A Blast from the Past

By Leonard

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

I ran exclusively in DS Trainers for over twenty years . . . Then, a few years back ASICS started "tweaking" them, and I no longer found them my running shoe of choice . . . About the same time, I began a rather drawn out process to resolve some cardiac issues . . . Well, the old ticker settled down, and I started back to running regularly a few months ago and thought I'd give the Trainers another go . . . Good decision . . . While they seem a bit narrower than I remember, the overall feel from the past was there . . . I hope ASICS leaves them alone for a few cycles, because its nice to have my old friend back . . .

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

I've worn this shoe for years & years
At least the earlier models the current
One ds trainer 22 ha some characteristics
Of other years, light, responsive, great traction
But this model seemed to wear out after
Few hundred miles and started leaning in
On left shoe bothering my planter facia

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

    I have worn every version of the shoe. With the 65-70 miles a week I put in they last me about 3 month before needing another pair. I like the new flyte foam technology instead of the Gel cushioning system and I was hoping the shoe would last longer but it seems to hold up the same. This version of the shoe is great but wish they had more color options like traditional Asics

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

      I have worn almost every version of the DS trainer. Best overall shoe I've ever had. The new 22 is a miss. The ride is good but the shoe is so narrow now that it cramps your toe. I don't have a wide foot either.
      Disappointed to have to return them.

      Purchased shoes one week before a marathon and put 20 miles on them. Ran the marathon in these with no problems. No blisters and no rubbing. Finished 4 seconds over my personal record for a marathon. Love the shoes. The fit was great right out of the box.

      Ds Trainers has very nice updates

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

      nice ride for me reminds me of some of the older models of ds trainers that I always had as my shoe of choice.
      Light, responsive a little support and great traction on the roads. Wore it at a 15k race on Sunday
      Felt great on a hilly course for me but I'm a forefoot striker.

      Much different fit than previous versions

      By William

      from undisclosed

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

      I ran Ironman Hawaii in DS-Trainer V3-- so I'm old. The DS Trainer has been my go to shoe for 20 years. There have only been one or two misses and unfortunately for me #22 is a big miss. It is much narrower, has too much added stability (hurt my arch instantly) and I could tell that the toe seam was going to give me a blister. I made one loop around the kitchen and sent them back.

      If the shoe fits, then it is for you. Unfortunately the fit has drastically changed and now I'm looking for a new shoe.

      With all that said, this is why you shop at road runner and their no hassle return policy. You would never get that from a store.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 22 Running Shoe:

      I've been running in DS Trainers for 25 years. The 22 is great. Past DSs ran 1/2 to 1 size large. These were 1/2 size large at most. I'm glad they choose subdued colors this time unlike former neon colored shoes.
