Gone Forever... Never To Be Seen Again....
on May 7, 2015
Now discontinued, these were my favorite running shoe for 3 years in a row.
I only wore them for running, not for casual wear at all, and I got up to 18 miles running in this shoe.
I think these may have been my favorite running shoes of all time, to be honest, and I'm pretty disappointed that they were discontinued.
While ASICS claimed that the GT-2000 was the replacement for these, that shoe had totally different characteristics and pretty much everyone who reviewed the GT-2000 agreed that it didn't have the cushioning or the fit of the DT-2170.
ASICS then came out with the GT-2000 2 which was supposed to fix the aspects of the GT-2000 that kept it from being the equal of the GT-2170, but again, those who reviewed the show agreed that it missed the mark again.
Some reviewers claimed that the GT-3000 was actually much closer to the GT-2170, but that shoe was supposed to be the equal to another shoe in the ASICS lineup according to ASICS....
So, what was proclaimed by so many runners to perhaps be the best running show ASICS ever made vanished into the dustbin of history all in the name of a new model year, a new offering, and a complete disregard for the hundreds of thousands of runners around the world who had come to know and to praise this shoe so much....
