My wife, teenage daughter and I all run. The quickest way to narrow down the hundreds of options is to start by deciding if you want a natural width toe-box (e.g. Altra brand) or a regular/narrow one that brings your toes slightly together. We all started out with the regular/narrow brands (Nike, Saucony, ASICS), but have all ended up finding that the wider toe-box brands are way more comfortable. We do not have especially wide feet, it just leaves a lot more room for the natural movement of your toes and fore-foot. I wouldn't go so far as to recommend them to someone I don't know, but I would encourage you to at least try it. If you decide you like the wider toe-box, it will narrow your choices to 6-7 brands and it'll be easier to choose. Or if you know you don't want that, you've eliminated a bunch of brands. Good luck.
