    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Pulse 2 Running Shoe:

    Improved over the first Pulse with better forefoot cushioning. Excellent heel toe transition and firm enough to be responsive (Cumulus and Nimbus especially are too soft). Shoe is deep enough to accomodate orthotics. Sorry to see this turn up as "endangered". Not a race shoe, but this is the best trainer I've used - any make or model.Run 35 miles/week, 3:12 marathon.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Pulse 2 Running Shoe:

      I have only run on these twice now. My first run was a 10K here in town and they seemed fast. Fit is good, but it could have a bit more arch support for my high arch feet. Cushioning does not appear quite as good as my old faithful Adidas Boston Classics. But, they seem pretty good overall.

        No break-in time. Ready to go straight out of the box. I'm a high school XC and track runner and needed a new trainer that didn't cost too much since I have several pairs of shoes at one time. I usually wear Asics for training but this is the first time I tried these.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Pulse 2 Running Shoe:

          After a surgery and slow recovery from a torn meniscus earlier this year, I had all but resigned myself to a life without running. After just a few runs, my new Gel Pulse 2's have provided me with both the cushioning and the stability to hit the road again 2 to 3 times a week without re-injuring my knee.

            I bought these as my first real pair of running shoes since I'm training for my first half marathon. They fit a little loose in the heel, but they're very stably and have a wide toe section. There's too much cushion for speed training, but it's perfect for long run days. They flow a lot of air and keep my feet dry.
