    Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2160 Running Shoe:

    I'm a 138 pound 1/2 marathon runner training 20-25 miles/week. I have a pronation issue and low arches so I need the support of a stability shoe. After researching the offerings, I purchased the Asics GT2160, Nike Air Structure, and Brooks GTS 11 for a trial. The Asics won the trial hands down. It has the perfect combination of pronation control and arch support while providing a nice cushioned ride. There was zero break in period. I bought them on Friday and ran 14 on Saturday..no fuss no muss. They also offer several widths in this color. I bought the 2E and it worked out great.

    I had been a charter Nike fan for years, but Asics has won me over.

    A Big Improvement On The 2150 .....

    Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2160 Running Shoe:

    The 2160 is a huge improvement on the 2150 and marks a return to the performance of the 2140. The 2140 was a great shoe and it's a shame that Asics dropped the ball so badly with the 2150, like other runners I felt they lost all the character and feel/cushion that makes the 2100s so popular. The 2160 clearly rectifies that situation, the midsole cushion and responsiveness has returned, although I will say they seem to be a little narrower in the heel that before. I take the 2E width and it seems a reasonable fit, a few more millimetres would help though. I have bought two pairs of this shoe already! Needless to say, I didn't do this with the 2150 ...

      I recently ditched trusted Kayano for 2160, and never look back. I thought Kayano was best for my feet, but after I wore Kayano15 for a month I felt I was missing something. I asked around and was recommended 2160 for my daily run. What a world of difference it has made. They are cushy and supportive. Only beef is the choice of color, how come Asics only make 4E width in ugly white shoes? All cool crazy colors are only for narrow feet, come on Asics, try something more FUN!

      I use these to run on the street. Run about 3x/week and a total of 12-15 miles/week. I ran the Super Spartan Race with the GT2150's finished strong. With my custom orthotics, it's an absolutely perfect fit for my feet. Now training for the Tough Mudder. Looking forward to more training, more fun with my Asics.

          I run 5-7 miles a day. I have very narrow feet, so usually I have to buy "what fits" not a specific shoe for my running stlye. 2160's are perfect for my running style. I've worn them for several years because they actually do have narrow sizes (unlike other shoe's "narrows") and they are great shoes...well cushioned and great support for my high arches. I've tried other brands/models, but always come back to these.

            I use my Asics to run about 2 miles every day, and they could not be better for it. They are lightweight and breathable, and yet cushion perfectly. I have a slight overpronation, but they provide the best support for it. I haven't had them for long, but I can tell that they'll last.

              Been running in the GT series since the 2120. I had two pair of those and loved them. The 2140 was OK, the 2130 and the 2150 were cra p. The 2150s gave me shin problems the whole time. I just chaulked it up to trying to increase my mileage too fast. (they were still giving me problems right up until I replaced them). I bought the 2160s and they are GREAT no shin pain at all. Had them 3 weeks and did a 1/2 marathon in them. My feet didnt give me a bit of trouble. Great come back for the 21(even number)0 series.

                    As an avid runner who likes being outside and running on hard surfaces, I continually seek out shoes that have great support and excellent cushioning. These shoes are quite possibly the best I've had the chance to use in several years. The shoes are well balanced, do not feel heavy or cumbersome and have worn very well. I've also used them for running on trails and tread mills and found the traction on all surfaces very solid. Overall I've been extremely satisfied with the GT-2160 and my only regret is that I should have purchased 4 pairs instead of two.

                          I have been running in Asics for 14 years the 2140 may have been the best shoe in this line and Asics has gone back to that great fit in the 2160 the shoe has a roomy toe box with a snug fit in the heal and forefoot to prevent slippage. Although, the shoe fits snugly they don't feel too tight or restrictive. The sole has comfortable cushioning but still responsive and light. They fit so well I bought 2 more pair after only 100 miles so I will have shoes t last the year. Hopefully they don't change anything in the next release.

                          After wearing another brand and being dissatisfied, I returned to Asics. These were suggested to me by a local running store, and they are good shoes in many ways. They feel light, comfortable, and breathable on my feet. They don't seem heavy like the previous brand and model I was wearing. On the down side, the toe box seems tight. For my 180 pound, 50 year old frame, they don't seem to provide the cushioning that I need.

                          For many runners I believe these shoes would be excellent. For me, I'll probably go to something with more support and cushioning, such as the Asics Kayano.

                            Well, I have ran 9 marathons a number of 5 and 10Ks. I also have done two half IronMan Tris in the past. Last March I had knee surgery. I still can't run but I do PT and walk. I use to only wear Nike. Then I went to Mizuno then to Brooks then to NB, and stuff in between. I have vary narrow for a man. So I need to go BW. The Brooks seemeed the best. I have two folks also have narrow feet. But both of them love this shoe so I gave it a try. I can say so far I love it! Asics is a lot diffrent then when I first try them way better fit and feel. If you have narrow and low arch but don't need a MC shoe give this one a try. When I do get back to running I will check back in!

                            I have been a runner for many years and am very experienced. Out of the box the asics 2160 was very uncomfortable in the left toe box. I placed a stretcher in the shoe and the problem went away. I have used a heel orthotic for many years and within a 1/2 mile on the first run began to experience back pain. After healing I used a different orthotic (one not quite so high) and the pain did not return. Also, the plastic mid-sole made an annoying squeaking noise but that too went away with usage. Now I feel the shoe has become quite serviceable but not on the same level as the 2150 or the 2130. The 2140 was a disaster. I run about four to five times a week, four to six miles a run, outdoors all year in all conditions.

                            [...] When I tried on the 2160's, they felt pretty comfortable. I only ran with them 2 or 3 times, but started to notice that my third and fourth toes were started to bang and turn black. I then tried a half size smaller, but they were then too small. So, I had to return them.

                              I trained for my first marathon and bought the Brooks Adrenaline GTS-10 and these and they both were great, but I would say these had a slight edge on the Brooks.

                                  I used to run the GT series exclusively. I recently tried Nike Triax and liked the way I ran in them (seemed not to be slapping so much) but I almost immediately noticed the balls of feet getting sore especially as I increased my mileage. Switched back to GT-2160's and the soreness is slowly going away even as I increase my mileage to 1/2 marathon training distances. Also, I had to go up one full size to relieve blistering toes. I think Asics run pretty true to size but I suffered blistered toes in my normal size. The larger size feels a bit loose but so far a lot less trouble with blistered toes. My suggestion, stick to brand/styles that have proven to work for you, hence the "Old Reliable" label for the GT-2160's

                                  Great shoe for mild pronators. It's a bit on the heavy side at 11.75 ounces (for size 9) but that's in line with other trainers. Great looking shoe as well.

                                  I still do the bulk of my training in traditional shoes. When it comes to traditional trainers, these are a solid choice. From my perspective the best thing these shoes have going for them is they come in widths. They're lighter than most trainers and when new they provide a great, cushioned ride. These shoes outlast other trainers I have worn.

                                  It's not really fair to compare these shoes to the new minimalist shoes. Obviously trainers have a place in base building and these shoes are a great choice, but trainers are like the minivan parked next to the sports car in your garage. There's times when you need the minivan and you're glad you've got it, but when you're driving the minivan you're wishing you were driving the sports car. Yeah, I do most of my running in these trainers but when I do, I wish I were running in my minimalist shoes. I just wish someone would make the minimal shoes in widths.

                                    Have used 2150s and loved them, so bought an extra pair of 2160s to alternate with. These are great shoes to run in. Enjoyed their comfort and durability so much, I convinced my wife to try the women's 2160 and she loves them as well.
                                    For me, bought 1/2 size up and were perfect.

                                      This Asic 2100 range is great for those that want a well made, long wearing, good value running shoe. The features and performance of the 2100 range continue to provide me with predictable and reliable fit and service.

                                        Last year I switched from Asics to Mizuno and ended up with shin splints and pain in my forefoot. I heard great things about the GT-2160 and after running 100 miles I am sold that these are the best stability shoes on the market. I have had foot problems with my metatarsal in recent years and so far no problems. They fit great in the heel and provide good cushioning for pavement runs. You won't be disappointed.

                                          Asics made some good improvements over the 2150 making the 2160 more like the 2140 which was a very solid shoe. Biggest improvement was in the toe box which provides more lateral stability and keep the foot from sliding from side to side.
