Asics Gel-DS Trainer 22 Review

The DS trainer returns again as the sleeper hit of ASICS’ arsenal of shoes. It is a fast shoe that introduces ASICS’ coveted new FlyteFoam mid sole. Thanks to the new mid sole material, it floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. I have been an avid follower of this shoe for a […]

Asics GT-2000 5 Review

ASICS comes back for a 5th time with their GT 2000 line of stability shoes. The sole is nearly identical from before, but the upper has had an overhaul giving a more updated look. The shoe is slightly heavier (.3 ounces) than last year. This was surprising considering the new upper. I personally cannot tell […]

Asics Gel Nimbus 19 Review

ASICS is known for a few of their models above all others — the Nimbus and Cumulus for neutral runners, the Kayano and GTs for support runners. The Nimbus has been the flagship high-mileage trainer for the company for years, and is typically described as an ultra cushioned trainer. However, over the years ASICS has […]

Asics FuzeX™ Rush Review

Last spring Asics debuted its Fuzex collection of road shoes. The collection featured Asics new FuzeGel cushioning system a blending of the long-favored GEL technology and EVA. The initial line consisted of the FuzeX and FuzeX Lyte. Further expanding this collection Asics has a third shoe which is lighter and more performance oriented, enter the […]

Asics Gel Kayano 24 Review

ASICS is back again with the Kayano 24. Not too much has changed in this model, but there is an improved upper and increased room in the toe box. I enjoyed running medium to long distances in these and felt they excelled when I did my longer runs at a slower pace. The shoe is […]

Asics Gel Cumulus 19 Review

Upon first stepping into the Cumulus 19, the shoe’s bulk and stiffness were immediately apparent. The lack of flexibility both underfoot and in the upper did not result in the most comfortable first run. The heavy construction materials and overall inflexibility refused to allow my foot to flex naturally. I found the narrow toe box […]

Asics GT-3000 5 Review

On my first run in these shoes (5 miles) I wore thin socks, knowing it’s a narrow shoe, and got a small blister from the seam at the base of the laces on each of my 4th toes…(probably pre-irritated from my first run in GT-1000 two days before). Slightly thicker socks allowed the next run […]

Asics Gel Cumulus 13 Running Shoes Review

Asics Gel Cumulus 13 First Impressions Asics changed very little with the Cumulus 13 and those familiar with the shoe will appreciate Asics philosophy of not fixing what isn’t broken. Fewer overlays give the Cumulus 13 a more breathable feel and a “guidance line” was added to aid in transitioning through the foot strike. Overall, […]

Asics Gel Kayano 18 Running Shoes Review

We received two pairs of Kayano 18 to test from Asics (thanks!). Two reviewers (Ruggero and Theo) run some decent mileage on each and this review is a combination of their opinions. The review was not influenced by receiving the test shoes Asics GEL Kayano 18 First Impressions If Asics plays it safe with the […]

Asics Fuji Trail Runner Review

Fuji Trainer I’ve been running on the Asics Fuji Trainer trail running shoes, part of their trail runner Fuji line. The Fuji Trainer is a wild styled blue beast, and my first experience with Asics and the Gel tech that differentiates them from their competitors. I was mainly running on the Trainers in the hills […]
