I've had Brooks. They were good. I liked Adidas for years. Saucony were good.
I quit Adidas because they changed their models too much from year to year. I ended up on Nike because in 2008 I broke my foot. After I got my cast off I wanted a shoe with a little stiffer sole. I ended up with Nike Pegasus trail. After a year I moved to Pegasus and have been in them ever since. Now I do very little road running anymore so I am in Salomon most of the time.
