Honestly, there are so many variations and differences of opinion that I really encourage you to go to a well-staffed sporting goods store like Sport Chalet and try on a lot of different types. What works for me might not work for you.

Definitely echo what Andrew said. Make sure you try them on, jump around a bit run around a bit. Make sure you think you're going to like them.

And just because I'm a huge fan of them, I'd look into the Vibram Five Fingers if you haven't. I absolutely love them.

Make sure you look for a shoe that works for the type of workout you'll be doing. If you're running, get a running shoe. If you're doing a program, BB or other, you should look for a trainer which will support impact and side to side motion. Arch support is important tooemoticon
