Never in my life have I had the displeasure of experiencing a more uncomfortable pair of shoes. I bought them maybe 2 years ago because I really liked an identical pair. For some reason, these were completely different in feel. I took them on maybe 50 mi worth of short runs to try to break them in. Then i took them on a couple of city walks and hikes. I made the mistake of not bringing any other athletic shoes on the outing. They decimated my shins and hip bones.
I ended up switching to my dress shoes and finally felt sweet relief on my poor bones. And I'm a runner and in good shape.
I contacted Asics for some refund and they told me to pound sand because it was out of warranty. I understand, but these shoes were so terrible that I feel I am owed some compensation.
To this day i still use an older version of these. They are old and full of holes, but they havent let me down. I really like Asics, but might go Saucony for my next pair because these shoes have severely traumatize my body and could have demolished my hips if I hadn't listened to my friends.
To be honest, I buy running shoes for two reasons. I'm a regular runner, 3-4 times a week, but not long distance. 6-10 km each time, easy pace. I'm 43 years old, so no longer trying to improve a lot. Just trying to keep healthy and fit enough to enjoy the years ahead with my relatively young children. So the other regular use of my shoes are in the weekends, with jeans or bermudas, or on casual friday at work. So, they have to look good too and be as comfortable for walking as they are for running.
Perhaps my expectations were already realistic but I was v pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the fit was immediately. Hey this is as cushy as the more expensive models! Have I been paying too much for 'segmentation' all this while?? It has that nice 'foot glove' feel - snug but not too tight. The neon green turned out to be very nice too. Not garish or 'obiang' but bright and catchy.
When I took it for the first run, initially I felt the 'side cushioning' wasn't as stable as the Kayano (19, also bought from Amazon at a great value of US$87!), but that was just for the first minute or two, as I got used to this shoe. After that, the run was pretty much what I'd expect from an Asics - you don't notice the shoe after a while, which is the best compliment you can give to a runner's shoe. Frees your mind to wander, focus on your form, enjoy the morning fresh air and the feeling of being alive.
Human beings are naturally relative creatures. Once we get used to something better or more expensive, we only notice the bad things of a more 'regular' product. It was amazing to me that this did not occur with the Gt-2000. In fact, I find myself reaching out for this shoe as often as I do my Kayano or my Saucony Kinvaras (4). Surprisingly, the one that turned out most disappointing, perhaps again because the expectation was the highest due to the price, was the Kinsei (4). Twice (out of perhaps 1-2 dozen times) after 10km runs with the Kinsei, I felt soreness in my feet that bordered on pain. Considering its positioning as the highest end Asics, this was a big letdown. Nonetheless, the design is very creative and I still use those shoes a lot for casual walking.
A final word about buying the latest model vs an older one. My view is unequivocal. Buy the older model!! They are much cheaper and unless you are Sebastian Coe, you won't notice the 'advance in technology'!! Most of these brands will discount as much as 40% to clear the older stock, which to me is a great bargain. So why would you pay 60% more (or $30) for the gt 3000 when you can get a perfectly brand new gt 2000 much cheaper? And these shoes wear out in less than a year anyway, when the gt 4000 will appear and your gt 3000 is no longer the latest model? This is one of the best arbitrages in the world, until the shoe makers wise up to this and stop discounting the last to latest models! In the meantime, pick up these great bargains. And happy running!!
I rated these sneakers 4 stars instead of 5 because after having trained with both I prefer the 2100 to the 2000 series. The 2000s lack some of the stability and ankle support the 2100s provide. That said, I typically run 15-20 miles a week and run in 5 and 10k races, so these sneakers are perfect my use. Runners who train for longer distances may want the added support.
I tend to change my sneakers every 6 months. If I can find 2170s at a decent price next time I am looking I will probably go with those, otherwise I will stick with the 2000s.
