The sizing was spot on for him, he found the uppers to be very comfortable, he loved the responsiveness, breathability and flexibility of the shoe (he runs midfoot strike as recommended by his therapist) and the seemingly ultra light weight compared to the various Saucony's he's been wearing for years. But after 1 mile, he'd had enough. These shoes, touted as 'cushiony and energizing' were anything but, especially for a person with plantars. On a dirt/stonedust track he could feel the pounding on his feet.
I gave these 4 stars (subtracted 1 star because they are not "cushiony" as described) because if you are not suffering foot injuries or have Plantars, this is a great shoe for those who like a lightweight shoe and appreciate that 'road feel' contact when they run but do not expect much in the way of cushiony soles. If you have injuries or are looking for a well-cushioned sole on your runners, look elsewhere.
Con: Compared to previous versions, for some bizarre reason there is much less cushion throughout the shoe and particularly in the forefoot. It's almost as if I received a defective pair. I've been using Kayanos for years to run ~25-30 miles per week with a foot issue that requires a cushioned stability shoe to manage. Not this model. Guess they're just gym shoes now? Not money well spent.
But first I want to point out that with three pairs of the model 23's, I had no issues at all. Then the last pair I bought I had nagging hotspots on the outside balls of my feet, even ended up with my first blister in ten years there after running a half marathon earlier this year. I have to wonder if Asics has different batches of the same model with slight variations to the fit. Definitely a bad experience there, and wouldn't mind hearing from Asics on this.
The 24's have a much more comfortable toebox, and one noticeable difference looks-wise - the raised parts behind the heel are gone, and that back area is flatter now. Not a problem for me as I wear my shoes slightly loose anyway to account for swelling on long runs, but it does make the fit slightly looser than before, which some might have an issue with. We'll see how the soles last - I wish they'd go back to the stiffer material there.
All in all, these are great shoes, same stability as older models with same comfort and cushioning (and for those who need that, it's a big deal). I've put about 80 miles on these with no issues at all, and no hotspots at all.
