By Wendy

from Undisclosed

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Evolution 4 Running Shoe:

I'm a severe overpronater, I have flat feet, prone to plantar faciatis, and I'm fairly heavy. I'm hard on shoes, and my feet often ache. These shoes are incredible. They're sturdy, correct my gait comfortably. There's enough padding to eliminate the pounding, but are not too squishy. Usually my foot forces the shoes to adapt to their poor shape, but these shoes pushed back, keeping my foot in line, and I no longer need my orthotics, as the shoe doesn't need it (and is more comfortable with the original insole in place). I had no problems with blistering. The 1/2 size up advice is correct, and I'm glad I ordered up.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Evolution 4 Running Shoe:

I am a big fan of Nike running shoe. I decided to switch it up and go with an Asics brand. I heard from a friend and through reputation they were great running shoe. But I did not like this shoe.I am a long distance runner .It didn't provide me the foot support I wanted. I have low arches and founded that trying to break the shoe in, in the two weeks running in them cause me constant foot pains and blisters on my toes.

    I'm an overpronater too and these shoes were the answer to my prayers. I suffered from shin splints and realized I needed more stability. Just finished my first 1/2 marathon in Indy in my Asics Evolutions and had NO pain the entire race. Thank you!! A life-time Asics Gel runner!

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Evolution 4 Running Shoe:

    I love these shoes. I had the Evolution 3s and these are even better. I had bought a pair of Brooks Ariel 10s first only because the Evolution 4s were out of stock. I ended up with really bad shin splints. I returned them to Roadrunner and got my Evolution 4s. They fit perfectly, no problems at all.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Evolution 4 Running Shoe:

    I had worn 1130s for years, but felt like the 1140 wasn't supportive enough, so I switched to this shoe. I actually got really bad blisters at first, and it took them longer to callus over than usual. But apparently it was worth it, because if I look down at my feet while I'm running, I am not overpronating anymore. Overall: great support, and once broken it, very comfortable.

    By Sam

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Evolution 4 Running Shoe:

    This is my first pair of Evolutions; I previously alternated the Kayano, Trance, and Equalon (all with orthodic inserts). The Evolution beats these other shoes (with the inserts) hands down. It felt like a clunky shoe the first few times I used it, not very flexible, but I am more used to it now. I didn't have any problems with blisters or fit. The Evolution has solved my overpronation problem in a way I never thought possible, I don't know why I waited so long! (well, actually I do, when I tried them on in the past they felt too clunky--but that's the support and control overpronators need!) Highly recommended for overpronators.
