Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2170 Running Shoe:

I have been an Asics fan ever since I blew out both feet to plantar fasciitis and was introduced to the 2140. Ever since the 2140 dissapeared I was not entirely happy with the 2150 or 2160 due to excessive heel slippage and lacing system putting too much presure on my instep atempting to compensate for the slippage. I have been waiting for Asics to correct these issues for years now and they have done a vey good job with the 2170. The tongue is more padded. The PHF padding is thicker creating a nice heel atmosphere and lacing system does not cause the tongue to dig in to the side of my foot. I have heard about the 10 mm heel drop but dont notice the difference. Dont be sucked into stocking up on the 2160. Go out and try this bad boy on. I was sold in 5 minutes when it usually took me 2 hours of indecision, driving the salesmen crazy and lots of hesitation due to Asics past mistakes. I still miss the 2140 but after 3 models later Asics has finally returned the same feel and made it even better! Good job Asics!!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2170 Running Shoe:

    As I stated above,I realised years ago that if you find the "Correct" item that enables you to preform or compliments your goals, STICK WITH IT & DO NOT THINK THAT
    A NEW PRODUCT IS BETTER.When I stated above that I had already purchased 6
    pairs of the GT-2170 over a 5 year period,I realise that ASICS is not manufacturing this model so I have purchased 2 pair that are in my closet. I enjoy putting on the
    GT-2170's after wearing loafers or oxfords and take a walk of jog. My wife thinks it
    Is the fact that they look & feel very good,the main thing is that they my body to relax
    While wearing them.

          I run 6 days a week; average mileage per week is between 40 and 45 miles. This is the third purchase of two pairs of the 2170s and I have been impressed with the durability, lasting support and overall performance of this shoe. I rotate my shoes which I know has extended their lives. However this is a shoe that even if not rotated is one you can count on getting in excess of 400 miles out of. For the runner looking for an ideal stability shoe this is a shoe you can count on to be dependable for training and racing.

            Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2170 Running Shoe:

            What a surprise to find these shoes available, after disappointing 2000 and 2000-2 models. The 2170 is the most successful model ASICS has produced. It has no flaws. The fit is perfect right out of the box, feeling comfortable and inspiring you to perform, work out or whatever you want to do. I am a fitness pro, working for a major national club. I am in the Gym five days a week, sometimes six and my feet do not get tired. Running, walking or in my case mostly working out and teaching classes. The cushioning is superb with just the right amount of support and unobtrusive pronation control. Knowing from past experience that there will be change for the sake of it, I purchased four, yes four (4) pairs – two in red and two in blue. I use one for street walking and the rest rotate working at the Gym. I never walk out on the street with my "Gym" shoes. They all stay in pristine condition. I just wish ASICS will designate the 2170 a classic and continue to offer them to the "die hard gym rats". I have no doubt that 2170 will remain a best seller, ever. Right now I am about to order my fifth pair from The RoadRunerSports.

              I am an instructor, working for LA fitness in South Florida. Asics have been my preferred shoe because they are made for professionals, both athletes and fitness pros. The 2170 is the best I have experienced, perfect fit right out of the box, good support and excellent cushioning. 2150/2160 were a bit of disappointment. I also liked the 1150, a light, all around very good shoe for the gym, walking and training. However, the 2170 are tops. I bought four (4) pairs – I have walking/running and gym shoes, which are like brand new. Too bad Asics acted like GM and changed for the sake of change to an inferior shoe the 2000 series.

                              I run 60-70 miles a week on pavement/dirt/trails and I have only worn Asics for the last 18 years. I started off with the GT-2110 and have moved through to the GT-2170 as they discontinued the earlier models. I don't have any complaints and haven't had any injuries. If you are looking for a good performing shoe at a decent price, then consider the GT-2170. Paying more for the other models is just fluff I found I don't need.

                              I love my 2170s. Asics does tend to tweak their shoes a bit too much, so when I find a great fitting pair, I usually stock up. The 2000 is a great example. That toe box and fit are terrible, thus the newer, better fitting GT-2000-2. The Asics GT series has been in my closet since the 1990s. My only complaint is the hels wear out on mine with less than 350 miles. Older versions would get me closer to 450-480 miles, and I alternate days with these shoes to extend the life. All in all, a great shoe, with the GT-2010, GT-2080 and GT-2160 still my favorites. I would wear the Kayano but for the number of shoes I go through per year and the cost!

                                I have been wearing Asics stabilty shoes for almost 30 years. I have always had a model from the 2XXXX series. They keep changing the numbers, and reviewers keep saying things are different this time, but from a real runner's experience, it's the same shoe. I guess you have to change something to keep an old favorite fresh. At least it wasn't any of the features.

                                  I was looking for a show to replace my old runners that I wore out. My old pair were a slightly older model of Asics and they were good to me. I wanted to get something similar and am very happy with this pair. They offer the arch support and stability I need and are comfortable to wear as I run. I'll probably get the same pair to replace these when they wear out.

                                    I had great success with the Kayano 18, but the Kayano 19 was not anywhere near as durable, the heel wore down in a month and ahalf. So I was looking for a replacement and decided to try the GT2170. It is close to the Kayano 18 so far but not quite there.

                                    For one thing I had to go up 1/2 size from normal, so they run small. It also is stiffer feeling and had to break it in walking before running, as it was really stiff. So far it has worn well, but only had it for a month. It has similar AHAR heel as the Kay 18 did so hope it is good.

                                      I use these shoes for running, and weightlifting. They are quite comfortable and supportive. They breathe well, so your feet don't get too hot. This is my second pair.

                                          Bought these shoes in 2011 in preparation for a Half Marathon. They fit true to size and provided great cushioning on hard asphalt. I'm sad to see them go.

                                          Like any narrow width shoe, my only complaint about them is the lack of variety. If you have a narrow width foot, you know what I'm talking about when it comes to shoes...blue/white is your only color choice.

                                          If you can still find this shoe it's great for a novice runner who's putting mid-mileage on them each week. I haven't raced in them since 2012, but I can tell they've long since lost the cushioning for long runs. They held up well and work great as a normal street sneaker. I'll have to switch over to lawn mower duty soon though and get some of those lightweight NBs.

                                            I've always ran in Kayanos, but was looking for something a little cheaper. I have put over 200 miles on these shoes now, and have not one complaint! I train @ 30mpw at a 7:45-8:15/mile pace. Working towards a fall marathon, and these shoes have been wonderful, even for my 16+ mile long runs.

                                                My feet have high arches, a narrow heel, and they slightly pronate. The first pair of 2000 Series running shoes I wore were 2050's. They were the best fitting shoes I've ever worn. However, the difference in feel between 2050's, 2060's, and the 2070's is negligible. My feet enjoy the snug fit on the ankles, the unobtrusive arch support, and the cushioned feel from the gels. My feet, knees, and hips enjoy the pronation correction. At Roadrunner's price point you can't get a better shoe.

                                                Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2170 Running Shoe:

                                                I bought the Ascics GT-2170 based on the the reviews. The reviews were right on as far as the ride and feel of the shoe. The shoe's upper wore out with in six months. I normally wear the sole out before the upper. I also rotate my foot wear daily so the upper should have lasted a bit longer by my expectations. I wore out the side of the shoe. It did not appear to be a fault in design. The material just wore out.

                                                  Run almost daily, 3 - 8 miles, on the Prairie Path exclusively. Great fit, super light, great upgrade for the 2110 stock that I finally ran out of. Just a super ride.
