balance M587NV and they work well. You could also just pick up some insoles that would compensate for the overpronation. I thought having flat feet was a disqualifier?
