>Gears and Wears>Light AND Cushioned
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.
They come in pretty colors
Ask for the Gel Noosa
Running is stupid
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.
