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 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.
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.

I'm a huge Asics fan and love this series of shoes. The 2160's one flaw is that the heel is a bit tall so it tends to rub strangely. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Sang
