1.0 out of 5 stars If you loved the Gt-21XX series don't buy this shoe., August 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GT-2000 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I have owned many pairs of Asics shoes.

I have run in nothing else for years.

I loved the GT-20XX-21XX series.

I loved the wide toe box, the cushioning and support.

I loved that my Fred Flintstone feet fit in them.

Durability was good (not great but good).

If you loved all of these things don't buy this shoe.

Tow box is narrow (even on a 2E) and the taper is now
to fast.

This is a shoe more suited to dainty pointy feet.

I desperately wanted to like them but they gave me blisters
on the pinky toe and put to much pressure on the top of
my foot. I even switched back to my old warn out 2170's hoping
to find that they didn't fit me anymore either and that my
feet were just somehow swollen. But alas my warn out 2170's were
better than the 2000's that replaced it.

They are also now rock hard providing little impact cushion.

If you liked the GT-2170 and its forbears I suggest the
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13. Just passed 30 miles on my first
pair and it was even better than the 2170's when they were new.

I ran in 2160s and 2170s before buying 2 pairs of 2000s, and I loved them all equally.

Thanks for this review. I thought I was losing my mind that despite being the same width as my older GT-2000's they were tighter. I thought they might loosen up after a few runs, but they're still kinds tight. I got them on clearance really cheap, so they've been demoted to walking around shoes.
