I am flat-footed - have gone through a couple pairs of Saucony Omni Grid 5. Mild overpronator. Stability control.
Looking to get a new pair of shoes soon...
I have a similar problem and wear NB 1223 (recently replaced by the 1224) and think they are the best shoes I have ever found....they are a stability shoe made for over pronators....they feel great and my mileage went up almost immediately after I bought them........ they are a little expensive at $99 to $125 but really good shoes.
Two other options that I will be checking out today are Asics 2130 and NB 992 -- Im checking them out because they cost less ---- which will make Mrs John A happy....

I also wore the Brooks Adrenalines 6, 7, and 8, but had problems with the 8s. Now I'm in the Saucony Hurricane 10s - no more problems. They are slightly heavier than the Adrens, but have better cushioning and arch support.
