Bought this shoe for P90x3 as running shoes are discouraged. Bought it because it is what Tony Horton and the other folks in the videos have on and I exclusively use Asics for all my athletic shoe needs so problem solved. Very good shoe for doing the workouts, and any sort of functional training (P90x, Rushfit, Insanity, etc.). Provides good support for the foot without a lot of cushioning. Have never had a roll-over doing lateral work or landing on one foot, etc. Shoe feels very light and snug and I like the number of laces and ability to lace up very high on the foot. Super comfortable, feels like having a pair of socks on quite honestly. They have been so comfortable thinking about buying another pair for just walking around in. Have just about finished one 90 day circuit of the workouts and the shoe has held up well.
The shoe is very flexible and light, which may not be what some folks are looking for so be aware of that. For me, I like it as I want almost no impedance when doing the P90x workouts. Another thing to be aware of, the shoe does break in a little, so, be sure to always tighten all the laces to your preference each time you workout and the shoe will perform great.
One of my favorite Asics shoes of all time for me.
So glad I found this shoe- everyone's feet are different so this may not be everyone's answer but I searched for months and when I tried this on I knew it was what I was searching for. I do mostly strength training and like a low heel-toe drop for a more natural posture. Shoe is light and flexible, but for me a nice snug fit so and good support for agility type movements.
Yes this is a narrower shoe- good for if you have a medium to narrow foot. If you need a wide shoe this may be uncomfortable.
Also surprisingly this shoe is extremely comfortable to wear around and be on my feet for hours. Definitely not a typical Asics shoe and just the thing I was looking for! Had it for about 6 months now and holding up great.
Sleek but narrow
These shoes look great, very sleek looking. These are minimal shoes and a bit still so you don't want to be running too much in them. I use them for weight training. No cushion to blow out doing heavy squats or deadlifts but lots of stability. I couldn't give these 5 stars because they are a bit narrow. I decided to wear them around the house for a week to break them / break my feet into them. That did the trick but they are still stiff. That is a good thing in freeweight section but I have to bring another pair of shoes to run in unlike my NB or Merrills. These are a unique shoe that will enhance your confidence with its stability if you can work within its limitations.
Great Shoe For CrossFit
I bought this shoe for CrossFit training. It is firm and supportive for lifting, has extra material for rope climbs, and is light-weight and non-bulky for jump-rope/adjility.
Only thing to consider is the MINIMAL padding if you are planning on running more than 400m. Probably runs closer to a Vibram minimalist shoe.
Good looking lightweight cross-trainer!
I love the look and weight of these shoes and would rate them perfect except they are very narrow and somewhat uncomfortable. I'm hoping they stretch with use or I'm considering having them stretched.
