I went with the GT-2170 when my 2160's were finally too worn to continue and very pleased with this purchase.

    Good cushion, support and stability.
    Trin
    I have been a longtime loyal customer of Asics GT-21xx series for over 10 years and found that each new model was better than the last with the 2170 being my favorite.

    Shoes fit good with good support and very comfortable.

    It would not surprise me if Runner's World chooses this pair of running shoes as a Best Update or simply the Best Pair of Shoes the next time they review running shoes in the Spring 2012 issue! I got Plantar Fasciitis in both feet and a painful heel spur in the right. I run a lot and most shoes seem to be uncomfortable even after around 100 or so miles (usually between the first 10-15 runs for me). I've always looked for either Motion Control/Cushioning support and owned pairs of running shoes from Brooks, Saucony, Nike, New Balance and even previous Asics models to name a few that I've tried. My size 12 under pronating feet to go along with my 6'2" nearly 200 lbs frame always seem to hurt as well my lower back and recently around my knees area on both legs as well. Looking around for a new pair, I was going after the 2160s but just didn't like the feel for them. Great shoe- don't get me wrong- but just wasn't for me as I wanted more cushioning than what the shoe was offering. However, I've discovered these 2170s next to the 2160s. Without any doubt, I can honestly tell you that I now have my best pair of running shoes I've ever owned. There is plenty of gel, foam, cushion and yet a firm-like support structure throughout the shoes that I can't recall ever feeling and now makes me want to run further than before and has got me feeling the joy of running when I first started to get into the sport. Even the sides of my feet are feeling good after a 10 mile run this morning. If your New Year's Resolution is to get back into shape and you want a good pair of running shoes to go running, jogging or brisk walking in- you can't go wrong with these shoes in my opinion (unless you are looking for minimalist shoes like 5 Fingers or Nike Free) as these Asics 2170s have the perfect combination of both cushioning and support structure I have run-around in during nearly 15 years of running.

    I LOVE these shoes. They're got more shock absorbtion than the GT-2160 and earlier models. I sing a happy song everytime I take a walk in them. Not crazy about the colors/styles but as for the construction of the shoe, it's unsurpassed.

    I'm not a runner so I can't help those who are shopping for that purpose. However, these shoes are terrific for walking and daily wear. They produce a kind of walking on air effect. Light in weight, but excellent arch support. I will definitely be shopping for Asics Gel shoes when these need to be replaced down the road.

    I have been buying the Gt-2160 for several years and decided to purchase this new model this Spring. The price was good, order went perfectly and delivery on time. I have bought these type of shoes in a size 7 medium many times and found them to be just what I needed. The Gt-2170 was my first change and I ordered the same size and width. The shoes are definitely on the narrow side and I'm hoping that with continued use, they will stretch out a bit and be more comfortable. You may want to order a width a bit wider than normal.

    I have tried scores of shoes and inserts of all types to help my plantar fasciitis and pronation problems. I have been wearing the Asics 2160 for the last 6 months which helped. I run about 10 miles a week. However, I put the 2170's on for the first time it was so comfortable I immediately went out and ran a 5K. No breakin for this shoe. It stabilizes your foot so well inside the shoe that you will run better and not suffer the aches and pains in the calves and arches afterwards from pronating. I am 66 so it doesn't take much to mess my feet up. My 26 year old daughter, however, is a mid-plant neutral runner with very smooth form. She bought a pair of 2170's after I did and she also says it is the most comfortable running shoe she has ever worn. She ran a 5k in them a day or two later and absolutely loves them.

    Look at the insert liner inside the bottom of the shoe. The rear portion of the liner curves up the side walls of the shoe so that it cups the heel of your foot. The liner also curves farther up the side wall under your arch which give your arch a soft-cushioned support. The end result is that you foot doesn't flop around inside the shoe and your heel and arch are comfortably supported. First time I have run without discomfort or pain in 5 years. Thanks Asics!

    5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Doug Erlandson TOP 500 REVIEWER on March 25, 2013
    I have been wearing Asics for the past seven years. Before that I wore New Balance for more than two decades. All the pairs of Asics I have had are extremely comfortable and they appear to have good support and cushioning. The downside is that none of the pairs that I have bought wear all that well. The heels tend to wear down quickly, and I find myself having to replace a pair after about three to four months, despite the fact that I no longer go more than 4-5 miles per day (and sometimes less than that). More annoying is that almost every pair I have had the mesh top has quickly worn out on the left shoe (though for some reason not the right) where the tip of the great toe rubs against the mesh. (I know this isn't a problem with the toe itself, since this never happened when I wore New Balance and I never wear out my socks in that area.) Quality seems to be a problem, which, considering that these are not a cheap running shoe, is definitely an issue.
