Women's ASICS® GEL-FOUNDATION® 8 :: If you're a runner who needs more support than what your standard stability shoe offers, you simply can't go without the Women's ASICS® GEL-Foundation® 8, an updated version of an already favorite among maximum support runners. You'll get a wide base of support and plenty of the stability features that you came to count on in previous GEL-Foundation® generations, while enjoying improved comfort and better shock absorption thanks to the new updates. 10.7 ounces
I have been wearing gel foundation since version 5 and was in love with version 8. I continued to wear the line as it moved passed version 8 and was EXTREMELY disappointed when the line was discontinued last year. I tried 3-4 different styles of shoes to replace the gel foundation and was never happy. I could never find the same level of comfort (for my knees), durability and support. I am a lightweight, high-mileage runner but due to soccer injuries to my knees and ankles growing up, I need extra support. This is the ONLY line of shoe that consistently provides that for me with good durability as well. I was THRILLED to find this on road runner's website when I went back to try yet another pair of some other style...PLEASE don't take them away again!!!
Do not wear well over time!
Only used these shoes at the gym. I had bi-lateral knee surgery so have not used them nearly as much as I would when healthy, yet they have worn out faster than any shoes I've ever owned! Within 3 months tears started to appear in the sides of the upper mesh. Now there are holes that go all the way through the inside lining. Sad, because I liked them and they were comfortable. Now, I have to get new shoes way before the time I would normally have to replace them!

These are great. I believe it is my second pair. Since I no longer run, I purchased these as walking shoes because of the support but they're also great for gym workouts. My only concern is how long this pair will last. I can see my bright colored sock through the mesh on the left shoe only. Maybe I didn't get a good pair as far as the materials. I would purchase again but if I experience the same issue, I would return.

Love these shoes! Want more color optio
I tried many shoes before going to a running store and having these recommended. After constant arch, foot and leg pain while wearing running shoes, these solved all these problems!! I have bought these year after year, though always been disappointed in the color options. I need a new pair and hate the gray/purple option. Trying to find another good fitting pair, as a result.
True to size
I love this shoe. I have flat feet and extreme over pronation and by putting my orthotics in these I feel like I can run forever.
But you do not need to order a half size up! I wish y'all would take that off there. 2ce now I ordered up (I guess I shouldn't blame you for the 2nd time, but I believe you!) and have had to return/reorder them.
I bought this shoe to replace the Evolution 6. Failed.
The shoe looks, feels, and even smells like a cheap $21.99 shoe from a discount store. The kind of shoes that come hooked together with a piece of elastic. The footbed is hard as oak and actually is uncomfortable to walk in. Not the quality you'd expect from Asics. Pronation control is no good. They feel scratchy.
My feet sees these shoes coming at them and scream, "Oh, no, we WON'T!"
This is the best shoe on the planet!
This shoe has great heel support, the most important feature of a shoe, since after all, the heel is the rudder of the foot! Helps to keep my pelvis neutral and pain away!
A return to perfection!
I am thrilled with the return of the gel foundation! If you are a mild to moderate pronator this is the shoe for you! It is perfect!

These are the perfect fit. My foot is a bit wide, but I LOVE these. Never discontinue this again!
I would purchase this product again
