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.
Throwing caution to the wind, the third generation of the ASICS GT-2000 is ready to crank out the miles, regardless of distance..
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 am a 200 pound male runner that suffers from Sinus Tarsi syndrome due to my feet rolling, but I was able to go right out in this shoe WITHOUT my orthotics and have had ZERO issues after racking up some serious mileage. Also not a hint of return of previous plantar fasciitis issues. Comfort and injury free ... can't beat it, well worth paying a few extra bucks for.
I did order the wider size, and am very glad I did; it does feel like it might be ever-so-slightly slimmer than other shoes I have had.
By the way, I have not been truly thrilled with any shoe since the old 2170 from a few years back, but in my mind this shoe is every bit as good.
As of 8/2/15 - just ordered my THIRD pair so I can swap out during the week, plus my original ones are starting to get some wear (for good reason). I have put down anywhere from 50 to 70 miles per week with ZERO issues, except my highest mileage pair has a little tear in the fabric on top of the toe-box near my small right toe joint (but purely cosmetic, even that pair still feels great). This is something of a miracle to me after suffering through injuries the last few years; this is more mileage than I did at my "peak" 20 years ago. The shoes aren't cheap but are so well worth it; still incredibly highly recommended!
I've been looking for a good pair of running shoes, and these came up on a search I did for "best sneakers for heavy runners with low arches and over pronation".
I am 5"8' 200 lbs. While I am far from a marathon runner, I enjoy a 5K a few times a week. A few months back I developed planters fasciitis and had to stop for a while to heal. I decided it was time to go back, and took some time researching the shoes I should buy. I wasn't aware that there were shoes made specifically for heavy, flatfooted people like me. Turns out I was running in wrong shoes my entire life and the latest injury was the result of that.
With all of that being said, I have to tell you that these may be the best shoes I have ever ran in. My feet didn't hurt, and still don't, after multiple 5K's. I've been an avid New Balance customer but these have just won me over.
I am a US 9 in NB, and these fit the same.
TL;DR - I am 41 years old, 5"8', 200lbs, flatfooted and over pronate. These are the best shoes i have even ran in.
I like the feel of running shoes though for all around training. I specifically asked for a line of shoes that runs wide. New Balance run wide I guess but not my style.
I've now purchased about 10 pairs of Asics GT shoes over the past 10 years and I'm always very happy with them although I usually need special wide sizing.
• Great Quality
• Not too flashy and not too plain
• well balanced for overall as far as support
• lasts longer on the sole than many other shoes
• Really Comfortable!
As far as what I would change:
• which I could get shoes wider than 4E
• Different styles as far as looks would be nice
Overall, the price is about the same as other shoes that are similar and they keep updating these year after year. That's a good thing for me but at the same time, going for last years model to save some money is worth it unless you're a really serious athlete... You probably won't notice the difference.
The only main annoyance I have with these shoes is that the inserts are sometimes colored and WILL dye or stain your socks. All of my socks have red stain on the bottom after the first wearing of new socks. It's frustrating.
But all over, I am a fan of the GT line from Asics and wear them daily for years now.
