Asics Gel-Kayano 19 High-Performance Running Shoes - Women (Google Affiliate Ad)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE these shoes. I don't know what it is about the Asics Kayano's but, I found my first pair 2 years ago and I don't think I'll use any other kind! When I tried them on It made me feel like Cinderella, it just fit like a glass slipper. Like someone made them to fit my shoe specifically. I ran 1 marathon and 2 half marathons in these (including numerous weekly runs) and they lasted for a little over a year and 1/2. They really helped with my knee pain and gave me great ankle support.
It was worth the price and worth the wait of finding a great shoe!
