How to choose a shoe?

Is there a FAQ (frequently asked questions) on the net or some guide
that will help me in choosing which brand and model of running shoe to
buy as I have never bought a specialized shoe for running. The stores
only carry a narrow range and I wonder if I can trust their suggestions.

I am 5'9" and 160 pounds and run about 10 miles a week for exercise
only, not for competition. So my only concern is a shoe that reduces
stress and vibrations on the feet, that way my feet will last forever,
it doesn't matter if the shoe slows me down.
Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Try this Team Oregon site for an overview of "foot type" and
appropriate shoes for the different types:

Hi Lynton,
There is a new product on market today that active people like you need
to know about.
IRIS-PRO Inflatable Replaceable Insert for Shoe with miniature pump and
relief valve built-in, underneath arch pillow, so you can adjust air
pressure according your weight and your activities, such as: Standing,
Walking, Hiking, Running, Sports, etc. Professional / active runners
should consider protecting their feet/joints/knee with IRIS-PRO
inserts, as well as improving race time. By adding extra air pressure
for running it really propels runners forward.
For more information visit: www.IRIS-PRO.com

This sounds a lot like an adverti***t. Keep that in mind while reading it.

This is not an adverti***t, but rather a disclaimer I try to add to all
of my posts in this newsgroup. I make money hourly (not on comission), so
it does not make a difference to me if you come into my store or not. I
would, however, rather everyone know where I am coming from (unlike the
poster for the insoles).

Just read any posts in this newsgroup from me.

And, just to show that it is not adverti***t, there is a typo in the
above URL, meaning that no one could use it...

The same goal could be accomplished without putting the link in every
message you post.  That being said, I don't find your URL to be
particularly offensive, but I did find your response to another ad
somewhat ingenious.

Yes, because I put it there.

Hank:

Just for the record, I have no problem with the URL in your sigh. You
have become an active member of the group, participating in many
discussions and have also offered good advice in your area of
expertise. You haven't just responded to shoe posts by saying come to
the store.

Doug and I have often stated that that kind of participation is
appropriate and welcome.
