    I don't care about cost, but I have a high arch, so I need something that will accomodate that. Any suggestions? BTW, these will only be used for running, nothing else.

    Go to a specialty store

    Usually they'll have you try on about 4 to 5 different types of shoes. Jog in them outside a bit.

    for example: right foot- Adidas, left foot Nike go jog a bit outside a bit and see which one feels best and then narrow it down from there.

    edit- I use Adidas Supernova Control, but my arch isn't that high.

    yeah there are many running stores that will do a gait and foot analysis for free.

    DING! I am partial to New Balance 587s. Maximum motion control and shock absorption. Especially for behemoth runners like me.

    I may step up to the 991s once I wear my 587s out.
