BL I'd be interested to know how you get on.
I had a pair of Nike Perseus ( which I'm told is the forerunner to the Nike Span 5) - had no problems in these, went back to running shop, filmed on the treadmill and told I'm a neutral runner so advised to get cushioning shoe , so bought Saucony Progrid Triumph. Had previously been told that one of my feet slightly overpronates. I've run in these for about 3 weeks now gradually building up mileage and I'm still not sure. Have a few niggles in my left outer ankle and rt achilles when I first start out which I didn't have with Nike P, but there again I am building up mileage for FLM. Shoes feel great once I'm into the run but haven't run further than 8 miles in them as have used my Nike P for longer runs.
Went back to running shop today and bought Nike Span (Nike P's worn down). So I have between now and April 13 to decide which are the ones for me. Doing Blackpool Half on Sunday so will try out the Saucony's.

Brandon - if you're neutral you're likely to need one of the bigger cushioning shoes - all manufacturers have them in their ranges and a few have been mentioned above. Good examples are Asics Nimbus, Saucony Triumph, Mizuno Creation, Asics Adistar Cushion, Nike Vomero 2 etc.
All are intended for the same type of runner but can feel very different - Nike Vomero is very soft whereas Mizuno Creation is very firm and supportive for example. Best idea is to go to a good shop and try them and go for the ones you like best. Ideally go somewhere with video analysis as they'll be able to tell if you really are neutral and if the shoes suit you.

Got the Nike Span 5 + and wore them today, very comfy. Felt ok but then only did 2 miles for a stretch and test.
Will try out the Saucony Triumph tomorrow and in the week will wear each for 8-10 mile runs and report back further.
