best running shoes

Hi everyone, I am new on here and quite new to running. I started running about 8 weeks ago after quitting smoking and now run 4 miles every other day. 

I am currently wearing New Balance Running trainers but really want to change to a better quality shoe. What can you recommend?? I have heard there are shops where you can go to get your feet properly checked on a running machine and then advised on which shoe is best for you. Where can i get this done??
