I tried this shoe three times then put it away for good. No cushioning. Just a hard, dead shoe. Curiously, I've found Asics Solyte trainers (Landreth 3, Cumulus 9) just awful, but love the Gel Ohana. Maybe less is more.

I thought that I'd try the Landreths for economic reasons. I'll probably stick with the Nimbus or the Saucony Triumphs. The Landreths are good on the threadmill, but not for asphalt. running. No cushion.Maybe they're not broke in yet?

Just passed 600 miles on a pair, these shoes still feel great. They have really retained their cushion and have the best ride I've ever experienced. I am actually sorry to see they have updated this shoe, I hope the update performs as well.

Best shoe I have ever run in. (6'1" 185 lbs) Comfortable just right fit, great cushion and extremely smooth ride heel to toe-off. Coincidence maybe but I've had a PR in every race I've run in these shoes. I was a big Brooks fan until I tried these, have over 500 miles on a pair and they still feel great. One big advantage that I've noticed is they they stay much more flexible in the cold than the Brooks Glycerins that I ran in last winter. The disadvantage (for winter running) is that they let a more air through which keeps my foot colder, had to switch to warmer socks. I will buy another pair.

I rotate these shoes with the new balance 755's and I must say I like the NB's alot better. I like the lighter weight and the cushion at first but the cushion went away before 200miles and now they just feel hard to run in. I do like them but not a great deal.

Unfortunately I am not in love with this shoe. I had the previous 2 models and LOVED them, but these are lacking in the cushioning department and are tough to get a good fit when lacing up. I have wide feet, so I was excited when I read that the forefoot on these was wide, but it's too wide. I can't imagine having normal feet in these! My back and hip are currently out of alignment (going into the chiro tomorrow), so hopefully with a healthy body I will feel better about these shoes.

At first, the heel seemed too high and the forefoot cushioning hurt me right at the joint of my big toe. I wasn't happy to say the least. However, after I broke them in a little, these problem went away. The heel still seems to high and it makes the shoe a little twisty, worrying me about future ankle problems, however, most of my running is on grass, so those of you on roads won't have this problem. Much more flexible than the landreth 2's but with that the sole seems to be wearing very fast- i only have about 200 miles on them and the blue at the tip is totally gone.

I have run a number of half marathons and half Ironman triathlons in this shoe as well as lots of training miles. This is the best shoe I have ever used including other Asics models and other brands. It is light (for a trainer) with good cushioning and flexibility. They say if the shoe fits - wear it, and this one fits me really well.

I've worn 10+ pairs of the previous models of the Landreth, and it was one of the best shoes Asics has ever made. However, they have altered the sizing on this shoe, making it wider and longer. Sizing down doesn't seem to work for me. Sigh.

Lightweight shoe, but that is about it. My feet slip and my left fascists muscle was bothering me then it caused ankle and calf tightness. After a three mile run. I believe there is two much mesh to offer any type of foot support.

For those who are rating these shoes a 5, you've got to be kidding. As Kini noted, the heel is way too wide. My foot was floating all over the place. How does one expect to run well in such a sloppy fit. Also, there isn't any arch support, I noticed fascitis creeping in within a mile of running. I'm a sub 4:10 miler and sub 30:00 10K and this shoe definitely does not fit the bill. I'm returning them immediately.

I have had very good luck with these shoes. I'm 6'1" 185 and these shoes have the best ride that I have experienced so far. I've tried both the Landreth 1 and 2 models and was not impressed with them for long runs, but these 3s have performed very well on long runs. They are light and stable with great cushion without being as motion-restrictive as the Brooks Glycerin 4's that I have used for the past few years. The Landreth 3 will definitely be my fall racing shoe.

The Landreth 2 was a reasonably cushioned shoe. Not my favorite, but I got some use out of it. The 3 was a big disappointment. It seems like the reduced the weight by removing cushioning. If your really looking for cushioning, pass on this shoe.

I'm 6'1", 170#, and almost exclusively a forefoot striker. This is an interesting shoe, compared to the Landreth 2. Lighter and a bit more flexible, BUT, where did the arch support go?! With the Landreth 2, even without as much forefoot cushioning as, say, the Wave Precision, I could still run on the hard stuff decently because the substantial and well-formed arch provided support and spread the impact shock. Not so with the L3, in which the arch is more of a lite touch contact thingee instead of a support unit. My arches are only medium high, not real high, and relatively flexible. I may try a SofSole arch support or something and see if it doesn't mess with the fit too much. I've got friends with rigid arches who loved the L2 and have walked away from the L3 because of the loose heel and low arch. Having tried on the just out Cumulus 9, the narrow fit and arch support in that shoe make it my next Asics purchase. At least they usually have one shoe with decent arch support.

I run all of my longer (20+) trail runs in this shoe. I also have worn them in 50s and expect to wear it in my 100 this summer. Light, soft but not squishy, fits like a glove - a loose one. I have a 10.5 - 11 foot and I wear size 12s. I wear lots of shoes for training - but this is the one I depend on for the longruns and road marathons.

One step forward and two back for this version. The 2s rode very nice, well cushioned and durable but a little tight in the toe box and across the arch. These have a nice wide toe box, but now the heel is way too wide. My heel floats no matter how I lace it. Caused a blister in 3 miles. Also the shoe is too firm. Not as firm as the Nimbus 8 but more firm than version 2 and more than I like. Thank goodness for the Vomero II.

This is the best shoe I've ever run in. Everything is just right- it's soft enough to cushion very well without being "pillowy," and stable without being restrictive. I have extremely high arches that actually make my feet supinate, but these shoes get my feet to pronate normally. My plantar fasciitis is almost completely gone thanks to these shoes (and some heel lifts), and I'm happily running 75 miles a week in these bad boys.

I loved my Landreth 2s which were the best shoes I've ever run in and have just got my first pair of 3s. They are definitely roomier because the upper is less shaped and in hindsight I may have been better going down half a size from 11 to 10.5 but I was not able to try them on before ordering. Cushioning is equally good but there is no way they are 20% lighter. I weighed them and they were 10g less than the 2s. I lace them through the very top/back eyelets (as I did with the 2s) but not the second highest/front. The heel fit is not as good as the 2s but Im pleased to hear others say this will improve as they wear in. If so they would be 5 stars. I have a marathon in 3 weeks so will have them ready to go by then.

I've only run in them once so far but am delighted to say that I like these shoes even better than the Landreth II's. Cushioning is springier and the fit is molto bene thanks to the soft forefoot upper. I dropped 1/2 size from 11 to 10.5, which feels comparable in terms of forefoot width to the 11 of the Landreth II. Didn't notice any heel slippage.

Good to hear from robh with regard to heel slippage. Do you have to use the back/top eyelets? The Landreth continues to break in well, either the PHF is starting to kick in or I'm getting use to the slightly looser heel cup of Asics shoe lasts. Flexibility is spot on, lots of it and in the right places, arch support is enough without being intrusive and the cushion feels forgiving without being too squishy or too firm, Solyte seems to be an improvement although with other models runners don't seem happy with it, hard to please everyone. Hanging out for Vomero II to throw into the training mix.

to rob -yes you are right about the heel but after 30 miles in mine the PHF foam grips as it should. Istill use cotton socks as 90% of runner's today use hybrids so sometimes with different linings in the heels of shoes made in separate factories can (ie) DS Trainer -hope this helps as i love my Land 3's up next 30k in Hamilton Canada.!!

I'm interested to know whether other runners are having to lace these shoes "orthodox" but using the top eyelets( as shown in the picture) or are they adopting a 'heel lock' configuration to get a good fit through the rear of the shoe, or is it just me cursed with a foot that doesn't work well with the Asics' last.I keep going back to the Vomero because of the awesome heel fit.

Somebody tell me: Do you notice the forefoot "twist gel" in this shoe? Do you notice it to the point it hurts your metatarsals? I had that problem in the Landreth II's. I wanna buy this shoe, but I'm concerned about the forefoot gel pad. Someone enlighten me. Thanks!

if you had shin problems with the landareth 2 or any asics in the past, then this isnt a shoe to try in hopes of "redeeming" your thoughts about this brand because as soon as you put them on, they can give instant problems again- that was how it worked with me, and i had to stop running for a week.

Great ride, awesome forefoot fit, lightweight and just the right amount of cushioning. My only complaint is the heel fit, I have to lace them to the top hole(as in the picture)to avoid heel slip which chokes my anterior tib a wee bit. Have run in the Vomeros for the last 12 months ,the Landreths are slightly more stable in a good way,similar cushioning but with much a better fit apart from the rear foot.

A little roomier width and toe box, great cushioning w/just enough stability. I'm 150 lbs., slight pronation w/medium arches, I'll be using these for several upcoming road marathons and 1 ultra. I liked the original Landreths, but these seem better.
