Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 12 Running Shoe:

Great shoe for stability and dealing with over-pronation. I am a tall heavy runner (about 200 lbs.) and have rigid orthotics to correct for severe over-pronation. These shoes work great for me.

Great shoes

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 12 Running Shoe:

I am 6'2" and 270 lbs. I also have an inherited complete ankle collapse and therefore wear full-foot orthotics. I have tried MANY different shoes to work with the orthotics to support my ankles. These are possibly the best shoe for this I have ever worn. The sole is solid and rigid enough to provide actual support. The rise is between 8mm and 10mm, so it is not like so many types of NB and Brooks that have a 12mm to 14mm toe-to-heel rise. I am able to comfortably jog on the front half of my foot without strain. The toe box is spacious. They are totally worth the investment.

    Bought this shoe to wear with my Brooks Beast, and have to say I really love it. I'm 6', 200lb, and it held up much longer than the Beast, had good cushioning and support, and was a much better value. I think this is the shoe I"ll buy from now on.

    Shoe is a great value for a motion control shoe. Last four pairs of shoes have been
    Brooks Beast 14 models! These shoes are lighter and a bit softer. Will see how
    they hold up. Definitely take a look!!

    While winter's doldrums still have me mostly indoors at this point, the shoes are performing well as an all-round cross-training foundation. I'm looking forward to REAL spring and the opportunity to hit the road (and trails) again!

    I bought these shoes for my husband and he absolutely loves them. He is 6'5" 300 lbs, and he played football through college resulting in foot problems and multiple aches and pains, so having good shoes is extremely important.

    By Jeffrey

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 12 Running Shoe:

    My shoes were great, delivery was on time, but alas after wearing them twice they were stolen from a break in from my car.
    I attempted to repurchase from Road Runner sports but my size was out of stock.
    Unfortunately for Road Runner sports I found them on line from another company in the size I needed so not only did they have them in stock when RR sports did not, but they were 10 dollars cheaper.
    I learned a bit if a lesson here. I need to become a better shopper on line. The theft and resulting stock out opened my eyes a bit. As the value was less then the deductible on my homeowners policy I had to refinance the repurchase myself.

      After years and years of running 50+ miles/wk. on various surfaces my left foot arch collapsed and it became too painful to run in a normal arched shoe. The ASICS Foundation has been the only shoe that allows me to continue running pain free.

      The AHA campaign is a truly excellent cause, and I hope Road Runner Sports continues to support it. The ASICS GEL-Foundation 12 shoes are comfortable and supportive but the soles are wearing through very quickly.

        Great shoe for a big runner

        By AmericanFool

        from Boulder, Colorado

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 12 Running Shoe:

        6'1" 270lbs, 15 mi/wk. Mild pronator, natural toe-strike when younger, but now it's kind of mid foot since I'm old and heavy. Purchased at local store. Great shoe - conforming heel, nice wide toebox, good support and cushioning. Given my weight & the fact I run on concrete mostly, more cushioning would be welcome - but I think this is as good as it gets, a lot of people are turned off by heavier shoes so the next step up is a boot! I'm exploring insoles next.
