    Looking for comfort, support, for a good running experience, and ones that won't break the bank (i,e, preferably <100£ )

    I would imagine one of the world's largest sportswear companies knows how to make a decent pair of shoes.

    Go to a good sports shop (ideally one with a treadmill and cameras) and try them out properly. Everyone's feet are different and there's no point taking strangers' advice from the internet. You'll definitely be able to get a good pair in that budget, don't just limit yourself to Nike. FWIW my current road running shoes are Asics and for off-road I use inov8, each pair was about £60.

    As above poster said, check out other brands but Nike are in my opinion the most stylish and decently made. Just don't cheap out and get the right size.

    I really would suggest ignoring the fashion aspect of them. I bought some Nike Shox when they came out but they were so uncomfortable to run in as they had no heel support. If you're going to be running in them then honestly no one is going to be looking at (or caring about) your shoes. Get whatever works best for you.

    I'm run pretty much daily about 2-5miles unless I am training for a longer run I signed up for. I will be honest and say that Nike 'running' shoes have little to no support. Some may feel otherwise and like them, but there is no arch support in their frees (which they consider running). I use those more for lifting and gym workouts but not running. Your best bet for inexpensive but still good running shoes would be to get really good running shoes on sale. Most are on sale because they were last year's model and new colors are coming out but Asics, Brooks, and Saucony are some of the best.

    I really like my adidas boost st running shoes. They offer me plenty of support and cushioning. I have had two pairs of asics in the past and neither have lasted as many miles as I would expect from a running shoe so that's why i decided to try a different brand. Loved my first pair of mizunos, but the brand has since changed he shape of the toe box and I no longer find them as comfortable. You need to try on a range of shoes in your price band and feel what's comfortable. Run in each for a few minutes on the treadmill before buying to get a feel for them.

    I wouldn't get running shoes based on looks. I'd get them based on how they feel. I currently run in Nike and Brooks.

    Yeah Nike are my choice - I used to run in Karrimor for trail though and they were still reasonable, whilst being quite cheap.
