After being a long time GT-21** series die hard, I made a change to a more neutral as opposed to stability shoe. After being a top ranked amateur and now moved into a semi retired recreational runner this shoe fits the bill for purpose as well as cost effectiveness. The performance and comfort seems to be every bit as good as shoes of twice the price. The quality so far seems to meet the Asics standard as well as mine. I can give it a better evaluation after a few hundred more miles, hence the 4 star rating. The Pros I listed speak for themselves and the only Con is not necessarily "poor" but less then stellar arch support for a shoe that is supposedly for higher arches. All in all though, I will probably buy this shoe again and do recommend it, as in my opinion it serves the purpose that Asics has marketed it as.
