    I average 20 to 30 miles a week, but I'm not a small person as I weigh about 215. These shoes are lightweight yet durable enough to hold up to the pounding I give them. They are extremely comfortable and don't even really require a breaki period. This is the 3rd pair I've bought and I keep going back.

      These were recommended to me by the online support for use during CrossFit training. I think if I had picked these out myself in the store, I would have passed. They feel barely there, and I like to have some cushioning under my feet.

      But after more than a week of use (7 workouts), I think they will work for me. I've yet to do a long run in them, but they've been great for CrossFit and Army PT.

      Okay, I use these primarily in the gym and for everyday walking to and from campus. Although I love the lightness, once my feet start to sweat its unbelievable how lacking in ventilation these shoes are. My shoes were soaked on an 85 degree day in the sun. None of my other asics ever felt like this. Swampy I must say.

      Shoe looks great, feels great. Noticeably light weight. Lacks in cushioning in my opinion. I'm a 70 miler a week runner, so I'm kind of picky with my shoes. Would be great for shorter distances, just not daily 10+ milers.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Lyte33 2 Running Shoe:

      This is my go-to shoe for when my feet are a bit achy from running in my barefoot style shoes (I usually run in Vibrams and/or NB Minimus 1010MT). Sometimes after several days/weeks running in no-cushion shoes, my feet want a vacation from impacts. Pulling out the Lyte-33 is like running on clouds, but without the intrusive nature of normal running shoes. This shoe allows me to run as I naturally do, without interfering with my stride. I'd highly recommend this to minimalists who know what they like and don't want medial posts or EVA messing up their stride or strike mechanics. As a lightweight and low structure shoe, I assume they might wear out pretty quick, but this does not pose a problem for me because as a barefooter, I will continue to use them after the midsole compresses down.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Lyte33 2 Running Shoe:

        I am a huge fan of the Kinvara line of shoes, these are very similar in weight and flexibility but seem to be a decent amount softer. Not sure how long they will hold up but so far they aren't showing any signs of premature wear. I am using these in my marathon training and have gone 10 miles at once in them, have about 40 total miles on them and they haven't given me any blisters or hot spots. Lightweight, cool and comfy, these may end up being on my feet for the 26.2 but not willing to say that 100% just yet. If you are a neutral runner looking for something light but cushioned this is a solid pick.

        This is a great shoe for short runs, less than 10 miles, but do not try to go on a long. Anything longer than 10 miles, your ankles will hurt. Overall shoes are light and great for fast runs. For sprint workouts these shoes would be great. So I went back to Asics Cumulus 15.

            I have been running the the Saucony Pro Grid Kinvaras since I first got into running about 2 years ago. Up until the recent release of the 4 they were my favorite shoe, hands down. With the release of the 4 they made the heel come up higher than previous models which caused me to get blisters. I thought it would past but ended up not being able to deal with it any more.

            Previously I had tried the Gel-Lyte 33 1 and knew from putting them on in the store they were not for me. When I returned the Kinvara 4's I was hesitant when the sales person brought these out. Once I tried them on I loved the way they felt, fit like a glove!! First run in them and I was 100% sold. They fit great and are super comfortable with enough cushioning for longer runs but light enough for short runs. Have not done any races in them yet but will be doing a few shortly. This was my second pair of these I purchased, I loved the first pair so much I ordered this pair so I could alternate between the two. I highly recommend these for anyone who likes a lightweight shoe that still has enough padding for the long runs, have several high teens runs done in these and never get fatigue in my feet.

            I bought these to replace my Brooks pure flows that were wearing out. I based my selection on positive comments on this site. I previously wore Asics gel blurr 33's and was very happy with them for 5k runs. I walked a few miles in the gel lyte's and did a 5k run and was generally dissapointed in the lack of cushioning in the forefoot and the lack of stability in the heel. I am a 60 year old male who runs 2-3 times a week for 3-5 kms. I will be going back to the Brooks pure flow which to me had better stability and better cushioning in a light weight shoe that is excellent for a forefoot running style.

                Good replacement for
                the Nike Skylon, which should be resurected. My second pair of Gel-Lyte 33's. Soles wear fairly
                quickly, but a great shoe, nonetheless.

The shoes move with my feet and that is definitely a plus. I did develop various aches and pains however mostly on the bottom of my feet. The Gel Lyte33's are cushioned mostly in the midfoot area it seems but they don't have as much cushion as the Brooks Pureflow 2 that I've been running in. Also, for the first time I had a toenail on my right foot bruise and now on it's way to black. I've been running a long time and this is the first time it happened to me. Also, the left shoe seems to want to rub the top of my foot near my big toe. I'll continue to run in them and switch back and forth because there are a lot of features I like but they will require me getting used to them.

                      Have ran in shoes a few times now seem to be pretty good shoes. With my arch supports they are very comfortable and I have not got shin splints so far so that's a huge plus.

                            Love the shoes.
                            I use then for running, bicycling, and working out at the gym. They feel like they are a great fit with the occasional moment when they seem a little big but not enough to hinder my exercise.

                            It took quite a while to get them though, due to the empolyees socializing with each other. I tried to get their attention without being rude, but i was met with no success. Then another employee came out from the back room and helped me right away. I have worked in retail for twelve years, its easy to spot the employees who are their because they like their job and the ones who are just their to collect a paycheck. I think every company has their share of both.

                              I run an average of 14-25 pavement miles per week, sometimes everyday depending on how I feel and the weather. I wanted to migrate from a heavier, support type shoe (Asics 2170) to something lighter, to see if it would make a difference for me, without losing too much needed cushioning. I'll soon be 67 and apparently my knees have realized that much sooner than my brain so I've been working on my form, including of course my strike to try to reduce the impact. I fully expected this shoe to fail in that regard but I was completely surprised. The shoe is light, extremely comfortable, and while I am more connected to the pavement than with the 2170's, I can feel the gel absorbing much of the impact. It just feels fantastic! I was so impressed, I decided to order another pair to alternate with, and then, at the last minute, ordered a pair of Saucony Kinvara 4's, thinking they may be better still. I'm not disappointed with the Kinvara 4, but to me, they aren't as comfortable in the heel area as the ASICS GEL-Lyte33 2's are. At the end of a run, I have a little redness where the upper portion of the heel of the shoe contacts my sock. There is no padding there on the Kinvara 4 where there is on the ASICS. I have no problems at all with the ASICS...comfortable the whole way and from the time I first put them on. All that to say, I may keep the Kinvara 4's, but I'll replace them with another pair of ASICS GEL-Lyte 33's. So far, it's just the best thing I've ever had on my feet.

                                  Love em'! I wanted to try something more light weight for racing. I just love these and perfect for me to run races (so far 5K's and 5 miles). Definitely feel lighter on my feet than my trainers! I also liked the Brooks Cadence but went with these because they had slightly thicker sole. I wanted a little more support for my pronation though I've learned more on my forefoot! Great racing shoe!

                                    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Lyte33 2 Running Shoe:

                                    Bought the Gel Lyte a couple of weeks ago for the OC marathon. I am 55 and have run over 80 marathons. Have not used a racing flat in years due to foot issues. Normal training shoe is the Nike Volmero. Bought the Gel Lyte because I was attempting to qualify for Boston at OC.

                                    Pleasantly surprised with the comfort of the shoe during the race. Feet were no more beat up than they would have been had I raced in my Volmero's. Would not use it as an everyday trainer as I think it would break down rather quickly. Great racing shoe though.

                                      This shoe reminds me somewhat of the Gel-lytes that used to be available but were dropped eventually in favor of DS Trainers. Nothing wrong with the DS trainers but I am very happy with the Gel-lyte 33 2's. I've been running for about 36 years and probably have logged around 40,000 plus miles. Don't change anything on the new Gel-lyte 33 2's as they are perfect for my running form!

                                        I am transitioning from a stability thick heeled shoe to a more neutral lightweight shoe and this shoe is awesome. My stride and foot landing is so much more natural. These shoes feel like a feather and yet have all the support I need. Really glad I bought these and I look forward to more natural running!

                                          Finally I found a shoe that just feels great to run in. The Asics Gel Lyte 33 2 has a perfect fit and I run much faster in these shoes then any other shoe I have worn. I have had these shoes for a few weeks and can't wait to run every day in them.

                                            AS a sworn Asics fan, was really eager to try this shoe. They really are nice on the foot, lightweight and comfortable.
                                            Difinately great shoe for gym training or everyday use, maybe a short run now and then. But for sure not a serious everyday running shoe! They feel a bit bouncy...
                                            Overall great shoe for recreational users.
