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 heavy construction materials and overall inflexibility refused to allow my foot to flex naturally. I found the narrow toe box […]

Asics Gel-Lyte 33 Review

The Gel-Lyte 33 is the newest and lightest addition to Asics 33 collection. This shoe is being marketed by Asics as a fast paced lightweight racer/ daily trainer. However, many are pairing it into the minimalist category a title that Asics seems unwilling to tag with this particular shoe. Either way the Gel-lyte offers a […]
