Question about the 'right' shoe. Any recommendations would be excellent.

My style of play: fast, quick stops and starts, agressive

Current footwear: Fila Alfa.

Foot: pronated, average width (not wide, not narrow)

I am wearing out the Fila Alfa on the insides, and I do find I am rolling the ankle on occasion. I have strong ankles, so I am not finding issues - but I do not want to risk it. Also, given the pronation and wearing a shoe not for pronators, my little toe (outside of foot) has frequent pain, as that is where I am pushing off.

Any recommendations would be excellent. I'm not sure if I should be looking for a shoe with a high arch support like the Adidas Genius, or if that would be completely wrong. Thanks in advance.

Order a bunch from TW to try in your house and return what doesn't fit.

Best performance & comfort shoe = Asics Gel Resolution II, lacking in durability.

Best performance & durability shoe = Adidas Barricade (I like the II for value), lacking in comfort compared to Asics GRII.
