Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

I wore the brooks shoe for a while. Then i tried the Landreth 4's! I never have had sooo much comfort for my feet, my knees and my heel!!! I go threw 2 pars of shoes every 3 months!! One for speed and one for distance i use the landresths for distance!!! And they are an amazing shoe!! I cant wait for the 5's!!!

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

I've worn 3 pairs of Landreth 2s, 2 pairs of landreth 3's and put 500 miles on each with no problems. Just got rid of my pair of Landreth 4s after 300 miles, they had no where near the cushioning and of the prior models. I moved up to the Nimbus, which are better (maybe too much cushion).

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

These are not too soft. Just right. Good transition. I would give them 5 stars, but I don't like gel; it's heavy, unstable, soft and squishy. I wish asics would make some shoes without gel.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

5'9", 154, 50 miles/wk. My first pair of Landreths - so far they're great for me. I like the firmer midsole. Have run in Nimbus which was extremely comfortable but too soft and heavy for my taste. I did the no-no of going 18 miles on my first run in the Landreths but had no problems.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

If these shoes are just an unposted pair of 2130s why are so many reviews negative, while the 2000 series is hailed as the greatest ever? I have never worn Landreths, but was interested until reading all of this negative feedback. I have had a couple of pair of Nimbus, but it is just too much shoe for me. Any suggestions?

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

6-2 and 200lbs, 50 miles a week -used both 3 and 4 - the shoe is the ultimate comfort for me - light, plenty of cushion - but I am more of a toe striker and the front sole wore out very quickly thus 4 stars instead of 5

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

Been running in the Cumulus for years, was talked into trying the Landreth saying they had just as much Cushioning as the Cumulus. I must say they're a pretty comfortable shoe. The toebox is plenty wide, but personally, I could use a little more cushioning in the heel. I run about 40 mile per week. I have not had a chance to try the new Cumulus 10.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

I am 5'10" and 150 lbs. and run 40 miles a week.
I have run in the Landreth 3's for about 2 years and love them. The Landreth 4 was stiff and actually hurt the arh of my foot.
I now have tendonitis and since I have never had any foot problems before I have to assume this shoe is the problem.
I am going to buy as many Landreth 3's that I can find and will have to find another shoe when they are gone.
This shoe may work for some but not for me.

By Max

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

This shoe is a stable, neutral trainer. I'm 5'6", 155lbs, and run 50-70 miles per week. I'm a front of heel or midfoot striker depending on how loose my legs are. There's not a ton of heel cushioning here, but the design of the shoe is such that it encourages a fast transition to the forefoot, which is VERY well cushioned. Essentially, you will land on your heel but put most of your weight on your forefoot. Also, there are almost no overlays on the to box, which allows for maximum ventilation and minimal blistering. Good shoe for those with good mechanics.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

Overall a great neutral shoes. A little over cushioned in rear in comparison with landreth 1. Upper is greatly improved with very comfy and ventilated fit. Stability is not as good as landreth 1. The controversial solyte seems more resilient than SPEVA and is expected to last longer.

Usually lean toward light stability/ cushion. The fit & plushenss of this shoe were nice but the midfoot to heel area was really hard on impact and caused knee pain for me.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Landreth 4 Running Shoe:

Fine shoe that continues to meet my expectations. Toe box is minimally larger and toe material better. More responsive than L2,L3. I've gone through several pair of L2,L3,now L4. I like them all .. probably L4 best.

2 stars for a greatly improved fit. Otherwise, the solyte midsole is awful. I've given these 40 miles over the course of a rest week and I'm a neutral runner. My body is a wreck. This shoe with speva would be a winner.

Just picked these up two days ago and they are very comfortable. If you have a wide foot and are a neutral runner these shoes will work for you. The rear is very cushioned and the front toebox is large. The front mesh is like a/c for your feet.
