The Asics GT2000 5 is for the higher mileage runner looking for structured cushioning and support. It features a FluidRide midsole for bounce-back and cushioning. An added stitch-down toecap enhances durability and forefoot support. Take a look at the Nike Zoom Structure 20 as an alternative.
True, it does feel a little heavier than many Asics shoes, but it also promises plenty in terms of cushioning and stabilty. The flexibility is good, the midsole looks more than adequate, which has you interested if you’re a high mileage runner looking for comfort and support.
There’s plenty going on under your feet, but in an unobtrusive sort of way. The thing that really stands out is the support provided; there’s a great stable fit around your heel and the shoe does as it promises in turns of controlling pronation. It’s not a solid unforgiving environment, more a cushioned performance world thanks to the FluidRide construction, a midsole that is extremely shock absorbingAn important addition is the fact Asics have put SpEVA on top of its Solyte foam for cushioning that doesn’t just sink under your stride. This works well with Asics Gel which is under the forefoot and heel. Early days suggest the durability is good as is the 10mm heel to toe drop which is a number easy to get on with for just about every runner.
A comfortable breathable environment that holds your feet in place – as it should in a stability shoe.
There are all sorts of stability shoes out there some more suited to today’s expectations than others; this checks plenty of boxes as a good high mileage, supportive shoe that will last the rounds.
