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.

    as a heavy guy who is flat footed to the point that my footprint doesn't look human, i definately recommend these shoes. being in iraq as a soldier requires tough and sturdy running shoes. breaking them in i'd definately recommend, as the first run was hell for my feet in them. after about a week and maybe 12 miles on them i felt great wearing them. they are relatively flexible for the amount of the support they provide as well. these are my second pair of asics motion stability running shoes. the first pair left blisters where my arches should be. be prepared for that if its your first pair. your feet will get used to the shoes in about 1 to 1 1/2 weeks.

    also for the price, these shoes are worth it. don't go cheap on running shoes. especially if you need good support for them. the wrong shoes can hurt your ankles, knees, back, neck in a sort of chain reaction if you aren't wearing the right shoes.

    I previously owned the Foundation 8 which was a very comfortable shoe that I use just for walking around. I also own two pairs of the Asic Evolution 5's that I specifically use for jogging and running. The cushioning on both of my Evolutions have worn out so I decided to purchase the new Foundation 9 to replace my older Evolutions as a jogging/running shoe...

    I find that the Foundations, both the 8 and 9 feel like they have more overall cushion around the foot, however it does feel a bit heavy. I am a severe overpronator and these shoes perform just as well as the more expensive Evolution 5. They feel slightly stiffer compared to the Evolution 5 but this may change after it properly breaks in I've only put in about 12 miles in them). So far I am satisfied with these shoes which I use for running and if they continue to hold up, I may have found a cheaper replacement for the more expensive and great Asic Evolution 5.

    Update (10/4/11): I completed a half-marathon in these shoes and experienced blisters and pain from mile 8 and on. I did not experience any pain whatsoever with the Evolutions in my previous half-marathon. I previously used the Foundations for short, 3-mile runs and decided to use then on my last half-marathon which was a big mistake. Nonetheless, I prefer the Asics Evolution of long distances over the foundations.

    I have flat feet and after did some research, I found out that the best type of running shoes for me is motion control one. Asics has been getting a lot of positive reviews, specially their gel foundation line. I am an active person and do a running everyday, therefore I need a durable shoes that can also preserve my posture and legs. I bought and tried gel foundation 9 and couldn't be more satisfied with it.

    The support really helped me. I felt the difference when running and it felt like I did it more correctly this time. It just felt right wearing this shoes when working out. The ventilation of the shoes work really well too, therefore your feet would always have air circulation, which is a very good thing.

    I decided to give this shoe a try in the interest of saving some money over ASICS' higher priced GEL-Evolution series. The company groups both styles within their "Maximum Support" category, but offers the GEL-Foundation for about $30 less.

    I really wanted to like this as much (if not more) than the higher priced GEL-Evolution, which is what I normally wear. However, I found the support just wasn't as good, even when paired with Superfeet GREEN orthotic inserts.

    I'm still not sure what the extra $30 pays for in the GEL-Evolution, but for whatever reason it works much better for me -- I am a serious overpronator. Still, the GEL-Foundation might be a good (and more affordable) choice for those with moderate overpronation.

    I already have the ASICS Gel foundation TN8A4(2E), but they are more than a year old, and I heard that you should get new shoes every 6 months, so I figured these were just a newer model, and I haven't been disappointed. They are every bit as good as the older model. They feel great when I go out walking with the dog, and she needs to go out every day. Great shoe for the price.

    These are good shoes for people with flat feet. I have plantar fasciitis and my feet kill my most of the time. I'm also in the military and am forced to run every morning. I must wear custom orthotics most of the time, but for some reason, I don't wear them in these shoes and I'm fine. So that just shows you how good they are.

    Before I orderd these shoes I read every revew I could find, everone loved them, Well they are good shoes But the insoles are not what I thought, they were very thin (not much padding) I have flat feed and am prone to shine splints, they didn't help, So I had to take the insoles out and replace them with some insoles that I had purchased at a running store (Powerstep Insoles)My Padiatrist told me that Asics Gel are the Only shoes he were's But I would still need insoles due to the condition of my arch. So that is why I gave the shoes a 3 out of 5, Good shoes but still have to have insoles.

    Used the prior model and have ran about 100 miles in this model. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Also, great price from Amazon compared to traditional retail store pricing. The only reason this is not 5 star is that I do feel a slight difference in the arch from left to right.
