I have oasics at the moment which I like. Need new ones though. Anyone bought any recently? I need them just for the gym - don't run or anything.

I don't fall for any of the blurb.I just buy something not too expensive and fsairly comfy.

agree, if you're not running then go for something inexpensive and fits well. Asics are a good trainer

I like New Balance trainers. Got a pair for about £35 from one of those awful sports shops staffed by 15 year olds.

I've just replaced my running shoes, I run a lot and had asics which I got off the internet, they were fine until I started getting knee problems. A couple of days ago I went to a shop which has one of computerised running machines which can assess your running style and whether you need a more supportive running shoe. I was amazed by how much the very knowlegable staff were able to advise me. I ended up getting a pair (Brooks) which will give my overpronating feet more support. As soon as they did the assessment the chap knew exactly which make and model would suit me best.
