Most of these are junk for distance running.

totally agree

if you're looking for a pair of shoes for the gym or quick runs, these look good. probably great. however, if you're looking to do some serious distance training, consider shoes like:

Brooks ghost, Ravenna, adrenaline, glycerine
saucony triumph or their ISO line now
new balance 900+ line, though I prefer the 1000+ versions.

hope this helps. buyer beware, not all shoes are created equally.

the Ravenna I never had any luck with - felt like a very cheap shoe (only paid $24 for them so what should I expect) - I used the PureCadence for 4 years, but now Brooks killed that shoe off and made it just like the Ravenna... Going to have to look at New Balance I guess...

What asics model would you recommend?

I personally tried my firend's 235 and my 910xt with hrm simultaneously and there is a difference, I will never buy a watch with an optical hr.
with the optical it takes about five.minutes for it to even come close to dialing in

Unfortunately none of those stores sell leather Birkenstock. God damn it, Butters.

I have been hesitant too - but I've had a horrible experience with the HRM straps. Even with washing the straps every 6 runs, I can't ever get past about 500 miles before the strap stops working and has to be replaced. If the first 5 minutes is bad - that's fine with me - my heart rate doesn't start moving much until I'm well past 30 minutes.

That's true except Ravenna which is average for serious running.
Asics - go with Nimbus or Kayano or some GT series for over pronation

Any recommendation on top of line Nike running shoe (both stability and neutrals)?

Ok - you win! ha I just realized I could get the 230 for $199 and a Scosche Rythym+ for $55 after 30% off with code sco30 on Scosche.com... $5 more, but I know HR will work...

If you're looking for Birks, I'd suggest going to us.asos.com [asos.com], They frequently have 10-20% off coupons. Currently, you can take off 10% with code RMNMAY16

I went to a local running shoe store and got fitted for asics gel cumulus 16. I want to get into longer distance running. Could someone point me into the right direction that has a similar fit as the gel cumulus 16 but for longer runs?

I'm also curious as to what constitutes a long distance shoe.
I'm a new runner who got suckered into running a half marathon with no running experience the day before. I was wearing a pair of sketcher sport sneakers which fared well since they were well broken in, and I only ended up with a blistered little toe. I decided to register next year to do more than just finish.
I was fitted for a Cumulus 17 and it felt the most comfortable, but no idea if it was ideal. The price put me off, and I ended up with a Muzino inspire 11, which is lighter and I like the firm snappier feel, but not as soft as the Cumulus, but then I haven't ran more than 4 miles on them yet.
