Shoe brand means almost nothing in itself since each manufacturer produces shoes for different categories. The more meaningful consideration is which category you're selecting.
My opinion is that athletic shoes- expecially running shoes- are among the biggest loads of SHIT in all of training mythology. Most of the different bells and whistles availible (arch support, pronation control, cushioning, etc.) are worthless for most people and can actually be quite disruptive to the natural mechanics of the feet and limbs. All "shoe technology" has been developed to support the marketing efforts of shoe componies, and I suspect that it has been responsible for causing far more injuries than it has prevented.
What most athletes need is a minimalistic shoe with a thin, flexible sole that interferes minimally with the mechanics of the bare foot. Better yet, train barefoot whenever possible!
Don't ever rely on information associated with any kind of financial interests (which nearly all footwear literature is), and don't take advice from podiatrists who pay for their BMWs by making orthotics and other kindsof junk for your feet. Go barefoot/minimalist, develop strong, healthy feet, and avoid the need for any kind of footwear pseudoscience.
