ASICS: History and Heritage
After the second world war, ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka observed children wandering the streets barefoot, and decided to help the youth of his country. By promoting the values of Sport, and providing them with high quality athletic shoes to help them perform their best, he believed he could help the children of Japan build a better future with the philosophy of Anima Sana In Corpore Sano: “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.” In 1949, Onitsuka Co. was born, and soon after, the first ever footwear was released from the fledgling brand: a basketball shoe called the “Tiger.” In the years that followed, Onitsuka Co. (re-named “ASICS” in 1977) designed a myriad of scientifically sound, sport-specific shoes for athletes. Mr. Onitsuka’s emphasis on the spirit of Sport and a focus on the needs of the athlete continue today with ASICS, Onitsuka Tiger, And ASICS Tiger shoes, clothing, and accessories. Our dedication to never stop bettering our best reflects our desire to help you, the athlete, to always Better Your Best.

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.

The GT 2000 is a stability shoe, and I discovered 18 months ago, training for my first marathon, that should change to a new pair gradually. I was ready to rotate out an old pair, and did a 5-mile easy run with the new ones. Same size, same model. A couple of days after the run, I started noticing some foot pain on the outside of one foot. I learned later that I had strained my peroneus brevis. This was probably because the shoe was trying to force my foot into an angle that was incrementally different from what it had been with the previous shoes. Having learned that lesson, I ease into a new pair, doing short distances on alternate days until I feel like they've been broken in.
I may try out some other models, like some of the more cushy ones, but I have always been happy with these.
Now if I can just shave another 30 seconds off my mile pace...
Admittedly, buying running shoes is very much a matter of personal preference. But if you haven't tried that Asics before, I would highly recommend you try them before buying your "normal" shoe. These are Crazy Comfortable.
All in all, a fairly good shoe for the price.
I'm downgrading the sizing to "somewhat small", as the 13.5 fits me the way almost ever other brands 13 fit.
Used for walking, not running. A bit expensive, given that the outer soles are almost worn down, but I have worn them almost every day for 4 months, and I'm a big guy who walks a lot, so maybe that's to be expected.
When I tried on these GT-2000 3 shoes and felt that they were too short and narrow in the toe box (particularly on the left since for me that foot is a little longer than my right one), I immediately pulled out a 2 year old pair of Gel-Cumulus 16 shoes. You know what? They were a little snug as well (although the toe box had more minimal construction which gave the impression of more room).
I used to be able to order any ASICS size 13 and knew they would fit. Well, after many years of running and aging (in my mid-40s), I'm coming to the conclusion that my feet are changing more than ASICS is changing their shoes. I had this same problem recently with a pair of Mizunos that I bought (although my Reeboks in a size 13 are perfect...maybe Reeboks run big?).
Today I went to a big box athletic store and tried on several brands of shoes. A few of the 13s sort of fit, but for the most part they all felt a little small (like you're wondering if you went and ran a few miles would you end up with black toe nails). I measured my foot on the scale and it was 13 on the dot. With athletic shoes you typically need a size up. I tried on the GT-2000 4 in a size 14 and they fit and felt right. It seems that I need to start wearing size 14 in ASICS.
In conclusion, as you get older your feet lengthen and widen, having lost fat padding, tendons stretching, etc. So don't always blame the shoe manufacturer.
