So, I have pretty flat feet and I tend to over-pronate.  My shoes are in need of replacement, and I'd like to find a good pair for my foot-type and running style.  I run five miles a pop anywhere from three to five times a week  Any suggestions?  Much appreciated!

I also have rather flat feet and have used New Balance with good results. It's hard to say which particular model would suit you best, they have quite a range from basic support to strong motion-control, so I'd recommend you go to a good running store where they'll fit you.

Right now I am running in Brooks Adrenaline X, which are a more basic shoe without a lot of motion control, and they are working very well for me. I have concentrated a lot on improving my form and it has helped me deal with the flat feet.

Hey, thanks!  I actually have Vibrams now, and so far, so good.  Au naturale.

I was going to suggest Vibrams as I had the same issue a couple years ago, but I see you hoped on that wagon! They helped me develop an arch and got rid of my shin splints from over pronating too.
