Hi Recovery Runner,
I am unable to email you direct so i hope you read this,and anyone else who can chip in!!
The nike air moto is classed as a support shoe but i see that you have used it even though you tend to run in cushioning shoes.
I am a little bow legged and tend to run more on the uotside of my feet but have a normal foot print. I was wondering if the moto would be any good for me as i only run in cushioning shoes.
It looks like you have tried just about all the top brands so might have an insight on them.
I run in nike vomero at the moment but am not 100% happy with them.

Didn't know the Moto was classified as a support shoe - it isn't one, i.e. it doesn't have any added stability features like a dual density midsole etc. Nike do a number of stability shoes but the Moto is neutral, although it's pretty stable for a neutral shoe.
Don't know if it would be good for you or not - try it and see how it feels is the only real way. Ideally do it at a running shop that can watch you run/use video to check how you run with them.
The other thing I'd say about the Moto is it's better for heavier runners (of which I am one....) - it uses a polyurethane heel which is very durable and gives a nice 'ping' to the cushioning, but can be firm if you're lighter weight.
Thanks for reminding me about my shoe addiction - I've been running a long time but you're right - I have worked my way through most brands ! Other shoes you might want to look at are the Mizuno Creation 10 (what I'm currently wearing - fantastic, but again suited more for heavier runners), Asics Nimbus/Cumulus, Mizuno Rider (similar to Creation but for lighter runners), Saucony Triumph etc.
Good luck finding the right pair - it's an expensive business !
