    These shoes are for low-mileage runners. Good support but not as durable as other ASICS shoes.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Strike 2 Running Shoe:

    We were looking for supportive shoes for my teenage daughter who has knee/hip alignment problems. These really did the trick! She says they're comfortable & supportive; she wears them to school all day & says her knees still don't hurt at the end of the day. Plus, they look "cool" enough for her!

      Overall, I'm pretty happy with these shoes. Not quite as much arch support as other Asics I've owned, but they're definitely comfortable. I really like the colors on this particular pair.

        I am not a runner. I ride Thoroughbred horses. I do wear these shoes all day at work in an office setting. I found that even though these shoes are supposed to be for high arches, I needed to order an insert. I have extremely high arches. Other than that, the shoe is great. Nice price, light and comfortable.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Strike 2 Running Shoe:

        This is an all-around solid running shoe, and priced to be a value purchase. I feel that this shoe is best suited for those who might be new to running, or those who want a slightly heavier, more supportive shoe than some of Asics' lighter models. I wanted a little bit more support than my typical Asics flats I use - and boy, did I get it with these. Slightly too durable for me (i.e. too heavy), but I get ample support. Nothing flashy, but this is a very functional running shoe that I anticipate getting a lot of training mileage on.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Strike 2 Running Shoe:

        I am a recreational runner (around 55 miles a month). I like these shoes they appear on sale frequently and they are definitely worth the price. I ran 8 races in 2010. Two of them were half marathons. I am 5'8" and weight 160lbs, so I'm a woman-sized woman.

        Great shoes but 300 miles is about where you wanna start phasing in your next pair. Most Asics will stand up to 400 or 500 miles.
