Agree with BG - main thing to know is what your running style is and therefore what category of shoe you need.
Once you know this all the brands have comparable models - pick the one that fits/feels best for you. As a heavier runner I tend to look at the higher end models as they tend to last longer and suit my weight better. Downside is they cost more, but you need to watch out with cheaper models as you may go through them quicker. Even with top end shoes (currently wearing Mizuno Creation 10) I replace them every 300 miles or so.

Avoid being reccomended shoes unless you have had a gait analysis as not all shoes suit all runners.
