    I need to buy new tennis shoes. I can't seem to pick and we don't have any stores near here to try on so I'm going have to order online. What are your suggestions and do they run small or large. Are they good for running, sports, etc. How long did yours last? I'm open to all suggestions.

      I would try Eastbay.com. My mom bought me some and they are so comfortable. I recommend the Nike Shox or Air Max.

          Love my Adidas Supernova running shoes and I have two pairs to alternate. However, you should go to a sporting goods store to try them on since running shoes fit everyone differently.

          Check out Onlineshoes.com. They seem to have pretty good return/exchange policy.

              I used to be a die hard Nike gal.....until I tried Adidas. And since then there's just no turning back, I've even got FI to make the transition and now he only buys Nike's for the Jordans. If you're looking for something light-weight and comfortable, you can't go wrong with Adidas!!! Plus they've got some super cute styles ~ Finishline.com has some great deals

                I will have to go with the Nike Shox. I will never buy any other kind. The nike shox got me thru basic training (Army). I never had any problems with my with legs or anything and i'm not a runner. How long they last just depends on how much you wear them. I have had a couple of pairs for like three year, but the pair I workout (5 days a weelk) in normaly last about a year. And they are cute so that helps. These are my last pair i got
                Nike Shox Deliver - Women's - White/Pinke Fire/Metallic Silver . You can find them online at Eastbay footaction footlocker and lady footlocker and they all carry differnet ones

                new balance all the way! they can be expensive depending on where you find them, but they are comfy and sturdy at the same time. i usually get a new pair every year or so.

                they are true to size. i have always had trouble with nikes fit-wise, and i like adidas, but for regular old sneakers i like NB. ive just always been partial to them.

                  I have to say I love my adidas shoes (I have the supernova also) and it's not only because my FI works there and I get them for free! They are the best running shoes I've ever had. I used to have Nike Shox before we started dating and they always gave me blisters in my arches. I've had no issues with the adidas ones though! I say adidas all the way! :)

                    It def depends on what you plan on doing as far as physical activity, and your foot type. I have high arches and I find that Asics offer the best support and fit for me. Their Gel Nimbus line is awesome - so comfy and supportive; a really stable good shoe. I have a pair from 4 years ago that I still wear as street shoes - they have been through 2 college lacrosse seasons and still have plenty of wear.

                    I run outside in Nike Zoom Milers. These shoes are like bubble wrap for your feet! They're very comfy and squishy for running on a hard surface.

                    I would really suggest trying on shoes that you are going to do physical activity in before buying them. I recently bought a pair of Nike Air Pegasus and they are horrible!! Even just walking I feel pain jolting up my calves. Good luck!
