A Complicated Issue: It doesn't matter so much as a good fit otherwise, flexibility, durability and maximal cushioning.Addidas has a good pair but it's $180.00.But it also depends on the width of your foot and what you usually run on (asphalt? sidewalk? track?)and how much and how far. As for the arch, you can always buy an arch insert (there's lots on the market).So go for maximal comfort first. Plenty of info online
