Product Description

In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

    I suffered from plantar fasciitis, and could never find a shoe that seemed to help the problem of over-pronating. Finally, I found these babies, and I am back in the game. Lightweight, great balance, they hug the foot and keep me landing squarely. The absorbent cushioning also helped correct a little knee discomfort I felt during runs over 12km. They're equally good on both the treadmill and the road. They are not as breezy as other shoes (my Reeboks were great for letting in the breeze), but it's not like they're a sauna, either.

    I bought a size larger than usual to accommodate my orthotics, and I've heard it recommended to buy a half-size larger even without adding extra support.

    Been running Asics for routine runs and marathons and they have kept my feet and knees very happy. I have had the GT 21xx's and the Nimbus. I think the 3020's are more snug then the GT's for my feet in a good, glove way (am slight over protonator and wide). The gel adds extra comfort and I like the stiffer, higher heel cushion compared to the GT's. I am a lazy man who does not like to lace up all the time or use a shoe horn. Finally they were at a better price point the nimbus and I didn't see the added value in paying more for them. I am still breaking them in but expect them to provide a comfortable ride for 400-500 miles.

    I have a foot problem (Plantar fasciitis). I am not a sports or athletic person. I do 50% Brisk walk and 50% running. I used low to medium range shoes (including Reebok and Asics GEL 1150 series)in the past. Asics GEL 1150 was good for walking and slow running but, for a medium phase running, I feel strain. Also, some times the pain kicks in.

    Now the new GEL-3020 : Used it for about 2 weeks now. Don't see much difference (including comfort) for a walk / brisk walk (compared to GEL-1150). Running (especially medium phase @ 5.5 miles/h), I see 30 % plus difference. Better grip/control, less strain. Felt the running was more easier / comfortable than earlier. Didn't get into the Plantar fasciitis problem. The price paid was more than double (compared to GEL 1150) but, GEL-3020 are well worth the money. Strongly recommend.

    I'm moving up from the Gel-1000 series, which has been my running shoe of the last three purchases. The shoe's a great deal for one of Asics's top-of-the-line stability shoes, but that's because it's a model year behind (the current iteration is the 3030). But that was fine by me... let others pay top dollar for the brand new shoe, and I'll pay deep discounts by buying last year's model. Suckers.

    Shoe's great: it's my distance shoe, which I alternate with the NB Minimus Trail. The shoe's a solid stability shoe for neutral runners (which I am) and overpronators. You won't go wrong with it.

    Major props to Road Runner Sports, who got the shoe to me very quickly, shipping it the very day I bought it.

    The purchase was easy. The shoe is exactly what I was looking for. I have planter fasciitis and its essentially cured it. I can run and move without and pain while I am working out.

    I have flat feet and I normally have to replace the insoles of my shoes immediately. I've probably run 50-60 miles in these so far without changing anything. These shoes really support my feet well and the little bit of extra width in the toe-box keeps my toes from hurting. I'm thinking about getting another pair before the style is discontinued.

    I have been a fan of ASICS for 20 years. I overpronate and need a motion control/stability shoe. I run with the 3020s regularly, and have done several half marathons with this shoe. The 3020s work as well if not better than other ASICS shoes for me. Two thumbs up!

    I suffer from something called DISH disease, where my spine is starting to fure itself together. When I walk it hurts like hell and I needed a pair of shoes that would cusion my hear strike and these do the trick.

    Very well made and comfortable for me.
