I run 20-25 miles a week and love this shoe. I am a heavy runner at 200lbs. The support and cushioning of this particular model is awesome. I would highly recommend.

Best Uses

    I have been running religiously for 15yrs now, and I can honestly say this is the best shoe I have ever worn. The high impact foam is incredibly responsive, lessening the impact on my joints; I have had less joint pain and soreness since using this shoe. I was skeptical at first because of the poor performance of my Kayano-19s, but they really did a an amazing job with 21s. I highly recommend them.

          The best stability plus shoe in the industry. A great improvement over the last two releases, with color and reflectivity that can't be missed. Simply excellent.

          • Distance running

          At the present this is my "sole" shoe for all of my races and runs! (no pun intended). I am primarily an Asics guy hence my bias, I ordered a 1.2 size up and the toe box is great, Asics have great heel/ankle support IMO and I have ran a 26.2, 12K,5K and 13.1 since purchasing them a month or so ago. I now want another pair. I would like for Asics to introduce some "sexier" colors like: red, orange, etc. Lets put the neons and turquoises to rest for now!
