He really needs to go to a shop and try some - you can't get that kind of advice from someone who's never met him, hasn't seen him run, can't see his style/gait/etc. What you will get here is people telling you about 'their' shoes, which might or might not be suitable for him.
He can look at: Adidas, Saucony, Mizuno, Inov-8, New Balance, Brooks or Asics. There are others, of course. Good luck!
