Thank you for your feedback.
They fit true to size and are light and sturdy enough to provide support for even marathons.
Rick | Fit: As expected
I'm a big guy (6'1 and 230lbs) and these very light-weight shoes give me great support as well as cushioning.
A. Gradney "MiXed" | Fit: As expected
Light weight yet durable and it has all the cushioning and pronation control one needs in a running shoe.

    Great light comfortable shoes!

    They are lightweight, with excellent cushioning and some stability for moderate overpronators like myself.

    These feel amazing. The cushioning allowed my to complete an Insanity workout with pain-free joints for the first time. It holds my foot snugly during lateral movement, and my heel stays in place as well.
    However, the picture on Amazon shows sort of a sky blue color. When they arrived, it's more of a teal/bright blue. It's bright enough that it's almost a deal-breaker on these. I'm going to try the Asics Landreth 7, since they are very similar in design and they come in a grey/black/red combo. Hoping I can find a shoe I love as much on the outside as I do on the inside.

    I've run 9 marathon in 11 years and I always have wore this brand.
    One year ago I saw these model in a Running Store at Miami, I tried it and loved it. I just have 3 pairs of these shoes.
    Very soft and light.

    I'm a big guy (6'1 and 230lbs) and these very light-weight shoes give me great support as well as cushioning. I haven't tried the GEL-DS Trainer 18 and they cost almost TWICE as much as these. I'll stick with these until they run out!

    It's an OK shoe to run with. from he looks and feel of the shoe I am not confident that I will get much more than 200 miles on this particular model.

    Been using the 2120/30/40/50/60 series since they have been out. Only reson I went with the DS trainer this time was to give another model a try to feel it out. It is not as sturdy, or beefy as the 2160 series shoe and I suspect I would get mileage from the 2160's as well. Additonally the top mesh area of the DS trainer is not as sturdy as the 2160's thus giving the upper portion of the shoe more instability.

    The shoe is extremely light and comfortable. The shoe is form-fitting to my foot giving it a nice look not looking bulky as some running shoes may look.

    Have been running on these DS trianers for years. They are fairly light and give some stability. I use them on the days I am not going as far, three miles or so. Usually wear a more cushioned pair on longer runs as I am 66 and trying to keep the joints healthy.

    Love the shoe... This is my 5th pair and as an avid runner with flat feet, this shoe was perfect for me. Most importantly I love the Amazon price! $90 versus $135 at NYC JACK RABITT (sorry Jack RABITT, still love you)

    I've been running in the DS-Trainers by Asics for at least 5 or 6 consecutive years. I like this model a lot - 17 - because it's light and relatively stiff (feels fast, not mushy) but I don't feel like I'm on the pavement or underprotected. I like the DS-Trainers because the fit seems a bit narrow and that suits me. Good lightweight trainer that you can use every day and is raceable also.
