You'll ruin your knees!

Roads were made for journeys...
I used to run in the same kind of shoe each day (Asics Kayanos, well-cushioned for mild over-pronators), but now go every other day with a more neutral shoe (Saucony Grid Trigon Ride). I was told by a couple of long-time runners that switching the type of shoe will cause slight differences in muscle/tendon/ligament use and can help prevent overuse injuries. I don't know if that's true, but I've avoided injuries so far. Any other opinions?
