      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Landreth 5 Running Shoe:

      During my high school running career, I have used a number of shoes which have hurt my feet and given me injuries, even if they worked well during workouts. I am so glad that a visiting expert on running shoes told me to get a shoe like the Landreth, which supported my feet just enough but were also good for training. I would recommend these to anyone who has a rather low arch and would like to stay injury free in breathable shoes.

        I love the landreths started running in them after my first half. I needed something with a little more room in the toe box. they are not as cushioned as some shoes but are light and fast and a good trainer. I have ran a full in them and 5 halfs. I do buy them a half size bigger.

            This is a great shoe. I have been running in the landreth for years since the first model came out. For any long distance runner with a neutral foot I would recommend this shoe. It has about a 500 mile life. The netting on the outside of the shoe breaks down before the sole or the last. Its flexible and light and feels great on the road.

            Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Landreth 5 Running Shoe:

            I have worn Landreth for almost 5 years now, and I've never had problems with them until now. They have been the most comfortable running shoes that I've ever worn. I bought the 5's online, and I haven't been very pleased. They are stiff and hard on my feet, even with the over-the-counter orthotics that I use. If my 4's didn't have so many miles on them, I'd switch back to them.

            Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Landreth 5 Running Shoe:

            I think the 4 was the best version of this shoe. That said, the 5 is very good, and a much better shoe for my feet and frame than most other shoes. Lightweight, flexible, but enough cushioning for longer runs. I hope the Landreth is a shoe that ASICS keeps in it's line-up for a long time.

            I have run in Landreths for many years and absolutely loved them. I was sad when the 5 model came out but still faithfully bought them. However, after several weeks (40-50 miles/week) I developed severe shin splints-a teammate of mine had a similar problem with this model. The landreths were great until model 5. I've switched to cumulus 11 with average results, I'd love to see the old Landreths reinstated.

            I think the 4 was the best version of this shoe. That said, the 5 is very good, and a much better shoe for my feet and frame than most other shoes. Lightweight, flexible, but enough cushioning for longer runs. I hope the Landreth is a shoe that ASICS keeps in it's line-up for a long time.

            I have to disagree with Jean. I loved the Landreth 4, but my heels are slipping in the 5, and it feels a little clunkier. Not a good update in my opinion.

            I loved the Landreth 3, but was very disappointed with the 4. I am very happy with the 5. Good fit and comfortable.
