By cross country coach

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

Thank you Asics. The DS trainer 15 is yet another winner in the long line of DS trainers. Light, flexible, stable enough for most terrain, it feels maybe a bit firmer than the 14 which was also an exceptional shoe. Other than a more open mesh upper and maybe a bit more room in the toebox, it remains essentially unchanged from the previous model. I am 6'1, 180 and run about 40 miles per week. The DS trainer serves all my needs, even those 12-14 milers. I've been wearing the DS trainer on and off since its inception in the late 90's and always end up returning to it. It is just a great product. Thank you Asics for leaving this great shoe alone and not ruining it for the DS trainer faithful. It is the only shoe I will wear to run in.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

I put on these brand new trainers this morning for a 9 miler tempo workout in the pouring rain. The temperature was about 75~80 degrees with <5 mph wind. With my medium thickness Drymax ankle socks, I was expecting at least a minor hot spot, if not blisters, in the 100000% humidity downpour. However I was wrong - not a single irritation on both feet during and after the workout.

I need to admit that I was skeptical before paying for them; because I have small ankles and somewhat wide forefeet (kind of like Donald Duck, but not really) - and I did not enjoy the usual narrow fit of performance trainers, such as ASICS Gel Speedstar 4. However I was more wrong than ever for not picking up these shoes sooner when they were the Daily Treat. Albeit tight, these shoes do not choke my feet and rub on any specific spot to produce irritation. I got them in the same size as my usual ASICS trainers; and they feel fine. Mind you - they are indeed narrow and form-fitting unlike most mainstream trainers you may be used to. It's kind of like wrapping tapes or bandages on your feet; or wearing some tight compression socks - tight and light.

As for the cushioning and support - I find plenty of both in these shoes. I am 5'9 and weigh 140 lb, with extremely high arches and mild pronation on my dominant foot; and I can safely say that these shoes have as much cushioning and support as when my ASICS GT-2140 got 200 miles.

Now these shoes are light and fast. The DS Trainer 15 rides lower to the ground than the normal trainers; hence less wasted energy for you efficient runners out there. Consider this: DS Trainer 15 to GT-21xx is like Corvette to Hummer (not that I'm a fan of either car, but you get the analogy). If you are light; if you want to train or race faster; if you want to catch the grandpa in front of you; or even if you want to just pretend that you are any of the above, by all means get these blazing fast talaria (Greek winged shoes).

As far as the colors go, I am pretty satisfied with the lime green accent - not that I'll get ticketed by the fashion police when I run, nor do I care about how I pretty look when I ditch the dude with a perfectly matching running garb.

Obviously I have not put enough miles on these brand new shoes to offer a feedback in terms of durability. But I've heard pretty good reviews on them - so maybe I'll drop another review after I fully disintegrate the molecular structure of these shoes.

By David

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

Compared to the DS Trainer 14 the 15 has a slightly wider toebox, a slightly lower heel cup (less ankle chafing if you wear no-show socks), and noticeably firmer feel on the forefoot. Perfect improvements on what was already a very good shoe.

By armanijohnny

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

Great Job Asics! These shoes right out of the box I put on 20.17 miles on my first run in them. No chaffing, rubbing, or blisters at all. Probably not a great idea to run that distance in a new shoes but they worked out well. I tried the DS-Trainer 14 last year and it was to narrow for my wide feet but these had much more room in the toebox. Great cushion in the forefoot as well.

great shoe, good feel on the road or on the tread mill. ran 14 miler without discomfort, and it is easier to run on your forefoot, also notice less heal scuffing. shoe laces look off center, but i am sure there is a good reason for that. great buy.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

      This is my second pair of Asics DS Trainers, having owned a pair of DST14s previously. The DST15s are pretty much the same shoe with some minor cosmetic changes.

      Overall, this is a good lightweight trainer for short, uptempo workouts for runners who typically log most of their mileage in a stability shoe.

      My principle gripe with the DST15s has to do with the insufficient amount of forefoot cushioning. I ran my last marathon in the DST14s and was having severe pain in my forefoot on both feet by the 20M mark. I have had similar experience with the DST15s in marathon-specific workouts of up to 12M in my most recent training cycle.

      These shoes are great if you limit their use. These shoes shine for use on short up-tempo workouts, but, for me, just don't work for anything beyond 10K.

      The fit is true to length. The shoe is narrow in the forefoot. Very good pronation control for a lightweight trainer. Fair durability (~150 miles). Just not enough forefoot cushioning for this runner for anything beyond 10K.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 15 Running Shoe:

      I purchased these shoes from the local running shop, because I wanted to get a shoe that would allow me to run on my forefoot, and these definitly do the job, the heel is lower than a lot of other running shoes which I think is why they make such great mid-foot/fore-foot striking shoes.

      Lightweight and highly cushioned.

        Will soon purchase DS Trainer 16s, continuing a 16 year streak (started in 1995) of running almost exclusively in DS Trainers. The current shoes are my 40th pair, and I assume I've tried most, if not all of the versions ever produced (most more than once). To say I'm satisfied with DS Trainers is an understatement. I dread the day when Asics decides to cut this line. It is the ideal choice for any skill level runner.

          Being a heavier runner, I've gravitated to structure shoes like the Kayano which is a great shoe but a bit of a boat anchor. When I discovered the DS Trainer, I found a shoe that still provided good support but was considerably lighter. I use the DS Trainer for all my running now, both training and occasional Olympic tri's. Great shoe!

                Iuse the shoes for all my training and another pair for racing. They are fast enough for 5Ks but have enough cushion for a marathon. They are the only shoes I run in. Trail runs too!

                I use these shoes every day for running, they are a very good training shoe.They are a great lightweight performance shoe for the serious runner who is a mild over pronator.An area for improvement is the durability of the forefoot of the sole, this wears out as I am not a heel striker.Another area for improvement is the durability of the inner heel foam / fabric padding, this fabric wears through to the foam very quickly (after 200kms) and I have to get leather patches sewn in. A lot of runners develop caluses on the heel from constant friction.I live in New Zealand[...]

                  Had to adjust to this shoe after running in Kayanos and NB 1224 including strengthing calves. After initial transition, this became a nice shoe with enough support and cushion. I was initially concerned with snug forefoot but it did not become an issue. For me, this seems like a good shoe for transitioning to a minimalist shoe. Will consider purchasing again.

                    I run and am a triathlete. This shoe holds up well for a marathon but is fast enough for short sprints as well. It isn't a trail shoe but I run all my races in them and havne't had any problems. If you want one shoe for all your training and racing this is a great choice.

                        I love the Asics Gel-DS Trainer 15's for their versatility and simplicity. I use them for any kind of run from a long training run to a 5k race day shoe. They fit comfortably, ride light, and provide soft cushioned footing. Great for the athlete that appreciates 'free' forefoot-strike running but likes a little support on those longer runs. I have been injury free since the day I stepped into my first comfortably fast pair and haven't looked back since.

                        I run approximately 50 miles/week and have been running forever! DS/15's are among the best shoes I have had. They are an improved version of DS/14 and 13's. They are almost neutral with a small slant (6-7mm), forcing correct foot strike. They provide good response (e.g. somewhat stiffer than the super cushioned shoes out there). Their light weight makes them excellent racing shoes for distances beyond 10k. For shorter races I use DS-racers or racing flats. The only con I can think of is that they wear out relatively quickly. I used to get 400-450 miles out of other shoes, but these seem to wear out in 350-400 miles (that's 7-8 weeks!). Yet, shoes are cheaper than orthopedic surgeon bills.

                          great shoe, good feel on the road or on the tread mill. ran 14 miler without discomfort, and it is easier to run on your forefoot, also notice less heal scuffing. shoe laces look off center, but i am sure there is a good reason for that. great buy.

                          Great Job Asics! These shoes right out of the box I put on 20.17 miles on my first run in them. No chaffing, rubbing, or blisters at all. Probably not a great idea to run that distance in a new shoes but they worked out well. I tried the DS-Trainer 14 last year and it was to narrow for my wide feet but these had much more room in the toebox. Great cushion in the forefoot as well.

                          I purchased these shoes from the local running shop, because I wanted to get a shoe that would allow me to run on my forefoot, and these definitly do the job, the heel is lower than a lot of other running shoes which I think is why they make such great mid-foot/fore-foot striking shoes. Lightweight and highly cushioned.

                          These shoes rock! They have got phenomenal forefoot cushioning which is perfect if you are a midfoot or forefoot striker. They are very soft and gentle in the forefoot area.

                          Compared to the DS Trainer 14 the 15 has a slightly wider toebox, a slightly lower heel cup (less ankle chafing if you wear no-show socks), and noticeably firmer feel on the forefoot. Perfect improvements on what was already a very good shoe.

                          Thank you Asics. The DS trainer 15 is yet another winner in the long line of DS trainers. Light, flexible, stable enough for most terrain, it feels maybe a bit firmer than the 14 which was also an exceptional shoe. Other than a more open mesh upper and maybe a bit more room in the toebox, it remains essentially unchanged from the previous model. I am 6'1, 180 and run about 40 miles per week. The DS trainer serves all my needs, even those 12-14 milers. I've been wearing the DS trainer on and off since its inception in the late 90's and always end up returning to it. It is just a great product. Thank you Asics for leaving this great shoe alone and not ruining it for the DS trainer faithful. It is the only shoe I will wear to run in.

                          I loved the 14's and these are just as good! Toebox is roomy, just enough cushion while not being too soft, and light enough to race or train in.
