5.0 out of 5 stars Best Trainer shoe ever, highly recommended, June 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Blur33 2.0 Running Shoe (Shoes)
I've been a runner for over 10 years, I've tried Mizuno,New Balance, Saucony, Nike as running shoes, for some reason it took me a long time to get to the Asics, now I am kicking myself after I tried these out, these are the most comfortable, lightweight trainer shoes, is the right frontier between lightweight and hell of a cushioning.

They do feel different, and this is asics intention the 33 collection is supposed to bring a more natural foot movements and it does, the shoe kinda merges with you feet, it's a nice, fresh symbiotic relationship LOL

No problem with the widht, version 1.0 was narrow, this isn't, this is perfectly adjusted and as mentioned in other reviews, laces now have the right lenght.

This is the perfect trainer for an every day run, no sourness or any sort of pain whatsoever after using them for hours.
This is the one, buy it.

6 month use update:
These were not just a good first impression, after 6 months they continue to be as good as they have always been in cushioning, comfort and lightweight.Highly recommended, I just bought my wife the blur2.0 for ladies, same good experience.

1. Moderate Arch
2. Size 10 , width M
3. Neutral, midfoot strike
4. I use lightweight shoes especially for low distance competitions (1km-10km), it is most comfortable than most lightweighted shoes and shock absorption is good, I use these shoes about 4-5 times a week, each time to run from 5km-7km, rarely 10km (but still comfortable at 10km). I would think it twice before engaging these in a 15km and up race due to its nature of being lightweighted.

Works for casual too, very nice looking with a pair of jeans, and people will comment about it; been there, done that.

Before people post "reviews" about their footwear, it would be helpful for them to include information about their running issues:

1. Foot type (no arch, moderate arch, high arch)
2. Size & width
3. Foot strike (overpronation, neutral, underpronation or supination, heel strike or midfoot strike)
4. Other issues - (example - are you prone to blisters with new shoes? How often do you use the shoe each week and for what distance runs? Etc.)

Otherwise, your reviews are highly subjective and do not help other people make informed decisions about the shoe you are reviewing.

You are right, answering to your questions (which I will also include in every shoe review)
1. Moderate Arch
2. Size 10 , width M
3. Neutral, midfoot strike
4. I use lightweight shoes especially for low distance competitions (1km-10km), it is most comfortable than most lightweighted shoes and shock absorption is good, I use these shoes about 4-5 times a week, each time to run from 5km-7km, rarely 10km (but still comfortable at 10km).
