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.

With the New Balance shoes there was no padding and i was really getting discouraged with my long runs. I would finish battered and bruised. As soon as i slipped the 2140's on i couldn't believe how comfortable they felt. It was amazing. They are the perfect balance of support and padding. I plan to complete my training in these shoes and i know they will take me through the marathon as well. I can't wait. Great shoes!
If you are having leg pain, do yourself a favor and go to a real running store where they can video you running on a treadmill. They can diagnose your gate and tell you which shoe might work well. Don't do what I did and just start buying shoes. I ended up with a pair of Cumulus that I hardly used. Not wanting to have that shoe go to waste I ended up spending more money for a corrective insert. Now they work fine, but I could have saved myself a chunk of money.
Oh, and the cool yellow stripes make me run faster. I'm sure of it!
Overall: a solid, good looking shoe with good arch support, comfortable, on the lighter weight side of shoes, probably best used by people under 210 (or so) in weight.
Per Runner's Studio, I've logged 425 miles on this pair so far. Looking at the tread, they have maybe another 200-ish miles of life left. Besides a bit of discoloration from sweat on the white 'mesh' part of the upper shoe, and the tread-wear, they are essentially still in new condition. Obviously this is helped by my using them as being primarily an indoor shoe, but still that's pretty good mileage for me as I tend to be pretty hard on shoes.
Based on my limited sample (1 pair), these run maybe 1/4 to 1/2 size small, but stretch without damaging to 'normal' size quickly and painlessly.
For people needing a bit of extra support and willing to pay a bit of a weight price, I'd fully recommend these.
This also marks the first time that I have ever bought shoes on-line. The experience I had with working with Amazon.com was nothing short of their normal excellent customer service. The shoes were delivered to me in a timely manner and arrived in perfect shape. This is my favorite place to shop on-line for everything and anything that I am looking for.
