For the higher mileage runner looking for structured cushioning and support, the GT-2000 5 shoe features a FluidRide® midsole for exceptional bounce-back and cushioning. An added stitch-down toecap enhances durability and forefoot support.
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.

Just got blue pair I ordered and they look really good too. These blue colored versions will go good with a lot of my athletic attire.
See 13 pics attached. The pics with Under Armour leggings are with a different shoe not the Asics but will look good with these blue Asic GT-2000 5s.
I've been a Nike shoe fan for many years and always ran in neutral shoes...
Recently I've had issues with over pronation ( foot rolling inward at ankle ) which required a shoe with " motion control ".
Nike used to make running shoes with " motion control " that were very good 6 yrs ago but stopped for some reason making them. I just ran out of my supply of shoes. ( I stock up on shoes once I find pairs that I like, are comfortable, have great cushion, stability, arch support & motion control ).
I discovered Brooks Beast 14s & 16s late August and Brooks GTS 17s in late October and they are phenomenal running shoes ( see my reviews for Beast 16s & GTS 17s for more details ).
Love Brooks Beast 16s for cushion, support & stability.
Love Brooks GTS 17s because they are light and have excellent but a little less cushion, support & stability than Beast 16s...
I also like having various styles of running shoes and flexibility to alternate and use different pairs depending on mood and/or style want to wear on any given day.
I just learned about Asics' GT-2000 5 & GEL-Foundation 12s about a week earlier.
I just received the blue version of the same shoe and the look great. The blue version will also match my blue Under Armour leggings too.
GT 2000 5s are equivalent to Brooks GTS 17
Foundation 12s are equivalent to Beast 16s
I just received my first pair of GT-2000 5:
They are very comfortable, snug and fit very good right out of the box, yet they are not too tight.
There's plenty of room in the toe box area and the heels are snug and feel great inside the heel cup.
The shoes look very good, cushion is good but feels a little squishy all around the heel area, but not as squishy as the Asic Keyano 23s.
While arch support is there, it feels a lil weak.
I'll wear them around inside house for awhile before taking them outside, just in case arch support and possibly cushion isn't firm enough and I have to return shoes to get full refund.
Real test will come when used outside for several consecutive miles in one session...
My initial impression of the GT-2000 5s is they are a very good looking shoe, feel great, are very comfortable; however, I think they may not be as comfortable on a 3 to 7 mile walk or run as cushion & arch support may compress or collapse too much.
I'm a big guy so if you're light, then it probably won't matter as much...
I bought following Brooks since 8.30.16 because once I find a shoe that fits and feels good, I load up on them.
2 - beast 14s ( different colors )
7 - beast 16s ( different colors )
2 - gts 17s. ( different colors )
I bought following Asics couple of days ago:
GT-2000 5 - 1 Black
GT-2000 5 - 1 Blue
Foundation 12 - 1
12s won't be shipped until 1.4.17.
As mentioned earlier the GT-2000 5s feel great out of the box and that is a good sign. Hope they feel just as great after 3 to 8 mile walk and/or run.
Highly recommend you try them if you're in the market for brand new pair of shoes that are stable and have cushion but are not too ridgid...
Beast 16s Extreme Motion Control, Cushion & Stability.
Beast 14s same as 16s, but less: Motion Control, Cushion & Stability, but still good.
GTS 17s are very light compared to Beast 14s & 16s and have less Motion Control, Cushion and Stability than 14s or 16s yet they are still exceptional. I wear GTS 17s every day, every where primarily because they are 99% all black.
Asic GT-2000 5s are equivalent to Beast GTS 17s, but feel more cushy & slightly less ridgid and less arch support, but they are good.
Foundation 12s are equivalent to Beast 16s and should be more sturdy & more ridgid, yet have more cushion, arch support and motion control than GT-2000 5. I've not received them yet so I only know what I've read and have been told by retailer which I trust because they have demonstrated integrity and have good credibility...
Best of success in whatever you end up with...
However, the last pair I bought, GT 2000-4, have worn out terribly at the heel. After comparing shoes, the problem is obvious. In earlier versions of GTs, the heel material was a mesh type of fabric. In the new GTs the material is a flimsy cloth.
Needless to say, Asics had cut back and quality, and while they may be saving on their cost of goods, they have lost a 20+ customer who typically buys 3-4 pairs of GTs a year. Too bad!
Take my advice I have no reason to knock a company's product like this but these are a no no
