Some people buy any brand of runners, some people will buy the cheapest brand, whereas others will stick to a particular brand.

Do you buy any brand, or do you prefer a particular brand, and if so, which one?

I generally buy Nike -I have tried several others but have a problem with most of them apart from Nike.

I have had to buy these for years now as walk twice a day and cannot have ill fitting shoes.

Any that are comfy and fit me well.
I usually buy any expensive brand but only in a sale
Nike is my preferred brand - I don't know why

I prefer Nike or Adidas, but I get them off Groupon/OurDeal/other similar websites when they're at a more affordable rate :)
I like Sketchers, but I would buy any pair of running shoes that are comfortable and fit well.
Having a wide foot, I go for comfort above style when it comes to shoes. So the shoe has to fit well and be comfortable to walk in. I have to buy brands because cheaper shoes don't provide this for me.
I have very wide feet as well and find that New Balance runners are the best for people with wide feet. They're super comfortable and you can pick them up on special pretty regularly.

No not a brand name snob in this regard....and find these days the cheaper brands are a lot better made and suit me fine, only wear for walking, never out - prefer a more feminine look generally......

Gosh I must be an odd person!!! I do not own any runners at all!!! I wear Orthoheel or similar types of well-designed footwear with excellent arch support as well as general support in other often neglected areas!! I do know that there are some very good runners out there now with all these attributes, so if I was to wear them,I would definitely go for a shoe with comfort due to excellent design! I was raised to believe that if our feet hurt,then the rest of us will also be in pain! We always had the best quality that my parents could afford,and back then,there was always someone called a 'fitter' who would check our feet with a special metal scale thingummy which then gave the information needed to find the correct shoe for the foot! I have not seen these for many years,though I expect they are still used in the higher quality shoe stores!
I prefer buying Brooks because they're better for my feet. Apparently.
I prefer New Balance. Found a great place in Dandenong where you can buy most brands at really good prices. It is called PAULS Warehouse.
If I have to buy this type of shoe, which is my preferred type to wear, daily, due foot problems, as they very comfy & supportive, I go to 'Athlete's Foot' & buy best for my needs.

The cost is irrelevant, as they last for years, & what price the ability to be able to walk?
I buy New Balance because I wear orthotics for normal wear. My Podiatrist recommended this brand because my feet are also wide. I found with other well known brands like Nike, they weren't wide enough, nor were the Reeboks I've only worn once so cheaper ones are out of the question. I went to Athlete's Foot for a professional electronic fitting and bought the style recommended on the basis of the results. I can honestly say this is the first time I've ever been able to wear any type of runners and not suffer badly from blisters and callouses. They weren't cheap but comfort wise they are well worth it.
My son only buys them, and he has a size 15 shoe , so he has to pay thru the roof!..He says that it is well worth the extra money for a pair of ''Merrell'' runners.
I do a lot of walking for exercise (6-10 km daily) and own several pairs of runners. I don't go for any particular brand - as long as they are comfy for walking that suits me.
Should add all the runners I have are in bright colours. Don't go for the dull colours. Like Fran am not a snob with brands.

No, I just go for very plain white. I've never liked coloured joggers. When the place I used to buy them from, sold their local shop, I found all white ones in Sketchers, & bought 3 pairs at once, after trying on 1pr. I'm now into my 2nd pr! Next time I need to buy another 1 or 2 pairs, I'd love ones that don't need laces, but still hold my feet well. I don't do any running, only walking.
