          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Foundation 8 Running Shoe:

          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!!!

                  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!"
