Light AND Cushioned (Read 652 times)


I'm back!

    I got a coupon at Big Sur for a free pair of Asics (because our Boston 2 Big Sur jackets were not ready on time).

     

    I know nothing about Asics... can someone recommend a model that is light and cushioned, preferably with a decent heel-toe drop?

      Do they even still make the Hyperspeed? That used to be my marathon shoe and I liked it a lot back before Asics started to just turn out garbage.

       

      mta: indeed they do.

      Runners run.

        They come in pretty colors

         

        Ask for the Gel Noosa

        I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

          I've had a pair of these for a few months and done up to 15 miles in them -

          I've run in the PureCadence, Mirage, Kinvara, Fastwitch, and these felt different from anything I'd worn in the past.  I noticed the first few runs I did in them, I'd hear my foot smacking the ground really loudly.  The shoe took some getting used to but I've really come to like it a lot.

            Hoka One. Huge cushioning but still a low 4mm heel drop and 10.4 ounces, they are no heavier than most cushioned running shoes.

             

            I've been using them since I got plantar fasciitis and they've really helped.
