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've tried many makes and models of shoes including other Asics. These by far are the best to reduce knee pain and fix how I walk with extreme overpronation. I'm tall and skinny, 5-11 145lbs very fit. The 11 1/2 in medium fit my average sized feet perfect. Even after 2 weeks they still have that new feel and not a broken in one. I'm also 27 and don't want to wear shows that make me look like an idiot which many stability shoes try to do. You know the ones that are like 2 inches tall and very plain/ugly? Well these look good and you can't even tell how thick the sole actually is without really looking closely. They designed the colors and cuts well to hide that fact and keep them sporty. The price is also very fair at around $80. Great purchase.

    I went through about 4 pairs of the Foundation 8s and loved them. I didn't like the 9s as much, so I was really looking forward to the Foundation 10.

    Turns out they are a completely different shoe, way overcushioned and feel sloppy. More like the Brooks Beast, which I did not care for at all.

    The 8 was great, the 9 barely OK, and the 10 sucks. I think Asics went in the wrong direction with this model - they should take a page from NB's book with the classic 992 and just keep making the Foundation 8.

    I returned them and found a pair of Foundation 8s on the interweb. Will buy all I can get my hands on, then probably switch to a different brand, maybe back to NB.

    This is a great shoe. I was recurring shin splints with my old asics that I later found out weren't meant for the foot type. I recommend it to anyone with flat feet.

    I have owned the Gel Foundation 6, 7, 8, and now the 10. I think the 10 may be a tad heavier, but I have flat feet ans slight pronation. They really work for me, and these shoes have lessened the wear I fell in my knees when on a run. They come in different widths so if they feel like they are "biting" your toes you may have purchased a size that is too narrow. I would buy these again.

    My husband went to an expensive running store to get fitted for shoes and these were what was recommended. They cost much less through Amazon than in the stores. He has been buying this same model for a couple of years and they really help him. Prior to finding these, he had terrible pains in his knees when ran. These do the trick and he knows when he needs a new pair because his knees start hurting again. They seem to last him about nine months and he runs about 3 times a week.

    My feet have virtually zero arch, but I am able to run 3-4 miles several times weekly without too much discomfort. I have knee problems and lower back pain, both of which are exacerbated by flat feet/standing for long periods of time, but these shoes make the pain far more tolerable. I have purchased 6 pairs of these, and will continue to do so until they stop making them. They are pretty fugly though, and a monochromatic color scheme (All white or mostly white with some subtle color accents) would make them perfect.

    Been using the GEL foundation series from 7 onwards, which I got introduced through a professional running store when I started running marathons and ever since stuck with them as a matter of habit and had no reason to try anything else.

    I think the problem with reviewing shoes is after wearing it a few times, you just get used to it. However, when I started wearing it the first few times, felt it was not as good as the earlier ones. Was heavier and felt the finish was not as good. I think I would still go back to the earlier one 8 series (if it were still available).

    I don't know the technical terms because I'm not an expert but these the the best running shoes I have ever owned. Nice wide area for toes, hugs the arch, and heel cushions well.

    I was once a kid who only bought Nike, Reebok, Adidas fashion sneakers - none of the running shoes of these brands can compare to these Asics.
