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.

    There is always a price point in any company's running shoe line where there are diminishing returns beyond that price. For new balance its the 1226. For Brooks its the Adrenaline GTS 11. Out pacing them all is the ASICS GTS 2160. I own the Asics gel Nimbus 12 and the Kayano 17. For the money the sweet spot in their lineup is the 2160. Asics just keeps getting it right with this 2100 series shoe. I will go out on a limb and state their is no better running shoe in the world at this price point. Cushioning is top notch. The stitching and design of the uppers is excellent. The interior materials are also a grade above most running shoes. I have other shoes like the Nike Vomero 5, a slew of New Balance shoes and a slew of Brooks runners. I bought this shoe in all Black thinking it was a lower end Asics product and I would use it as a walking shoe. Boy was I wrong. You can pay more but you won't get more. Since I got this shoe I did some additional research and found out I was not the only one who knew the secret about this shoe. In fact ASICS sells more 2100 series shoes than any other shoe in the world. The problem with these shoes is once you put them on you won't want to take them off. It feels great walking running working and hiking. Very light and flexible but still with enough support to make even the finicky runner happy. This is the top seller and now I know why and you do too. Quality at a discount price. Can somebody make an all Brown running shoe so I can wear them to work !! I have not considered buying the same model running shoe from any company. This is likely a repeat purchase. I need a good excuse. My wife thinks I've lost my mind with all these running shoes. Truth is these shoes will make you want to run 7 days a week. And isn't that the point in the first place.

    Very simply put: lightweight, secure fit, cushioned, plush road feel, with memory foam ankle contact. I would say, for the money, it is a better value than the Kayano. And, lucky enough for me, it comes in a 12.5 4E. Try finding that at your local Sports Authority or Dick's. Free shipping from Amazon: arrived in 3 days.

    I have worn the ASICS GT-21XX shoes for years now and the 2160 is the same old reliable shoe in this product line. I did have some problems with last years model (2150?) with both foot and knee soreness but not with the 2160, which is the whole reason I have stuck with this line for at least the last 7 years or so.

    Great running shoe very good feel even on first runs with them. I was using muzuno alchemy 7 but I find the gt has better stability for me. The GT also has great cushioning at the heal and box area. I run 2.5 to 5 miles a day.

    Just started running and initially got the NB 993's as they were rated well here. I live in a rural area so couldn't try on running shoes.

    Big mistake.

    I went to a runner store in VA and went through the fitting process.

    I tried on NB, Brooks, Asics, and several models of each.

    The 2160's felt more molded/supportive to my feet than anything else including the Kayano 17's.

    I have worn the 2160's now several times and each time I run in them I thank myself for getting them!

    I don't mind spending $150 or so on a running shoe, but this $100 shoe was superior to me.

    Everyone's feet are different so head to a store if you can.

    Give these a try if you want 'stability' running shoes.

    Size: 9.5 D(M) USColor: Onyx/Black/Kiwi Verified Purchase
    This is my 2nd pair of 2160s after having had the 2150 and 2140 before that. As a runner, I'm following the rule of don't change what works. I'm actually not convinced it's this shoe model that enabled me to maintain a running program finally free of shin splint pain. It might be, or it might be the Superfeet insoles I use in them.

    The GT-2160 has a very well-designed sole that wears well and strikes the road with the right feel of stability, comfort, and weight. I like how it looks, and although I mainly use it as a dedicated running shoe, I do walk around in them and never suffer any foot fatigue specifically from this shoe, like I would from others.

    My biggest complaint may have more to do with a defect in my own feet and toes, more so than this shoe. I tend to raise my big toe upwards while running and walking. The Asics GT-2160 have a very thin mesh upper. Every pair of this line I've owned, winds up with holes near where this toe raise occurs after around 5 or 6 months of wear. This could be prevented if they would have designed a slightly larger outer protective area near the big toe. There is an added outer layer meant for this, but it falls about a half inch short, in the spot I need more material to avoid this issue.

    Otherwise, the rest of the shoe holds up very well. I just completed 450 miles of training on the prior pair, which I now use playing around the yard with my kids and short walks. I ran a 3:40 full marathon in this new pair I just bought, a personal best, my 3rd marathon at age 40. So I can't complain much, and I'll stick with this model, but wish it was about $20 cheaper, as I think this level of running shoe technology should be. $95 every 6 months for mostly mesh and hard rubber.
