thought this would be interesting for you guys - Fitness Magazine's 2009 Sneaker guide, which picks the best shoes for walking and running:
Sole Search: The Best Walking, Running, and Hiking Shoes

We tested dozens of styles of sneakers to find the best walking, hiking, and running shoes for every workout. Find your perfect pair here.

We asked 67 women -- weekend walkers, seasoned runners and everyone in between -- to tread test more than 70 different styles of this season's walking, running and hiking shoes in quest of the perfect pairs.

Winner: Best Neutral-Cushioned Running Shoes
Brooks Ghost 2
These shoes have extra cushioning where it counts -- the forefoot -- thanks to tiny fluid packs in the padding for a bouncy push off and a safe landing, plus they're contoured to cradle your midfoot.
"Heaven for women with high arches!" says one tester who wore her pair pounding the pavement in Central Park. "They have the ideal amount of support without being too cushioned or clunky."

whole list is at the site! what are your favorite running shoes?
