Best Running Shoe I've Ever Had
on February 18, 2013
I have been running for over 20 years and have tried just about every major brand out there: NB, Nike, Adidas, Ryka, Avia, etc. Asics has by far delivered the most consistent, comfortable running shoe for me. This particular model has been the best, hands down. It is the only shoe that I can run 10+ miles in and not have any knee, foot pain or blisters. I just ran 11 miles the other day, and had a few muscle aches and that's it! The Asics Kahana shoe has also been great for me, but this one wins hands down! Have ordered a couple extra pairs to keep on hand, since this one is no longer being made.
I am editing this review to add: I have tried both the pink/gray color and the blue/white color. The blue/white shoes seem to run a bit smaller than the pink/white shoes and gave me blisters in the toe area. The materials in the pink/white shoe seem to be more flexible, and the toe area seems wider than the blue/white shoe. I'm not sure how that can be, since they are the same exact model and size only just different colors (maybe they are manufactured in different places???). I have not tried the purple version of this model.
